Safari a Swahili word, from the Arabic safara, meaning journeyThe safari is not just a holiday; it's a spiritual and physical journey, offering an opportunity to recharge, reconnect, and escape from the cerebral and virtual into the real, instinctive world.
Africa is still the continent of wanderers, but the lodge has become a destination in itself, rather than a camp along the way. The new safari aesthetic fuses high-end design with traditional African craft to create highly original, courageous and soulful architecture and interiors. This careful attention to detail also serves to highlight the unique character of the environment - and the importance of preserving it.
Safari Style Africa explores the most spectacular of these lodges, each one encapsulating the spirit of place, of Africa itself and its many faces, and providing a gateway into the wild beauty of its setting.
