The Boardwalk Lodge owners and staff pride themselves in the sustainable development and management of the lodge and the surrounding area. As part of a conservancy consisting of approximately 40 properties, Boardwalk Lodge aims to enhance the natural environment by eliminating alien vegetation and conserving indigenous flora.

As Boardwalk Lodge has been built on 2 hectares of lush indigenous forested land along the steep slopes of Wilderness Heights mountainside, great care had to be taken in the construction of all buildings. A full environmental impact study had to be approved before construction commenced. A tremendous effort was made to ensure that the surrounding indigenous forest was not damaged and that the environmental authorities were completely satisfied with the construction techniques used in building these beautiful structures.

Glass, plastic, paper and tin waste is sorted and collected for recycling on a weekly basis.

Guests are provided with environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free bathroom amenities that are purchased from a local supplier.

The Boardwalk Lodge team is diligent not to waste energy and water; the consumption of which is continuously monitored.
