Green Operating Systems

Ruckomechi is powered by a hybrid system, combining a diesel powered generator that charges a bank of batteries which in turn supplies part of the camp with electricity through an inverter. Thanks to this, the generator only needs to operate for eight hours a day. In addition, each guest tent has its own small solar panel and inverter to power LED lights as well as a solar-powered geyser to provide hot water.

Data collection in Mana Pools aids this project, which looks at the population status of wild dog in Zimbabwe as well as the human-wild dog conflict. It aims to protect and increase the range and number of wild dog through research, education and community involvement.
