Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge

Featured Eco-Lodge Of The Month

Inspired by one of the Okavango Delta’s most secretive inhabitants, the guest areas of &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge rise out of the trees clad in a wooden skin of shingles and timber that mirrors the pangolin’s body armour of overlapping scales.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Ecotourism in Africa

Ecotourism in Africa is tourism directed towards natural environments, intended to support conservation efforts and observe wildlife. Ecotourism is a form of tourism in Africa involving visiting fragile, pristine, and relatively undisturbed natural areas, intended as a low-impact and often small scale alternative to standard commercial mass tourism. It means responsible travel to natural areas conserving the environment and improving the well-being of the local people. Ecotourism's purpose may be to educate travellers, provide funds for ecological conservation, to directly benefit the economic development and empowerment of local communities, or to foster respect for different cultures and rights. Ecotourism has been considered a critical endeavour by environmentalists, so that future generations may experience destinations relatively untouched by human intervention.

Greenwashing is the practice of making an unsubstantiated or misleading claim about the environmental benefits of a product, service, technology or company practice.

Greenwashing can make a company appear to be more environmentally friendly than it really is. It can also be used to differentiate a company's products or services from its competitors by promising more efficient use of power or by being more cost-effective over time.
