We at Nomad Nature Camp want to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Not only for our guests, giving them an adventure of a lifetime, but also for our local community and the environment around us. We know and understand that we have a responsibility to do our part.
Our eco camp recycles all glass, metal and plastic. We make our food waste into compost that we use to grow our own vegetables, berries and herbs. We source other ingredients from local markets and farmers. Solar panels are used throughout the camp to provide electricity.
We also try to give back to the local community as much as we can. That’s why most of our workforce are local nomads living within the area. They have been with us from day one, building the camp and contributing with their knowledge. Our aim is to have 1% of the local community working with us before our opening.
We will provide local artists an opportunity to pursue their passion and display their talents by arranging performances within the community. This will support our artists while boosting awareness of the local culture and encouraging greater involvement from the local community.
Nomad Nature Camp invites you to live in one of our traditional Mongolian Gers. We offer two different designs, the historical based on the design used by Chinggis (Djengis) Khan and the “easier to move” and common Ger amongst nomads today. With a history of almost 3000 years this round tent construction of wood, canvas and layers of felt is still serving as an environmentally friendly home for families living the original Mongolian nomadic life, following the seasons and their stock.
The Ger or Yurt holds an open space where meals are served, stories are told and the family sleeps. Decorated with wooden furniture the different living functions are oriented by south, east, west and north, in the centre of the Ger the stove is placed. As a guest you may enjoy the Mongolian hospitality and guest are at normally seated in the westside of the Ger. You can also be invited to sit in any part of the Ger and next to the host. Like any household there are manners to follow, like not to whistle inside as it may bring bad luck or that the fire is sacred and should only be fed with firewood.
