Hoedspruit Big 5 Reserve

Nancy Designs transformed a charming lodge in a Big 5 reserve near Hoedspruit, adhering to strict size and thatch roof regulations. Collaborating with Architect Henk and Ronnie, the main contractor, we created a 4-bedroom sanctuary with unique touches. Each room, named after its fabric source, offers privacy and comfort. Overcoming the darkness of thatch, we enhanced natural light with sanded poles, gold spazio spotlights, and glass gables. The open-plan living area exudes safari style, with stone-edged kitchen, Block and Chisel-inspired décor, and a blend of eclectic furniture. Art by Marina Walsh, Patricia Wade, Clive Walker, and Audrey Rudnick adds a personal touch. Sustainability features include solar and gas installations to combat load shedding.
