The lodge serves as an example of ecotourism (responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people) in Namibia as a whole by sustainable construction and management, by using 100% solar energy and by being a Joint Venture with the Wuparo Conservancy and its over 2 500 community members.
