Sustainability Practices

At The Boma they are committed to operating in a manner that maintains a balance between helping the environment and the community in which we live while providing guests with a comfortable atmosphere to relax in. 

Hot Water
The Boma uses solar water heaters for all their showers. This reduces the electricity consumption of the hotel drastically. Water is a scarce commodity in Africa; customers can help save water by spending less time in the showers. They also utilize a water catchment system enabling them to store rainwater and pump it into the main tanks when needed.

Water Catchment
They utilize a water catchment system enabling them to catch and store rainwater in separate tanks. They use this for gardening, or to pump treated water into the main tanks when needed during water shortages.

Drinking Water
They use large reusable 20 litre mineral water fountains, which they dispense into glass jugs (in the rooms and in the restaurant). This cuts out plastic water bottle waste 100%.

They exclusively use energy-saving bulbs throughout the hotel to reduce energy costs.

Locally Sourced Produce
Where possible they use locally sourced fruits, vegetables, and meats in their restaurant.

Home Grown
They home-grow most of their salad ingredients, fruits, and vegetables. They also compost organic waste to make fertilizer.

Recycling Paper & Glass
The Boma supports papercraft, a fantastic grassroots project that makes eco-friendly products such as menu covers, recycled paper used in albums, notebooks, and glass beads. They also make the hand-made soaps that we use in our guest bedrooms. Their glass waste (wine bottles, broken glasses, jam jars) and all of the paper waste are taken to papercraft and recycled. Many of the items in their craft shop are from this source.

They use bicycles for running short errands to shops, for delivering waste material to the composter, and for collecting fruit and vegetables from their gardens. Bicycles are also available for clients of rental basis if they want to explore Entebbe in an environmentally friendly manner.
