Consol Solar Jars are journeying across our African continent. Outdoor and indoor solar lighting is all the rage at Stormberg Elangeni Safari Lodge in Zambia.

“The Consol Solar Jars have been worth their weight in glass,” wrote Sylvia van Staden. “We leave them on bedside tables for our visitors. They use them as portable lanterns. No more flashlights or traditional torches in our camp! A visitor begged one off me and stuffed it full of socks to keep it from breaking in his luggage on his flight back to USA. A father and his two daughters stayed in our fly-camp while on safari and the jars were their only light. We rave about them!”


The room-attendants put the jars on the riverbank to charge by day.
