CHALLENGE The design challenge was to create a unique and exclusive sustainable destination consisting of luxury safari lodges in various locations throughout the private Grumeti Game Reserve.
SOLUTION A hilltop lodge was designed in the style of an East African colonial manor home with awe-inspiring views over the Serengeti plains. The resort was positioned on the renowned migratory route traversed annually by more than a million wildebeest and home to large herds of resident game that give incredible game viewing all year round. The lodge can accommodate up to 30 people, with one to four bed suites arranged across the seven cottages, each with their own infinity pool and private gardens.
SIZE 120,000 hectares (297,000 acres) Seven free-standing cottages: six suites, and one luxury villa
AMENITIES Lounges; library; wine room; billiard's room; bar; dining room; retail shop; spa; sport's pavilion including archery, tennis pavilion and courts; equestrian centre; verandas with views over the Serengeti plains
