Great Plains has managed to create something special, not to mention exceedingly rare, with opulent Zarafa Camp in the Selinda Reserve of northern Botswana. They have skilfully crafted an environmentally responsible safari lodge without skimping on luxury, exclusivity or perfection.
To ensure guests aren’t in anyway inconvenienced by Zarafa’s environmentally responsible stance, the lodge has developed the sarcastically named ‘Zarafa Oil Field’ which houses a solar farm capable of supporting all the lodge’s power needs along with piping hot water 24/7. A UV filtration plant and highly effective bio-gas digester complete Zarafa’s green machine.
Lavish Zarafa Camp is a proud member of the top 48 sustainable safari operations, as selected by David Bristow and Colin Bell for inclusion in their magnificent coffee table book: Africa’s Finest.
This ecologically responsible book identifies a handful of truly sustainable safari operations from amidst the sea of green-washers and eco-pirates that pervade the African safari lodge industry. If you’d like to get your hands on a copy of the book, then you can order it here.
