The Eco-friendly Mara Serena Safari Lodge
The Mara Serena Safari Lodge is committed to a long-term policy of sustainable conservation, which is linked to a programme of committed community support, designed to include both visitors and staff members. Our contribution towards sustaining the community that surrounds us includes; provision of drinking water and conservation centres.
In terms of its own ecological ‘foot' print, the lodge abides by a code of responsible practice in relation to: energy conservation, waste recycling (glass, plastics, ‘wet waste' ), sewage disposal, air emissions, non-CFC use, pesticide-use, noise reduction and visual pollution. Wherever possible, local produce is featured on the menus.
In order to promote the overall health of their workforce, Serena has also established the Employee Wellness Programme, which aims to address the holistic health needs of not only Serena's staff, but also of the communities that surround their lodges. In essence, the programme is devoted to reducing the incidence of accident and illness in the workplace, promoting healthy lifestyles, maximizing potential, and promoting optimum quality of life.
A wide range of campaigns is currently taking place, each tailored to the specific needs of the area in which it is located. Prevalent campaigns include; health and safety in the work place, HIV/AIDS, sexual harassment, gender equality and drug and alcohol abuse.
