How were the interior's achieved

The interiors of the lodge have been exclusively manufactured to encompass the style, form, raw material and skills of Africa, but delivered in a fusion form intended to bring a contemporary signature to our heritage.


Each piece has been hand made specifically without the aid of automation to ensure the raw skills of carpentry at a basic level are drawn into a viable commercial aspect which would normally be denied to the traditional craft type alternative.

Tube lights were manufactured by beating sheets of Aluminum in the old “Rhodesian” beaten Copper craft. These sheets were then rolled and electrified to provide attractive mood lighting throughout the Lodge.

Two solid wooden basins were commissioned for the Guest Loo and Room 2 – these were hand carved in perfect symmetry without the aid of machinery to determine the accuracy of cut.

Solid wooden Coffee Tables from Jacaranda and Yellowwood were similarly hand carved for the lounge area and Library. Placed on fine Stainless Steel legs to lift them to a practical height and give the impression of floating.
