At Kaliwa, we work to ensure that our lodge promotes conservation of the natural and human environment in which we are located.

Energy Conservation

  • Installation of solar panels for hot water

  • Use of energy saving light bulbs

  • Encouragement of a 'switch off policy'

  • Printing whenever possible on recycled paper

  • Regular boiler checks

  • Purchase of energy efficient equipment

Recycling and Waste Reduction

  • Use of recycled or recyclable products whenever possible

  • We are working towards having our own in-house water-bottling system, whereby filtered water is supplied in branded, re-useable glass bottles, significantly reducing our wastage and carbon footprint

Limiting Water Consumption 

  • We endeavor to keep washing loads to a minimum by reducing the number of towels washed, and washing only with full loads. 

  • We are vigilant about good maintenance, which helps to prevent waste through, eg, leaking taps.

Responsible Purchasing 

  • Use of local products to support the local community and to reduce the detrimental environmental impact caused through travel 

  • Development of our own vegetable garden 

  • Increasing responsible purchasing to include sourcing products from ethical suppliers, 

  • Use of Fair Trade, organic and certified products whenever possible

Guest contribution 

  • We give guests the option to not have their towels laundered daily

  • We request that equipment not be left on standby or charging for prolonged periods



We welcome suggestions from our guests that will enhance our sustainability.
