Sustaining nature

At Green Safaris we don’t believe it’s good enough just to claim we are ‘eco-friendly’. We take being green very seriously. We strive to operate in the most sustainable way, using ‘green’ technology where-ever possible to reduce our footprint. Next to our green ethos, we are dedicated to support conservation and community development.

We actively support many conservation projects around our lodges and have initiated several groundbreaking community development projects, in which we will gladly involve our guests.

Green Tech

We take pride of being at the forefront of sustainable technology to minimise our footprint.
