Luxury Game Lodge in the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve - Barrydale, Western Cape
2009
 

Extract from: BUSINESS DAY, Wanted 01 Nov 2009 Page 50
"Enjoy the Silence" by Gary Cotterall

"The architecture of Gondwana Lodge is restrained, with an almost Zen-like quality. Its thatched roof and thick walls keep the inside cool during the heat of the day. The lofty interiors of the public areas are more Cape barn than traditional Karoo dwelling, but their exposed rafters and thatch add a sense of grandeur to the space. The crisp white walls and screed floors are offset by splashes of colour in the furnishings that reflect the intense palette of the Karoo landscape: the bright magentas and yellows of the succulent vygies in spring, the olive- and yellow-greens of spiky shrubs, and the earthy hues of rock and gravel."
