    When choosing accommodation, more and more people are paying attention to what sustainable criteria the houses, in which they spend their holidays, fulfill. More and more care is being taken to ensure environmental sustainability and social commitment, and above all to ensure that hotels use nature's resources with the greatest possible care. We present eight exceptional hotels built from recycled or natural materials - from Egypt to Valais. This week’s favorite:  


    Award-winning eco-safari lodge in the green Chyulu Hills in southern Kenya with breathtaking views of the Kilimanjaro. The camp is part of a 110,000 hector private area owned by the local Maasai community. One of the main concerns of the lodge owners is to protect the home and culture of the Maasai.

    During the morning game drives, you can observe elephants, giraffes, antelopes, zebras, and lions. The friendly staff also organizes sightseeing flights over the Kilimanjaro, horseback safaris, and of course excursions to the local Maasai village. You sleep in reed-covered tent cottages, from the rattan armchair on your own veranda you can see far over the Tsavo Hills and the highest mountain in Africa. Exceptional: At Campi ya Kanzi, strict attention is paid to minimizing negative effects on the environment: The beds in the cottages are made of tree-trunks, the bathrooms have special eco toilets, and are heated with solar cells. And: In principle, only renewable materials were used in the construction of all houses. (from approx. 700 Euro per person/night incl. full board and all safari activities. Part of the money goes directly to the community of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust www.maasai.com)
