Sustainable travel – 5 Eco Lodges in Kenya
If you are embracing more sustainable travel, Kenya is the perfect destination to consider, with a plethora of eco-friendly lodges to choose from.
Eco-tourism is defined by The International Ecotourism Society as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the welfare of local people”.
Kenya’s eco-lodges tend to use renewable energy such as solar power, conserve water, recycle waste, build positive relationships with the local community, and take a long-term, sustainable approach to business.
Here are 5 of our favourite eco-lodges in Kenya that have been awarded a gold standard by Eco Tourism Kenya for outstanding best practices i.e. they have achieved superior and replicable levels of excellence in responsible resource use, environmental conservation and socio-economic investment.
The Serena lodge is set high on a bush-cloaked hill, embraced by arcing vistas and washed by a sea of richly rolling grasslands. The lodge stands centre-stage to one of Africa’s most dramatic wildlife arenas and has a ringside seat for the greatest wildlife show on earth, the legendary migration of the wildebeest.
The area is not only breathtakingly beautiful, it is also home to many rare species of animals, is less than two hours’ drive from Nairobi and just a short distance to Lake Nakuru. The camp blends upper class elegance with modern luxury and offers cuisine and service of appropriately high standards.
