In line with the Green Safaris’ ethos of responsible travel, the team at Kaya Mawa has been working hard at greening the lodge, particularly by taking it off the grid.
Part of the beach on Likoma Island is now lined with solar panels so that Kaya can power itself off the sun, which shines so strong and bright here in the Warm Heart of Africa. By going off the national electricity grid which runs mainly on carbon-heavy fossil fuel based energy generation, Kaya is reducing its carbon footprint and overall negative impact on the special environment of Lake Malawi.
The world is changing and today sustainable, environmentally friendly and responsible travel is a key element in the success of a property and travelers should rightly expect this of top lodges. We are all responsible for the areas in which we live and work; the environment and community all play a major part in preserving the treasures the world has offered us.
The Kaya team is leading a number of projects in responsible travel such as the e-Quad bikes, the Katundu Workshop, Likoma Clean Up Project, Likoma Island Reforestation Project, Likoma Health Projects and Likoma Education Projects.
Well done to Kaya Mawa for this important contribution to creating a greener Malawi!
