The 4 C's: Conservation
Biodiversity is life. Conservation is safeguarding this biodiversity and the integrity of the ecosystem services it provides which support global needs. Conservation is a core component amongst all Long Runners. They support the sustainable use of natural resources that safeguards the integrity of the ecosphere. Activities in this dimension address issues related to biodiversity and ecosystem services as well as management of energy, water and waste, land planning and carbon impact reduction, among others.
NamibRand Nature Reserve’s biodiversity and habitats are effectively managed through active monitoring and innovative, adaptive management approaches. Today one of Southern Africa’s largest private not for profit nature reserves, it acts as a role model demonstrating holistic biodiversity conservation balanced with financial sustainability. A healthy and functioning ecosystem is now maintained, providing a sanctuary for the fauna and flora of the land, and its human inhabitants.
Ecofriendly building style ensures low footprint.
Since its inception almost two decades ago, Wolwedans has been committed to an eco-friendly building style. All camps were constructed using poles, elevated wooden decks and roll-up canvas walls. As no concrete was used during construction, all accommodation establishments can be dismantled easily, enabling the environment to restore itself in just a few months after deconstruction. All developments and operations are integrated with nature and the environmental impact of our infrastructures and activities reduced to lowest possible levels, whilst maintaining the quality of our product. Sensitivity towards wildlife and land is paramount in all we do.
We invite you to see Wolwedans for what it really is: It is a place to arrive, to be, to learn and unwind, whilst being looked after by a friendly and involved local team. We are not a hotel, but strive to set an example in eco-friendly, sustainable tourism. Each camp at Wolwedans is designed to minimize environmental impact, while satisfying the needs of visiting guests.
Wolwedans endeavors to achieve the following long term community impact: “We want our team and Namibians as a whole to enjoy improved livelihoods and practice sustainable lifestyles. We commit ourselves to this goal by prioritizing human resource development, social upliftment, sharing economic opportunities and the encouragement of others to help build a better tomorrow."
