Nomad Tanzania is the company behind this innovative eco-lodge that nestles deep inside the 4,500km2 Katavi National Park in western Tanzania.
Amongst a wide range of projects implemented in conjunction with local communities, Nomad has even set up a youth centre and environmental library in one of the neighbouring villages.
Continuing school support, a bee-keeping project for local villagers to produce honey, and a rocket stove project to slow the rate of deforestation add to an already impressive list of social upliftment initiatives currently underway.
Retaining the ambiance of an old pioneer safari set up, the remote and rustic lodge is powered exclusively off solar, while all drinking water is filtered locally. With an already admirable low-energy footprint, Chada Katavi is in the process of introducing a new waste management system that should shortly elevate Chada Katavi to amongst the ‘greenest or the green’ on the African continent.
The low energy and tread lightly approach of Chada Katavi has demanded its inclusion amongst the 50 leading sustainable destinations in Africa, as selected by David Bristow and Colin Bell for their magnificent coffee table book: Africa’s Finest.
