Conservation Criteria
Community Criteria
Solid waste management Waste is separated at source (plastics, organic, glass, tins). The waste is later moved to a waste collection center at its sister camp-Kichwa Tembo for further sorting before final disposal via -&Beyond Head Office to recycling companies in Nairobi. Organic waste is composted within the facility in a well-covered pit to keep off scavengers.
To reduce on plastic waste, water is served in re-fillable glass bottles which are available in all guest rooms and restaurant. The facility also uses rechargeable torches for its guest tents thus reducing on battery waste. Used oil is given to locals for domestic timber use
Water management The camp obtains its water from a borehole within Kichwa Tembo Camp which is then pumped into reserve tanks with a total capacity of 40,000 liters. The tanks are fitted with automatic float switches to control water overflow and avoid spillage and the water also metered at source for monitoring purposes.
Water is further conserved through the fitting of guest rooms with water efficient shower filter heads and dual flush toilet cisterns. The guests are also encouraged to re-use bathing towels to reduce water consumption.
The management enhances staff sensitization in water use during departmental meetings and on their monthly environmental days.
Visitor communication & education The facility briefs its guests upon arrival and also provides them with room information folders, birds and animals’ checklist and orientation booklet in the guest tents. Room folders have information about the camp operations and values, Masai Mara ecosystem, the local Masai community and environmental conservation initiatives.
Guests are also briefed during game drives by the rangers. The camp offers nature walks to guests. The walks are led by the resident naturalist who offers an opportunity for visitors to explore and learn about nature.
Pollution The generator room is sound proofed and fitted with a muffler, aimed at containing the noise pollution. Additionally, the camp has fitted low wattage bulbs on the pathways to minimize on light pollution.
Environmental conservation Bateleur Camp has been architecturally designed to blend in with the environment with little or no habitat disturbance. A tree planting program by the camp has also seen 5000 tree seedlings planted, with a 90% success rate, creating a woodlot that surrounds the camp. This has ensured the preservation of the existing riverine forest system’s natural state.
Apart from holding monthly environmental cleanup days, the camp also assists Mara Conservancy in wildlife monitoring such as identifying animal snares, research, and elephant anti-poaching awareness. The facility’s rangers and guides are involved in these activities.
Waste water management The facility has set up a system to manage its grey and black water effluents. Grey water from the kitchen flows through a grease trap and drains into a soak pit while that from the staff quarters, laundry and public areas is managed through Bio-digester treatment system. Black effluent is also managed through the Bio-digester treatment system fitted with access manholes into septic tanks. The water is treated for recycling and re-use.
The facility has a swimming pool which is cleaned via vacuum cleaning and backwash systems and water pumped back to the pool. PH and chlorine levels are checked daily through a test kit. Backwash is done depending on guest occupancy.
Water effluent tests have been conducted in compliance with Environmental Management Co-ordination (Water Quality) regulations of 2006 and the facility issued with an effluent discharge license.
Purchasing and supplies The camp purchases its products on weekly basis. The vegetables are packed in re-usable crates whereas meat is packed in cooler boxes. Besides dry products, e.g. cereals are bought in bulk 90kg, 50 kg etc. Re-usable cartons are encouraged for packaging
Employment and remuneration/staff welfare The camp has a staff committee which represents staff issues to the management.
Staff education, communication and awareness training The camp holds daily briefing meetings at departmental levels and monthly environmental days which are used as a platform for staff communication and education.
