Impact on the natural environment and resources.
We enforce a number of do’s and don’ts to our customers and staff when out in the wilderness. We always stay in solar powered lodges when possible, discourage showers, and only use gas or kerosine when camping. We ensure we use boiled water for drinking, and never use bottled mineral water. We also suggest putting on an extra layer of clothing rather than another log on the fire! We avoid shortcuts through hillsides and fields to prevent erosion and we are extremely conscious of disposing waste produced by our groups in an ecologically friendly way.
