Conservation &Sustainable Tourism
There are two pillars that compile the AM Lodge conservation strategy; Biodiversity and Community. AM Lodge believes that these pillars need to be aligned to maximize Conservation and Sustainable Tourism efforts.
AM Lodge places great focus on assessment, evaluation, planning and maintaining efforts to assure that activities which impact the environment and community are minimized, monitored and rectified.
Since its inception in 2014, AM Lodge has been biodiversity conscious through the maintenance of vegetation, soil, alien plants, carrying capacity as well as an anti-poaching initiative. AM Lodge protects all inhabitants of the reserve through dedicated teams who patrol the property on and off foot in search of wildlife traps, snares and poachers. These dedicated teams are sourced from local communities.
Giving back to our Community
AM Lodge was built with the purpose to uplift and empower its immediate community. As the owner of AM Lodge grew up within Bushbuck Ridge, he identified the need to give back to the immediate community. AM Lodge employs approximately 80 staff members who have been sourced from the Hoedspruit community and has thus sourced an income to approximately 75 families. AM Lodge proudly supports local vendors and entertainment groups who are continually invited to perform at AM Lodge as part of a community upliftment program.
AM Lodge embraces the different cultures which exist within the immediate Hoedspruit community and showcases these traditions with pride. The AM Lodge culture remains the heartbeat of the organization, and the local community remains the source of our multi-cultural existence.
