Our commitment to the environment permeates across everything we do.
Since our very first day of construction in 2017, our priority has been to minimize our environmental impact by way of the eco-friendly building products and building methods we have used. At Jackalberry Chobe we are committed to not only protecting the environment and the earth’s precious resources, but to also supporting our community in using locally-sourced, eco-friendly products.
All our building materials have been regionally sourced, from the gum poles and wood used to build the lodge to the grass thatching used in our public areas.
Our wood comes from sustainable, non-indigenous forests, and the bush landscape around the camp has been left natural, reflecting our local trees and fauna without the introduction of exotic trees or plants. Guest tents are stocked with eco-friendly amenities, and recycling bins are in use across the property.
The camp features partial solar water heating, solar lights and LED efficient bulbs. Low wattage invertor air-conditioners are used in our guest tents, and plastic conservancy tanks are in place for sewerage.
