31st March, 2018
The Amboseli National Park is amongst the low rainfall areas in Kenya despite being beneath the crown of Mount Kilimanjaro. While the rivers remain dry for most part of the year, the only lake in the area is able to sustain a small number of birdlife. But, it is the swamp near the Ol Tukai Lodge that sustains the wildlife throughout the year.
However, this year, Kenya has seen one of its heaviest rainfall seasons in a long time according to the Kenya Metrological Department. Thus, we took this up as an excellent opportunity to plant 150 seedlings on 31st March 2018.
This is one of the many conservation and charitable projects that we undertake regularly through the Amrit Foundation.
It was a green activity for our guests too.
Amrit Foundation is a charity organisation founded by the late Mr. Harbans Singh Amrit. The foundation runs numerous projects in Kajiado County to improve the well-being of the local Maasai community. The foundation continues to spearhead the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities of the Manrik Group of Companies, including Ol Tukai Lodge, in memory of its late Chairman, in Nairobi, Thika, Naivasha and Makueni Counties, and counting.
