Stunning photographic volume showcases the interior décor of Africa’s foremost luxury and eco-safari lodges—and celebrates the role that photographic safaris have played in preserving threatened species and wilderness areas.
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 eco-safari destination in seven countries—from the classic lodges of Kenya to the indulgent resorts of South Africa and the inspired eco-designed camps of Rwanda.
Handpicked for their outstanding locations in wildlife enclaves, distinctly regional architecture and interiors, and their essential focus on sustainability and conservation, 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.
