Mokuruku Lodge, a private lodge in the Madikwe reserve, an hour from Pretoria is a combination of contemporary, urban living and subtle safari and bush references. The result is an ultra comfortable space, with plenty of pockets of privacy for the guests staying there and a sense of being at one with the beautiful bush surrounds.
“We wanted to create a space where guests would feel at home despite the exotic bush surrounds on their doorstep. We tried to reflect the external environment as much as possible by using a variety of different textures and an earthy palette of browns, sage greens and understated slate shades, and then we worked in some quirky touches and splashes of colour to take things away from the traditional safari look” says Krige who had much of the furniture custom-made according to her specifications”.
I appreciate how the Designers of this lodge have managed to balance an on trend style with subtle references to Modern Safari Chic! ( If I may call it so) The colour palette is soft and subtle. This would make perfect for an ideal getaway.
