Our brief was to retain the feel of the existing lodge, using the existing footprint but give the camp a fresh contemporary feel. It still had to feel like tent but it had to be glamorous and have an updated look.

We used simple tents with wide overhangs for shaded outdoor living and added dramatic gum pole colonnades to create architectural interest and dappled light. We gave each room a private sala with a swinging bench for guests to take in the views across the delta. Canvas and leather panelled walls divide the spacious bathroom from the bedroom for privacy and soundproofing.

The tents are simple but well appointed. The finest quality bed linen is hand stitched referencing the traditional Botswana basket designs. The bronzed calabash bedside lamps are a nod to desert ecology- traditionally used in southern Africa for serving, drinking and storing liquids. The interiors are mid century Safari Style will blackened steel and brass elements. The feel is contemporary safari club.

The guest areas, shop and arrival will get a new updated look in the new year to complete the transformation.
