Our commitments

The basis of our environmental approach

Our hotel establishment at N’Gouja is committed to the environment. Aware that we are entrusted with an exceptional natural site, we take great care to ensure that it can be shared with present and future generations. This is why we have adopted an environmental charter to guide our development projects and daily operations. We are constantly looking for new ways to limit the environmental impact of our activities.
You are most welcome to take part.

Understand to Better Protect Nature

Listening to the sound of the sea gently lapping the shoreline, getting to know the playful makis, gazing up at the hundred-year-old baobabs… Le Jardin Maore offers a whole new range of nature-based experiences. Declared a natural protected area by the French government and classified as a marine protected area by the Mayotte Natural Marine Park, N’Gouja is home to a fantastic array of biodiversity, both on land and underwate.
We work closely with local associations to advise our teams and raise awareness among our customers, in order to maintain a balance between our human activities and the environmental requirements of the site.
One such example is the preservation of the N’Gouja meadow, a genuine marine meadow for turtles, which is under constant threat from bathers. To protect the N’Gouja site in the long term, we recommend that you follow the rules set out in the charter below.

Makis de Mayotte

Welcoming maki

The Fauve Lemur (Eu lémur fulvus mayottensis) is a species unique to Mayotte, living in groups with a social model similar to our own. Its small hands, golden eyes and soft fur make it look like a cuddly toy. They are not shy, and the trees in Le Jardin Maore tropical park are home to several dozens of them. You can watch them from your terrace. They jump from branch to branch, peel their fruits and play with their young. However, we recommend that you do not feed them, as this alters their eating habits and can affect their health.

Tortues Marine

Scientific monitoring of sea turtles

The CEDTM (Centre d’Etude et de Découverte des Tortues Marines – Centre for the Study and Discovery of Marine Turtles) is an association under the 1901 law, whose purpose is to develop, on a local and regional scale, research programmes on marine turtles and their habitats, and projects to raise awareness and preserve the natural and cultural heritage associated with marine turtles. The daily activities carried out in partnership with Le Jardin Maore contribute to the management objectives of the exceptional natural site of N’Gouja and are part of a sustainable economic development and ecotourism approach.

Our Association Partnerships

Several associations work closely with the resort to ensure that tourism development is in harmony with the environment, including:

  • The Kiss-One environnement association in Mbouini regularly organises beach clean-up and litter awareness sessions. The beach at N’Gouja is very popular, especially for picnics with friends and family, and unfortunately a lot of rubbish is left on the site or washed up on the shore during high tides. By encouraging young people to collect and sort rubbish, the association is raising awareness of the extent of environmental issues and the importance of changing our habits. At Le Jardin Maore, volunteers are greeted with a breakfast and can sort the waste they collect directly using the sorting bins set up within the resort. If you’d like to get involved in the association’s work, don’t hesitate to ask us for details!
  • The GEPOMAY Association, a partner of the French League for the Protection of Birds (LPO), in association with the resort and specialist Antoine Rouillé (Oxydis Expertise), is developing an educational trail on the fauna (birds, reptiles, insects) by installing educational panels. Part of the trail is located on the public access road to N’Gouja beach, a great place to observe and listen to Mayotte’s birds (planned for September 2023). Take the time to watch Souimanga, Bulbul, Malagasy Courrol, heron, tern, paille-en-queue and other Mayotte birds take flight, and find out more about these emblematic species! Take a look at the ground and find out which reptile and insect species populate the N’Gouja site: gecko, Comoro skink, etc. Learn to recognise them and discover their habits and ecological role! This project is supported by the European LEADER funds in Mayotte, and the GAL Ouest Grand Sud of Mayotte..
  • From September 2023, Le Jardin Maore will be home to students from the Maison Familiale Rurale de Chirongui (rural family centre) and the Lycée Agricole de Coconi (agricultural college). Students will be able to put into practice what they have learnt in class at Le Jardin Maore throughout the school year. Given the freedom to choose the planting they wish to encourage, they use their knowledge and skills to create Le Jardin Maore’s vegetable garden: vanilla, aromatic herbs, market gardening, anti-erosion devices, etc. All the work carried out on the site is done with full awareness of the environment, avoiding all use of pesticides and favouring organic methods of pest control. Our gardeners share their know-how and learn from each other’s methods. They ensure the maintenance of the plantations between two sessions of work by the students.

What are your eco-gestures?

We also encourage you to adopt the eco-gestures below during your stay at the hotel:

  • Turn off the lights when you leave your room.
  • Limit the number of changes of linen in your room and bathroom.
  • Close the windows in your room if there is air conditioning.
