As an ecotourism operator Mbali Mbali Lodges and Camps are built with the environment in mind. The day-to-day operations procedures are designed to ensure minimal impact on the fragile ecosystem. Procedure includes procurement of eco-friendly products; sorting and recycling refuse; safe disposal of refuse and minimizing the wastage of water.
A considerable investment has been made in equipment to ensure that we maintain a low carbon footprint. Our properties operate on a hybrid system of generator power and batteries with invertors, thus reducing the use of diesel fuel.
In an effort to further lighten the carbon footprint, solar power was introduced. Solar hot water heaters are installed for every guest room, management and staff living quarters.
Solar photovoltaic panels were installed to complement the hybrid system for the stores refrigerators at Soroi Serengeti Lodge. We see solar power being the alternative energy for the Soroi Serengeti Lodge with 100% use for all guest rooms in the near future.
Utilizing 100% solar will ensure the long-term sustainability of our properties.
Mbali Mbali’s policy is to support local industry as much as possible to ensure the immediate community receives the benefits from the Mbali Mbali property operating in their area. Therefore, as much as possible, local suppliers are used. All our destinations procure their fresh fruit and vegetable purchases from the local vegetable markets where local vendors source the freshest supplies from the surrounding farmers. This goes a step further in enabling us to give the guests an absolute taste of Africa with the choicest of fruits and vegetables.
