Carbon Footprint

Committed to the Environment

The Recreation Africa Group is actively involved in wetland rehabilitation at the farm Boekenhoutfontein in the North West Province. We have a real commitment to wildlife and its sustainable use which we promote through breeding programmes.

We are actively involved in the planting and propagation of indigenous trees. The Group is committed to recycling and composting and, where possible, we use recycled building materials to lessen the carbon footprint. We also make use of invasive trees to build and make furniture. 

The Group has launched its own organic farming programme - the produce of which is used in our hotels and restaurants, as well as to feed our own animals.
 A member of the Greening Hotels in South Africa project, had this to say about our efforts:

“I recently visited Misty Hills Country Hotel as part of a 'Greening Hotels in South Africa'  project, funded by the UK Department of Environmental Affairs, to assess the efforts they  are making towards becoming a more sustainable and green accommodation, and to where improvements can be made and new interventions brought in.
During my visit, I was able to walk through the whole property, viewing both the exterior  grounds and interior of the property.
The efforts Misty Hills is showing towards becoming more 'green' are commendable. For  example, sourcing 50% of their water from their own dam, efficient use of lighting and  energy throughout the property, reduction of plastic bottles, green towels and linen change  programmes, grey water re-use and use of mostly indigenous plants throughout the  property. Besides what they are already undertaking, my visit demonstrated that they are always  looking to improve and are on the right path to continual greening.”
