Wetlands Project


One of the key Sanctuary Retreats Philanthropy projects at Sanctuary Olonana is the innovative wetland system designed to allow enhanced water conservation.

The clean water can then be released back into the Mara River and can also be used in the irrigation system within the camp, including the tree nursery.

 

Kenya Olonana - Wetlands Project

By treating grey and black wastewater in a unique system, the clean water can then be released back into the Mara River and can also be used in the irrigation system within the camp, including the tree nursery.

The waste water is processed through four different treatment pools allowing varying plant life to grow - and new plants that can thrive in each pool are being researched and introduced regularly.  Some even grow flowers that are used to decorate the camp. The project has been in operation at Sanctuary Olonana for twelve years and has helped the camp win the prestigious Eco Warrior Award from Ecotourism Kenya multiple times.
