Sustainable construction methods for our new lodges

Our latest lodges, The Desert Grace and Etosha King Nehale, were built using a unique environmentally-friendly construction method. The main buildings were built with sandbags that were filled on site. The natural building material has excellent sound and thermal insulation qualities.

The walkways of The Desert Grace are made from recycled glass. Gondwana uses glass crushing machines to recycle the glass waste from our lodges, thereby reducing pollution. For the construction of the walkways at The Desert Grace we recycled over 200 tons of used glass bottles!
