Wildtrack Safaris Eco Lodge awarded full Ecotourism status
Wildtrack Safaris Eco Lodge, with a dedicated team of passionate and caring individuals focussed on delivering an exceptional experience, is proud to have been recognised by Botswana as a leading Eco lodge, having recently being awarded full ‘Ecotourism’ grading – the highest certification to be awarded to lodges in the country.
Nestled in the heart of untouched Africa, Wildtrack Safaris Eco Lodge is a private and exclusive lodge that offers more than just a bush safari. Uniquely situated in the centre of the newly formed Kavango-Zambezi Trans frontier Conservation Area (the largest of its kind in the world), this choice destination not only combines luxury with fantastic food and personalised service – but also offers one the opportunity to experience ‘first-hand’ the peaceful and dynamic cultures of the ‘Batswana’
There are a range of activities on offer, which include morning and sunset drives in open 4×4 game viewer’s, guided bush walks, as well as interactive tours within the community of Pandamatenga – allowing guests the opportunity not only to observe, but also contribute towards ongoing community enrichment programs.
The lodge certainly lives up to its name with its aim being to minimise impact on the environment, while encouraging sustainable development and promoting conservation. The entire lodge is solar-powered; all hot water is supplied by solar geysers, waste is recycled, effluent treated and returned to the environment safe and clean.
A number of projects have been initiated in conjunction with various community stakeholders, such as the ‘Wild Child’ project – which aims to encourage and instil conservation values with the youth in the village; supporting the ‘Silent Dropout’ program, developed by teachers at the Pandamatenga Primary School; engaging the local dance group ‘Dilomakwati’ to interact with guests; and assisting in building a kitchen for the ‘bread lady’ Mma Meshack – who has a heart bigger than her income!
A stay at Wildtrack Safaris Eco lodge is sure to leave lasting memories, along with renewed views on conservation, community, and sustainability.
