Protecting the natural resources is one of main goals of the Severin Safari Camp. They have therefore developed a programm which is environmental friendly.
In Tsavo, they work closely with the Kenya Wildlife Service, as it is important for them to educate their guests and partners in the necessity of saving the environment and nature. Severin Safari Camp is the first camp that possesses a waste water treatment plant. Waste water from tents and the kitchen is collected and filtered in a natural way with lava stones, gravel and sand. It is then used for watering the 25 hectare lawn within the camp. Fresh water is brought to the camp by using their own pipeline which comes directly from Mzima Springs. Hot water for showering is gained day and night exclusively by solar energy and heat recovery of the power generators. Therefore, for heating the water, they do not need any diesel or electricity. Lamps with low energy bulbs light the camp and at the “Out of Africa”. Rated by Ecotourism Kenya – Eco-rating Scheme Award: Silver
