Classic yet contemporary
The location of this property is remarkable and the wildlife and activities are definitely alluring, but the main attraction is the lodge’s classic East African style architecture and décor. While the design creates an ambiance of authenticity, guests are offered all the luxurious comforts one could wish for.
The construction focuses on the waterhole, with the planning making a bold, but magical statement. This perfectly combines the living areas with nature creating a rustic and real bush appeal with a fresh and clean-lined modernity allowing animals and nature to take centre stage.
The nine stone, canvas and thatched suites have the character of a classic safari camp, yet the interiors offer the ultimate in contemporary luxury with panoramic glass windows and free-standing claw-foot baths. Each suite makes a statement with a botanical theme and all of them are outfitted with every conceivable comfort – including your very own Swarovski spotting scope.
Why wait for the most magical trip to happen… Start imagining lounging in the swimming pool overlooking the surrounding area awash with wildlife; recline on the Lodge’s elevated viewing decks, or relax unwind in your room and watch as predators and prey are drawn right up to the lodge.
