Set in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Oudebosch, which consists of five self-catering cabins, an eco-pool and function venue, has already been recognised as an international benchmark for sustainable development. The cabins received the prestigious Holcim Award for Sustainable Construction in 2012 and has now been further acclaimed by AfriSam and the South African Institute of Architects.

CapeNature CEO, Dr Razeena Omar, says: “With its low impact and sustainable features such as the eco-pool, green roofs and composting eco-toilets, Kogelberg’s Oudebosch is an excellent example of how innovative and sustainable design can be incorporated into nature-based tourism products.”

“After being awarded ECO Certification by Ecotourism Australia earlier this year, the AfriSam-SAIA award is another fitting endorsement of our commitment to developing recreational and tourism products which leverages the Western Cape’s natural heritage.”

Anton Bredell, the minister of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning in the Western Cape, congratulated CapeNature on the award.

“It is always gratifying when good work that’s being done, gets recognised. The Oudebosch camp is the kind of sustainable conservation driven tourism we want in the Western Cape. It is not only responsible tourism, but people also love it,” says Bredell.

The AfriSam-SAIA awards were held in Cape Town in October 2016 and recognises projects that demonstrate an integrated approach to architecture, natural systems and technology.
