Zinyala clients say?


Running an economically viable tourist lodge while minimising the impact humans have on our unspoilt bushveld heritage, is a fine balance to maintain. Our conservation programme features three fronts:

  • The eradication and management of alien plant species: These plants have found their way over from other continents, grow prolifically and threaten to overtake our indigenous plant species. Not only do we need to remove them quickly, but keep an eye out for their reappearance.
  • Fire control: Fire is a natural occurrence in nature, but the correct use of controlled burning and the control of runaway fires is essential in maintaining the balance of the natural environment.
  • Waste Water: Grey water is filtered, naturally cleaned and then used to create wetland areas, which in turn attract numerous species of waterfowl to the area.
