Design

The design of each camp is dictated by its environmental opportunities, limitations and needs

Water

Water use is a mere 2% comparable to that used in lodges – hot water bucket showers ensure sustainable use of water.

Grey water is filtered through biochar which naturally creates refrigeration with wind

Waste

Using straw that breaks down the humanure from Biocamp loo’s to facilitate composting – sapling Yellowwoods, Red Elder and Ironwoods from the SANParks Diepwalle Nursery are replanted as part of our Reforestation program

Energy

We use only off-grid energy and have a focus on incorporating only renewable energy technology.

Community

Camp crew, guides (and where possible food) are sourced from the local communities

Why Biocamps?

It is ironic that stillness and quiet is rare and fleeting in our modern lifestyle when there is in fact, an inexhaustible supply of it. We also believe that the very nature of our mental and spiritual make up depends on being part of the natural environment.

Biocamps were conceived as a solution to get us back into Nature where the sound of a slow-moving river or a soft forest floor is able to restore and rejuvenate and does so, comfortably, safely and sustainably and in a non-invasive kind of way while having fun.
