The team at Mawimbi makes every effort to operate in harmony with its surroundings and be mindful of the rich flora and fauna native to this region. Environmentally friendly initiatives include cooking in a brick oven fired with bio-mass to reduce the consumption of gas, employing solar power, and purchasing locally wherever possible. Mawimbi also supports the nearby Maziwe Marine Reserve, which acts to preserve marine life as well as provide a sustainable income for the local fishermen.
