Conservation & Community
At &Beyond we seek to maintain a low impact on the land while deriving high yield for our conservation initiatives by creating very small luxury lodges that support enormous tracts of biodiverse land, which remains untouched. At every lodge we seek out small (and sometimes not so small) but meaningful ways of putting our values into action every day. Each &Beyond lodge supports the conservation of wildlife and contributes to its neighbouring communities in one way or another.
Conservation at &Beyond Matetsi Private Game Reserve
- Having originally been involved in the conversion of the Matetsi concession from wildlife hunting to photographic safaris, a conservation triumph for Zimbabwe; considerable efforts, focusing both on wildlife and habitat, have been implemented to restore this unique wilderness area back to its pristine condition.
- 14 boreholes and security have been introduced to help support the wildlife in the area.
- The lodge geysers are solar powered.
- Our vegetable garden provides organic produce for the lodge kitchens.
