Required Reading: The New Safari

Issue 68 · Africana · April 17, 2013

Essential reading for admirers of contemporary African design: "The New Safari" offers a look at landscapes, lodge architecture, and interior designs of more than a dozen safari camps that fuse "high-end architecture with traditional low-tech African craft."

The New Safari by Mandy Allen is $36.54 from Amazon.
