Great example of conservation and sustainability!

Great job Jemma and all the Londolozi staff!!

Fantastic article Jenna, re-emphasizing the importance of the 5 R’s. As a guest, I recognize the steps that have been taken in the effort to reduce unnecessary waste, especially in the guest rooms. I love using the lotion and soap from the refillable bottles as the product is so good.
In the future, the electric Jeeps will be an added bonus although I’ve read some animals aren’t comfortable with the noiseless machines, having been habituated by the noisy green boxes.

Hi Jemma, your story is a inspiration for all of us. Trying to camp down on plastic can make a huge difference in the world. If everyone would just realize how polluted the country is, try and make a 180% turn about and start realizing we can make a difference by not using plastic for everything. Well done Londolozi! for your 5R’s usage, it shows and makes a huge difference.

Jemma thank you for your detailed outline of Londolozi’s comprehensive measures to combat greenhouse emissions and reduce carbon footprint. If only all tourist operators were so committed! Knowing that your travel destination is not impacting the planet negatively is hugely reassuring even though the air travel to get there is – at this stage anyway. Zero emission safari vehicles! Wow! Your 5 key Rs are so important for us all to keep foremost in our mind. Sustainable living is a lifestyle choice and yes the little things like saying NO to single use plastics do count.

Great ideas about avoiding as much plastic as possible or about recycling it.

The comprehensive commitment to sustainability is commendable. I hope you do a feature on the zero-emission vehicle project.
