African Decor Wood Headrests Phases Africa

Headrest from the Dinka people of South Sudan
“A young man is entitled to begin wearing the distinctive coiffure that marks him as an adult only after he is initiated. As each member of the age set rises through the hierarchical society, changes in jewellery, hairstyle and feather decorations for the hair often mark each promotion. The use of headrests is often associated with this advancement and the headrests themselves become status symbols. Whether this pattern is true for the Shilluk and Dinka is unknown, but it certainly seems likely as Shilluk men still wear elaborate coiffures, and among the Dinka headrests/stools are primarily used by older men (Jeremy Coote, personal communication). The Dinka multi-purpose headrests/stools also provide a convenient place to sit as it is not considered proper for elderly men to sit directly on the ground”.  William Dewey – Africa The Art of a Continent

African Wall Decor│Wooden Plank Masks

African wooden plank masks, as wall art, is an ideal home decorating idea, in either a contemporary or traditional home or office. Furthermore, African masks are also the single most influential piece of African Art as well as, the most recognized as such, all over the world.  The masks we are featuring today are all hand carved from wood by Africa’s indigenous people. Also the mask invariably goes hand-in-hand with the apropos attire that are worn in these Celebrations.  As a result these African tribal masks are either celebratory in nature: giving thanks for the great harvest.  Spiritual: by initiating transformation or calling on the spirit for guidance or to thank them. And last but not least,  religious in nature.

COVER PAGE:

The wooden masks featured on this post cover page are from – Kenya’s Giryama people that hand carve these flat wooden post, to serve as tombstones called Kikangu.  Furthermore, the grave markers have several functions; representing the Giryama’s way of life as well as, the ancestor’s spirits are honored by erecting these post.  As a result, these markers also serves as conduit between the ancestral realm and the land of the living.

The abstract and geometric forms and carved patterns of Kikangu serve as a roadmap representation of the spirit. The gravestone marker is also a tribute and blueprint of the deceased time on earth.

Interiors African Safari Lodges

Londolozi is a world renowned private safari loge, founded in South Africa in the mid- 70’s.  Most noteworthy, the stunning interior design of this 5* lodge has been partly responsible for having received countless international “best hotel” awards.  Furthermore, the author has first hand experience having had the privilege to observing the excellent conservation practices that were implemented by John and Dave Varty in the late 70’s.   Lodolozi has stood the test of time as it is still considered one of Africa’s finest luxurious game lodges.

“During my long walk to freedom, I had the rare privilege to visit Londolozi. There I saw people of all races living in harmony amidst the beauty that Mother Nature offers. Londolozi represents a model of the dream I cherish for the future of nature preservation in our country– Nelson Mandela
Londolozi is situated on the Sand River in the very heart of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. This reserve in turn forms part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a vast and growing area, currently covering 6 million acres and incorporating the famous Kruger National Park.

The root of the word Londolozi is the Zulu word for protect and means “protector of all living things” – an ambitious conservation ethic that Londolozi embraces in its sensitivity to the natural world. The reserve is internationally recognised for its far-sighted and progressive management of land and wildlife rehabilitation as well as productive community involvement.
There are 5 Camps at Londolozi.
Founders Camp: child friendly
Pioneer Camp: “It is perhaps the most exciting and adaptable camp we have ever built at Londolozi” – Dave Varty
Tree Camp:  does not accommodate children under the age of 16, unless guests book the camp exclusively.
Varty Camp: the symbolic heart and soul of Londolozi. The author of this blog stayed here in the late 70s – since then it has been completely remodeled. 
Private Granite Suites:  The only lodge of the 5 that we will feature in this post; for more information on the other camps follow the link at the end of this post.
The Private Granite Suites: offer an extraordinary experience for the discerning traveller who appreciates the finer details of an African safari. It can be booked individually or as a private camp for six Guests, making it ideal for honeymooning couples or small groups celebrating special occasions.  The Private Granite Suites do not accommodate children under the age of 16, unless guests book the camp exclusively.

Bold, inspiring materials mirror the extrusion of granite rocks that flank the camp while conveying the raw essence of Africa. A palette of silver, charcoal and elephant grey in a range of sumptuous materials creates an elegant and contemporary setting in each expansive suite. 
The emphasis is on space, light and privacy while blurring the barrier between inside and out. A seamless integration with nature is achieved with large doors and windows all opening directly onto the Sand River.  Each suite has a private, heated swimming pool.

Wildlife at Lodolozi:

Breeding herds of elephant and buffalo roam throughout the Londolozi area, while white rhino and lion concentrations are amongst the highest recorded on the African continent.
However, it is the truly remarkable relationship which has developed over three decades between wild free ranging leopards and ranger & trackers which makes Londolozi world famous. There is no disputing that viewing the leopards of Londolozi is one of life’s truly treasured experiences.
