Sustainable Safari Stays: Eco-Friendly Design Practices in Hospitality


Safari hotels and lodges are leading the charge in sustainable hospitality design, blending luxury with a commitment to preserving the wilderness. Let’s take a look at the latest trends and tips in eco-friendly design practices that are transforming the safari experience for the better! Here’s how they’re leading the way:


  1. Embracing Renewable Energy

Many safari hotels are embracing the power of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power to meet their electricity needs.

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay is thrilled to introduce Ninh Van Greens, the first in-resort solar farm in Vietnam, named after the resort's unique location and the idea of harnessing solar to power the resort while growing crops for the restaurants and spa.

Due to the ingenious placement of the solar panels, the land beneath them can be used to grow organic food crops while energy is being produced.

  1. Using Sustainable Materials

From construction materials to furnishings and decor, safari hotels are prioritizing the use of sustainable materials. Think reclaimed wood, bamboo, rattan, and natural fibers, which not only reduce environmental impact but also add to the rustic charm!


  1. Designing with Nature in Mind

Safari hotels are camouflaging in their natural surroundings, trying to minimize disturbance to the ecosystem. Buildings are designed to blend in with the landscape, using earthy tones and organic shapes that complement rather than dominate the environment.


  1. Promoting Wildlife Conservation and Community Engagement

Many safari hotels support local conservation projects, contribute to wildlife research, and engage with local communities through ecotourism.


  1. Educating Guests about Sustainability

Eco-friendly safari hotels are also educating their guests about the importance of sustainability and conservation. Through guided nature walks, wildlife talks, and eco-friendly activities, guests gain a deeper appreciation for the natural world
