Responsibility


At Kisima Ngeda we take our responsibilities to our community and our environment very seriously. We make a voluntary contribution to three of our neighbouring local villages for every person who stays with us. Kisima Ngeda works with Carbon Tanzania, a conservation organisation that aims to inspire travellers and the travel industry to consider the environmental impact of a safari on both local and global communities. Carbon Tanzania protects existing forests in Tanzania to ensure the wildlife and local communities who depend on the forests, such as the Hadza, have a home to thrive in for generations to come. The emissions generated from your stay at, and the overall running of  Kisima Ngeda, are offset on an annual basis. Further information on the projects and communities your contribution supports can be found at

As part of our commitment  to reduce the amount of plastic waste the camp produces, the water provided in the tents and at the table during meals is filtered by reverse osmosis system and absolutely safe to drink. Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that uses a semi permeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and larger particles from drinking water. Reverse osmosis can remove many types of dissolved and suspended species from water, including bacteria, and is used in both industrial processes and the production of potable water.

Kisima Ngeda also assist the surrounding communities where needed. In the past projects such as sponsoring children to go to school: assisting in village and school building projects: providing a water station in the village: sending children on school trips: contributing to Hadza health projects and several others have been supported.

The result is that Kisima Ngeda has built an excellent long-term relationship with the surrounding villagers. One of the results will be obvious when guests are at camp: we have no need of fences.
