"After more than a year of travel deprivation, Safari Style draws the heart, mind and eye away from the relentless grim reality of the pandemic, sending us on a journey back to the manifold loveliness of Africa." - House & Garden
Safari Style unveils Africa’s new generation of camps and lodges in a lavish volume of spectacular photographs. The book captures the astonishing settings and design ingenuity of the 21st century safari destination - from the classic lodges of Kenya to the indulgent resorts of South Africa and the inspired eco-design of Rwanda’s new camps and lodges. Handpicked for their outstanding locations in wildlife enclaves, and for their distinctly regional architecture and interiors, these special properties represent the ultimate African encounter. Drawing on the early 20th-century tradition of the safari, they have reinvigorated the experience with access to parts of Africa previously out of bounds, notably Rwanda, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. These new camps and lodges reinvent the safari and represent a fresh approach to wildlife conservation involving local populations.
