We have integrated these design ideas into all of the structures, energy usage, and waste management, in order to enhance the surrounding environment and to ensure a sustainable development.
Jemby-Rinjah Eco Lodge was constructed with minimal site disturbance, using sustainable materials. Limited use is made of off-site energy sources, with the utilisation of energy saving lighting and heating. Water saving devices has been installed where possible. Our on site waste management system boasts grey water treatment, composting toilets, and the implementation of recycling policies and practices.
