Community & Conservation

At Lengishu, we take great care to have as little impact on our environment as possible.

From the very beginning, our vision for Lengishu was to create an inspiring luxury safari home with a commitment to this eco-system as well as the people and wildlife who depend on it. This guided every element of the design, build and management. We are passionate about preserving the balance of the existing landscape in conjunction with Borana Conservancy and our neighbours. As shareholders of Borana Conservancy, we contribute to the core operational conservation costs. Collectively, we support an education programme, a mobile clinic, a water safety programme and a livetsock to market programme, which run side by side with our security and anti-poaching initiatives.

We encourage all of our guests to learn more about our community and conservation initiatives while staying with us by visiting schools, clinics and our ranger head quarters to get a true behind the scenes insight into how a successful rhino conservation is run in conjunction with neighbouring communities.

Community

People matter; it is the right of every person to have their basic needs met, and enhancing the well-being of communities is a fundamental obligation of all.

Culture

Celebrating cultural diversity and commonality nurtures understanding and fosters connections. Respecting cultural differences is crucial to our future.

Conservation

Thriving ecosystems and biodiversity are integral to the survival of people and our planet. Conservation is safeguarding this biodiversity to support global needs.

Commerce

Trading has been central to the development of civilizations over thousands of years and is likely to remain so, and so sustainability must be central to business.

Sustainability at heart

As part of our commitment we have ensured that you will have the slightest footprint as possible when staying with us. Our water is sourced from two solar-powered wells, its purity enabling us to filter, bottle and carbonate on site, removing the necessity of plastic bottles. We are committed to a Conservancy-wide recycling policy which ensures that none of our waste goes to landfill. We collect rainwater for irrigation and store it in a 300,000 litre tank, all of our grey water is recycled.

Lengishu is solar powered both for electricity and heating water and we have a strict sourcing policy which has dramatically reduce food miles.
