We are actively engaged in environmental conservation by setting up initiatives like no use of plastic, planting trees and community clean-up exercises.
No Plastic Use & Tree Planting: “In order to maintain eco-friendliness, we avoid using plastic and instead utilize only biodegradable and natural products. Additionally, each shower has a bucket to collect cold water, which is reused to water plants. Fallen and rotten trees are repurposed for the campfire, and the natural bush surroundings are not interfered with by cutting grass or bushes.
Clean Up & Sorting of Waste Matter: All waste matter is sorted by the lodge, including plastic, glass, and metal, and is sent to Nairobi for responsible disposal on a weekly basis. The only waste left in Lumo is biodegradable food scraps, which are disposed of in accordance with NEMA regulations in a pit.
Collaborate with Local Community: We actively engage and collaborate with the local community to coordinate and execute clean-up initiatives in the conservancy and its surrounding areas. Additionally, we regularly meet with local authorities to discuss wildlife and the community’s well-being.”
