Help us protect the environment.
Lower water and energy consumption means greener hotels.
We encourage our guests to eliminate single-use plastics like cups, straws, and cutlery.
Our future plan is to eliminate single-use toiletries like small bottles of soap and shampoo.
Our guests are encouraged to use towels for more than one day before we wash them to reduce use of detergents that pollutes our water.

Control of Hazardous Substances
The Crested Crane Bwindi Hotel determines suitability of all product before any purchase is made and provides full training for staff whenever new chemicals or equipment are purchased for use in the hotel.
