You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions. by Isak Dinesen, Out of Africa
Inspired by nature, the architectural concept interprets the area’s ancient huts blending in the landscape. Pedestrian paths connect the luxury guest villas in an island surrounded by rapids of the Longa River. In terms of functional distribution the social area is located in the west and highest part of the site while the bungalows are arranged at a lower level along the river.
