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. 

 

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.
