African Bush Camps Thorntree River Lodge

Our brief was to create a new Zambezi experience for the African Bush Camp guests. We wanted to present the classic river cabins in a new way inspired by the old explorer boats plying African rivers and lakes. The river itself was a huge source of inspiration and we let it dictate the moody blue palette.

We also wanted to layer interesting textures, Zambian artefacts, bespoke and vintage furniture to give the guests the ultimate feeling of being at home.

Winters are very cold and summers are very hot so we had to design accordingly, so the rooms can open up completely and also can become a cocoon like space in the colder months.  It was our intent for the guests to make their rooms their universe and never have to leave.
