Kaingu collects 4500 bundles of grass with help from local community

Every year Kaingu Safari Lodge relies on the local communities for their supply of grass. This year there were 4500 bundles in total. Mr Oberty (pictured below), the local organiser who has taken over the role from his father (Mr Gibson) who is over 85 and was until last year out cutting grass himself, oversees the cutting team which generally comprises about 30 people – often older people or very young who have little other income sources.

There are easier ways for Kaingu Safari Lodge to source grass but the lodge is proud of the impact this has on the very local economy prefers to keep things traditional.
