All workers came from the local area and upon completion of the lodge, many continued in employment with the lodge as waiters, cooks, security , etc. We also provide educational opportunites to our staff. We support our local communities by educating a best practice towards the treatment of the horses, ensuring the animals we hire are well kept and fed.
