“An African safari is an educational experience, and yet so often the actual safari lodges themselves are more about the thread-count of the towels & the size of the rooms than about continuing the educational process of this unique travel experience. Safari lodge design of the future should look to convey the surrounding natural design & biological principles in a holistic, educational & experiential way… what if a safari lodge operated like a natural organism or community – how different would it look & feel?”
