Celebrate Earth Day with Saruni Basecamp

As we prepare to celebrate Earth Day, we invite you to join us at Saruni Basecamp in a crucial conversation about the impact of plastics on our planet. The theme for this year’s Earth Day is “Planet vs. Plastics,” highlighting the urgent need to reduce plastic pollution and protect our environment.

Plastic pollution is a global crisis that affects every corner of our planet, including the stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife of Africa. From the vast savannas to the lush forests, plastic waste poses a significant threat to the delicate balance of ecosystems that make our continent so unique.

At Saruni Basecamp, we are committed to sustainability and conservation. We have implemented various initiatives to reduce our plastic footprint and protect the environment we call home. Through education, conservation efforts, and community engagement, we strive to make a positive impact on the planet and inspire others to do the same.

One of the key ways we are tackling plastic pollution is by reducing single-use plastics in our camp. We have replaced plastic water bottles with reusable bottles for guests and staff, and we provide filtered water stations throughout our camps and lodges. Additionally, we use biodegradable and compostable materials for our dining and restroom facilities, minimizing our impact on the environment.

Education is also a vital part of our conservation efforts. We educate our guests about the importance of reducing plastic waste and the impact it has on wildlife and ecosystems. Through guided tours of our waste management station and informative sessions, we aim to raise awareness and inspire action.

Furthermore, we are actively involved in community outreach programs to support local initiatives that promote sustainable practices and reduce plastic pollution. By working together with local communities, we can make a greater impact and protect our planet for future generations.

This Earth Day, we encourage you to join us in our commitment to protecting the planet from plastics. Whether you are joining us on safari or participating in Earth Day activities in your own community, every action counts. Together, we can make a difference and ensure a cleaner, greener future for all.

Happy Earth Day from Saruni Basecamp!
