COMMUNITY & CONSERVATION

Old Drift Lodge’s Eco-initiatives

Old Drift Lodge emerges from the plains of incredible natural wonder, where lives a diverse species of plants and animals that generously allow us to immerse ourselves in the raw beauty of their home.

In turn, we cherish and protect the natural wonders, resources, and history that encompasses the camp.

Grey Water Systems at The Elephant Camp

Grey Water Use.

In line with our minimal waste philosophy, we use grey water for irrigation at Old Drift Lodge, notably on our indigenous tree nursery.

Things to do Sundowners at the Batoka Gorge

Solar Heating.

The sun seems to blaze brighter over Africa than anywhere else in the world. Our solar water heating systems harness the energy provided by the sun and allow the camp to be partially run by this natural power house.

Community Relations

Community Relations.

In order to ensure sustained and effective conservation, community involvement is essential. Wild Horizons works closely with the local community, pooling our knowledge with theirs, to create projects which maximise environmental awareness. We are a rich nation because we live in an environment of invaluable natural capital and this natural capital needs to be conserved with our collective efforts. Social responsibility is an integral part of life in Victoria Falls. Wild Horizons supports many initiatives, logistically and financially, in the region.

Soil Erosion Conservation

Biological Monitoring and Erosion Control.

Bi-annually, a qualified Environmental Officer visits the camp to monitor the biology of the Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary. Surveys are conducted on our resident orphaned elephant herd and the other wildlife that live within the sanctuary, so that their impact can be monitored and adjusted to lessen environmental pressure. Greedy alien vegetation is eradicated and soil erosion is carefully managed, both within the reserve and in neighbouring communal areas.
