Canvas Collective Africa impact highlights

Canvas Collective Africa is committed to sustainability in every aspect of its operations. They prioritize hyper-locally sourced ingredients from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, with a focus on organic food, and offer estate wines and locally distilled spirits. The camps are built using eco-friendly and sustainable materials like glass, bamboo, and timber and the tents are constructed entirely of canvas, an eco-friendly fabric. To conserve water, rain showers and water-efficient toilets are provided, and guests have the option to opt out of daily room cleaning and reuse towels. Tours and activities are organized in collaboration with local guides and businesses, all supporting the local economy in the Overberg.

The property also emphasizes environmental education by providing guests with information about local ecosystems, heritage, culture, and visitor etiquette. They actively support local artisans, such as the Cape Society of the Blind, by sourcing hand-woven light settings. To minimize environmental impact, they offer an eco-friendly toiletry range that avoids single-use plastics. Lastly, due to their locations in nature reserves and farmlands that support ground-nesting birds and other small creatures, no pets are permitted on the premises.
