Design inspired by Africa's vibrant colours

Rishilé, meaning ‘sunrise’, will be a low-impact camp celebrating the tempos, colours, flavours, and rhythms of a vibrant, modern Africa. Organically designed to emulate the Ntsiri Riverbed on which the camp is set, Rishilé Camp will consist of 9 tented suites, the main lodge area with pool, as well as spaces to connect. With interiors by owner Nina Scott and Don Scott’s creative camp layout, modern touches complement traditional materials.

This is by far the best snapshot of all you need to know across our hotels, lodges, jungle discoveries and island escapes. Please save the environment and do not print.

São Tomé and Príncipe

Príncipe is an adventure. A tiny island topped by a canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, join us to discover this magnificent lost world, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkelling, fishing and birdwatching.

As the smaller, northern major island of the country of São Tomé and Príncipe lying off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, Príncipe has an area of 136 square kilometres (53 sq mi) and a population of approximately 7,000. The island is a heavily eroded volcano speculated to be over three million years old. Here you will discover a place that time forgot and where you feel you have stepped off the edge of the world. It is distinctively West African with a very strong Portuguese influence and this gives it a rhythm of its own which sets it apart from any experiences in East and Southern African.

Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge

This founding lodge features a classic-contemporary style of simple elegance that embraces the lodge's splendid setting high up on a steep bank overlooking the Great Fish River. The colour scheme comprises a calm and natural palette of earthy tones, from khaki browns to charcoal greys. Pewter and glass add an effortless yet understated glamour to the furnishings; artefacts such as ostrich eggshells, hides and horns create subtle points of interest and relevance to the lodge's surrounds, whilst natural linens and plenty of texture preserve its simple but sophisticated atmosphere. Stone walls, thatch roofs and long wooden walkways bring natural materials into the interiors, blurring the distinction between inside and outside.

The nine luxurious suites have been designed to take full advantage of the spectacular scenery. Floor-to-ceiling framed glass doors fold back to reveal an uninterrupted wilderness, and the en-suite bathrooms, complete with bath as well as indoor and outdoor showers, separate loo and twin basins offer unmatched views over the sweeping landscape beyond. Keep cool with overheadfans and air conditioning, and enjoy a spacious thatched veranda and private plunge pool with terrace in every suite.

Delicious African-inspired meals are served on private decks, in the candlelit dining room, or in the cosy boma under a magnificent starlit sky. Rugged natural materials like rock, stone and thatch combine with soft-light lanterns, deep overstuffed sofas featuring clean contemporary lines and natural linens with plenty of texture to provide a simple but sophisticated atmosphere, inviting guests to linger and chat in friendly, tranquil spaces.
