Today the lodge is owned by the non profit – Caleo Foundation with it’s primary focus on the protection of threatened ecosystems and the wildlife in Africa. The foundation is devoted to delivering a tailored guest experience and has upgraded all guest facilities with the further introduction of a new fleet of game viewing vehicles with individual seating.
