Summary

Summary

One of the most breathtaking realms of the world becomes an inspiration for design in this visual survey of the many bold styles of the African safari camp. The seduction of mosquito netting undulating in the wind, the opulence of rich oriental rugs on a lush savanna, the classic civility of silver antiques, and the nostalgia of a wardrobe trunk packed with khaki, silk, and lace are just some of the defining elements of the safari style. Bibi Jordan's radiant photographs so powerfully evoke the tawny continent that one can almost hear the grass rustling and the lion roaring.

Excerpts

Excerpts

Safari is a word packed with romance and adventure, conjuring up images of migrating herds and snow-capped mountains; sounds of thundering waterfalls and invisible predators; smells of campfires and canvas; feelings of camaraderie and fear. Safari. It's a word that always leads to one destination: Africa, shrouded with mystery and magic, cradle of civilization and of mankind, that powerful mother-continent fo us all.
