This quote is pertinent to the central questions we have posed repeatedly in this book: how much luxury and comfort do you need on safari, and how do you provide that while inflicting the least possible damage on the natural environment? Here is what we consider the core ingredients that go into making the ultimate green lodge located in a prime wildlife area. While this lodge does not actually exist, we hope that in time all safari lodges will strive to implement these and other sustainable practices. It’s a big topic and could even be the subject of a book of its own. Perhaps this will be the prompt, for others with more expertise than ourselves in the field of rapidly evolving and improving “alternative” technologies, to explore, improve and expand on the topic in much greater detail. We can only present the sum total of our collective knowledge in point form of what we believe every lodge should be and do, or strive to.
