Sustainable Tourism Africa Summit 2019 Awards

An ethical, sustainable approach to the natural and surrounding environment is embedded within The Sands’ philosophy.

We are delighted that our work in this area has been recognised at the Sustainable Tourism Africa Summit (STAS) 2019 Awards which acknowledges and rewards leadership for sustainable development in Africa.

The Sands at Nomad was nominated as a runner-up in the Innovative Waste Management for Sustainable Oceans category, for its waste management and sustainability project. Our ‘Thinking Green’ team, led by a dedicated Sustainability Manager, have turned waste into recyclable materials, collected waste from other local establishments, spearheaded beach clean-up days and fed free-range chickens on the Nomad farm organic vegetable waste from the Nomad kitchen

We aim to be a leading light for sustainable tourism practices on Kenya’s south coast and to help protect and conserve precious ocean life and make a difference to the local environment.
