Powering The Future with Solar Energy

Planet Lodges is committed to reducing our environmental impact and providing our guests with a sustainable experience. That’s why we continue to invest in solar panel systems to power our lodges. Solar energy is a clean and renewable source of energy that helps us reduce our reliance on the main power grid which uses hydropower backed with fossil fuels when water supply dwindles.

Our solar panel systems generate enough electricity to power our lodges’ operations, including lighting, heating, and cooling. We also use solar power to heat our water and generate electricity for our backup batteries. We are proud to be a leader in sustainable tourism in Tanzania. Our investment in Photovoltaic energy demonstrates our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and providing our guests with a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

In addition to solar panels, we have implemented a number of other sustainable practices at our Planet lodges, including:

  • Reducing our use of single-use plastics
  • Introducing bulk shampoo and bath soap dispensers
  • Buying local organic produce instead of imported items
  • Composting food scraps
  • Recycling waste whenever possible
  • Reusing towels and linens with the cooperation of our guests

We believe that it is important to be a responsible corporate citizen and to do our part to protect the environment. That’s why we are committed to implementing sustainable practices at our lodges. We believe that our efforts will make a positive impact on the environment and help us to create a more sustainable future for our guests and our planet.
