Our Impact | Carbon Offset Program | Lepogo Lodges

We offset every international guests' carbon footprint from when they leave their homes to when they arrive at one of our lodges and back again.

Different modes of transport and different styles of travel carry different levels of emissions. When you are at the lodge, our team will go through your journey with you and calculate the carbon emissions for your journey. We then convert this to a monetary figure and ask you to choose which of our projects below you would like us to offset your carbon footprint into.

Carbon offset program


Most families cook on an open stove requiring a considerable amount of wood daily which in turn creates emissions.

New stoves have been especially created to be much more efficient so that much less wood is burnt for the same amount of heating. It is estimated that they will reduce the wood used in one household by up to 2.5 tons per year. They will save trees, hours spent collecting wood and emissions from burning less wood. Lepogo Lodges works with the Lapalala Wilderness School’s community outreach project to donate these stoves.
