Our impact on the local community and more
Table Rock Jungle Lodge is committed to the core values of sustainable tourism: helping the environment, aiding the local community, and educating travelers about both. Table Rock Jungle Lodge is committed to providing guests and visitors with a sustainable quality product that protects the environment and conserves natural resources while promoting and protecting the local culture and economy.
Specifically, Table Rock makes a concerted effort to do the following:
Run the Mahogany Reforestation Project by
• Replanting with indigenous and endemic species of plants and trees where possible, including our Mahogany Reforestation Project.
• Clearing underbrush from forested areas and maintaining that level of forestry maintenance in order to promote the healthy growth of existing mature trees and reducing the impact of wildfires.
• Encouraging the planting of trees and plants necessary for wildlife.
Maintain resource self-sufficiency by
- Generating our own electricity which uses a highly efficient battery/inverter system, with plans to supplement with renewable solar energy.
- Supplying the majority of our running water with rain water.
- Supplying the majority of our fruit from the farm.
- Supplying all eggs from the free-range chickens on the farm.
- Supplying fresh herbs and select vegetables from the farm.
Conserve the environment & natural resources by
- Utilizing compact fluorescent light bulbs.
- Minimizing the use of electrical lighting.
- Reducing the effect of light pollution, which affects bird migration and the normal patterns of nocturnal animals, by using low-wattage lighting, covered directional lighting, and fewer lighting fixtures.

- Adopting one mile of roadway to be kept free from litter on a weekly basis.
- Limiting the number of electrical power outlets.
- Operating only the most energy efficient practical large appliances possible, such as the butane gas-powered chest freezer and oven, and Energy Star rated refrigerators and washing machines.
- Utilizing gravity, rather than gas or electric pumps, for water flow.
- Limiting water usage and irrigating specified areas with “gray water” from showers, sinks, and laundry.
- Utilizing on-demand water pressure-activated butane water heaters, rather than constant running tank style water heaters.
