Water management Main source of water for the camp is the nearby Ngeng River. The water is pumped to the facility where it is treated through flocculation.

– The camp uses bucket showers for the guests as well as staff that limit the amount of water used per shower to 20 litres.
-Guest rooms are fitted with pit toilets that do not require flushing. This has greatly contributed to water conservation at the camp.
