Organic Farming Practices at Ololo Safari Lodge
Ololo is proud of it’s sustainable farming techniques, as well as its water recycling and composting systems. This includes the production of our natural fertiliser “Ololo Worm Tea” through worm composting. 100% of kitchen and food waste is either fed to the Ololo chickens or composted for use in the gardens. The water supply for Ololo comes from our bore hole which we share with the local community, as well as filtered for guest’s drinking. A ‘grey water’ recycling and filtration unit treats all waste water that is then used in the Ololo gardens. The Ololo farm was granted organic status in April 2020 through Kenya Organic Agriculture Network (KOAN).

Wildlife Conservation and Education
The education of the public is a vital ingredient of the work that is required to be able to protect and conserve endangered wildlife species in particular. A visit to the most pre-emanate rehabilitation center, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, is one of the centerpieces of this tour. The center plays an important role in educating the public about the factors the lead to species of wildlife becoming endangered and what the public can do to help overcome this. And hence we complement wildlife viewing with the education of our visitors as to their role in working with us on these matters.

People

The communities that visitors meet on their daily excursions on this tour, highlight social purpose programs that are assisting people work their way up and away from many challenges. Economic empowerment for grandmas, who are establishing themselves in pig farming, is showing the way forward towards brighter and more sustainable futures. There is currently over 100 grandmas involved in this ground breaking program. And programs that are also introducing the Maasai to new farming practices (as their traditional nomadic ways are under threat), showcase the inventiveness and adaptability of the Maasai. And both groups of people (grandmas and the Maasai) are employed as tour guides whose knowledge about their communities, the social structures and traditional practices are second to none. this insight adds to the richness of the experience for guests. And in all these communities, employment is offered on a full time basis which enables a regular income to meet their obligations and keep their families together. And within the communities the employment of tradespeople (carpenters, plumbers, builders. house keeping staff, chefs and transport providers) provides work for over 60 persons.
