CONSERVATION AT SANDFONTEIN
At Sandfontein we're taking our environmental impact seriously
An active approach to conservation
Hugging the banks of Namibia’s Orange River, Sandfontein Lodge & Nature Reserve covers a vast swathe of ecologically important land.
It remains almost completely untouched, yet even light levels of tourism can have a lasting impact. And that’s why at Sandfontein we are taking environmental issues so seriously.
Minimising our ecological footprint
In recent years Sandfontein staff have expanded the boundaries of the reserve, introduced new animals and used locally sourced materials to build the eco-conscious lodge.
Sandfontein has recently started using advanced water-filtering techniques, which means the reserve will be able to cut its reliance on plastic bottles. Both at the lodge and in the staff quarters, solar power provides a green source of energy. As a result, energy-saving bulbs, efficient electrical appliances, and low-energy LEDs are used wherever possible. Generators are on hand for emergencies.
