Positive Impact

Charitable contributions

Cape Grace founded the Green Grace Committee to encourage environmental awareness through responsible tourism practices. They also support two local charitable organizations. The SOS Children’s Village provides homes for children in need of foster care, where the Cape Grace is proud to sponsor a home within the village accommodating 10 children. The hotel also supports the Mhani Gingi non-profit entrepreneur development program, which helps women from previously disadvantaged backgrounds open their own businesses.

Water and energy conservation

The Cape Grace also embraces social responsibility through energy and water conservation. The hotel uses hand sanitizers, low flow showerheads and aerators, water-wise plants, greywater used to irrigate gardens, bath plugs removed, pool insulated to reduce evaporation by up to 70%. When it comes to energy use, the hotel has LED lights, and usage is monitored daily and corrective actions put place where needed.
