Klappentext: "Southern African game
lodges and bush camps have won international acclaim for their standards of excellence in terms of
accommodation, cuisine and an all-round wildlife experience. Their establishment within the context of
southern Africa's wildlife areas has demanded enormous sensitivity towards these environments and their
inhabitants, and a subservience to the natural order which prevails in these places. The emerging
architecture and interiors of these camps and lodges reflect a style of living that is uncomplicated and
relaxed, and elemental in its approach to colour, patterns and textures, evoking the character and essence
of Africa. From tented and tree-house camps to thatched bungalows and luxurious lodges, elegance, simplicity
and vitality prevail, born out of a respect for their natural bushveld setting. Simply Safari
features the most appealing examples of these distinctive retreats and will provide decorating inspiration
for contemporary home owners and game-farm owners alike."

Klappentext: "Along the palm-fringed
beaches of Kenya and Tanzania, bustling stone towns and palace ruins tell of the Swahili civilisation that
prospered and flourished on the East African coast so many centuries ago. Home to sultans made rich by
slaves, ivory and spices, traders who voyaged across the Indian Ocean to make their fortunes and explorers
who set off from the edge of Africa deep into the interior, the Swahili Coast developed a unique aesthetic,
evident in both its interior decor and architectural features. Although Swahili design is traditionally
characterized by a blend of Arabian, Bantu African and Indian influences, its expression forms a unified and
coherent style. Inside, we examine classical and contemporary expressions of Swahili style, from the
beautifully restored town houses of Lamu and Zanzibar's stone towns to rustic beach retreats secluded along
stretches of deserted sand. In Swahili Style, we examine the most exclusive properties along the East
African coast, from elegant hotels and private villas to restored stone houses and eco-friendly beach
hideaways. From the northern tip of the Lamu Archipelago to the southern coconut groves of Mafia Island, Swahili
Style explores the properties that epitomize the region's unique aesthetic, discovering the enduring
character of its architecture and design."
Klappentext: "Zambia - Safari in
Style combines the aspirational and inspirational elements of enticing travel experiences, embracing the
wildlife, landscapes, architecture, décor and cuisine of some 30 prime lodges and bush camps in Zambia. On
a journey that starts in the less-travelled grassy plains of Western Zambia, writer and photographer David
Rogers wends his way along the Zambezi River to Victoria Falls, enjoying the exciting activities on offer at
this great wonder of the world. He then heads eastwards into the Lower Zambezi National Park and up the
southernmost limits of the Rift Valley through South and North Luangwa national parks. He searches Kasanka National Park for
sitatunga and the Bangweulu swamplands for shoebill storks before paddling by canoe into the heart of Kafue
National Park. On the way, Rogers meets and talks with the personalities who own and run tourist
establishments, from traditional bush camps to the avantgarde. Some present the ultimate in comfort and
luxury whereas others immerse guests in a more rustic atmosphere. In the end, it is the individual ambience
of each lodge that has guided him, in consultation with the editors and travel consultants of the
award-winning Africa Geographic magazine,
in a selection that reflects the unique, intimate destinations featured in Zambia - Safari in Style."

Klappentext: "The sensual beauty of
the islands of Zanzibar has always been a well-kept secret among the world's travellers, artists and
epicures. For years, the names of its serene beach retreats and fascinating townhouses were passed around
between those in the know as THE places to come for relaxation, inspiration and a revival of the spirit. Zanzibar
Style explores the themes that have inspired the island's architecture and interior design - the Swahili
civilisation, the Indian sub-continent, the coming of the Omani sultans, European colonialism and the
colours and forms of Africa's natural environment. Everyday life in Zanzibar is a riot of colour, texture
and light. Walking around Stone Town or strolling on the beach, the visitor's eye is constantly caught by
fascinating details - a shady courtyard glimpsed through a window cut in a brass-studded door, or a Swahili
proverb printed along the bottom of a lady's colourful khanga. Zanzibar Style celebrates the natural
style of the island's inhabitants, their crafts, textiles and furniture, and examines the unique objets
d'art hidden in the nooks and crannies of hotels and private houses."
