At Londolozi we recognise that the requirements for the future must be nurtured today. This is the inspiration for creating a modern African Village of tomorrow. This African Village is intended as a beacon of light and a place where people live in deep harmony with each other and the natural world…a place of belonging… and a place where new systems for living are embraced. Londolozi is a working example of how technology can be utilised to reduce impact within a wilderness reserve and lower demand on finite resources such as water and energy.
Accordingly, this ethos and philosophy has been written into the Londolozi mandate and implemented across all departments and divisions. This vision is dedicated towards shifting mindsets and embracing a lower impact lifestyle. We are currently at the forefront of renewable energy including solar energy usage and the intention of migrating to a full fleet of battery powered Safari Vehicles, starting in 2020. Our water recycling treatment plant is one of the most advanced systems in the Southern Hemisphere, and by 2020 the lodge will draw up to 80% of its energy requirements from solar.
We are ardently committed to reducing our waste and searching for alternative methods of conducting business on the path to achieving our eventual goal of closed-circuit consumption models in harmony with nature. We believe that Londolozi should become an example of using modern technology to support new systems for living and a lighter footprint on the land.
