Be part of the Tongole story

Tongole Wilderness Lodge is dedicated to operating the business in the most sustainable way possible and with a commitment to a positive impact on the surrounding communities. The lodge provides significant training and employment opportunities in a very poor region of the country. The safari activities on offer to the lodge’s guests have been carefully selected to have, a low environmental impact to protect this pristine region. Tongole Lodge was built with locally sourced and sustainable materials and self-sustainable systems like solar power generation. Finally, at the heart of the Tongole Wilderness Lodge is The Tongole Foundation; a community uplift charity, which has a lasting impact on the community, providing hope and pride in this beautiful area.
