Sun drenched days, unique design elements, a curious play on light and shadow and unequivocal hospitality and luxury – that is how we would describe the “Saseka lifestyle”. From first arriving at this brand new Thornybush Collection lodge and stepping through its enormous doors, we were mesmerised by the unique sense of modern nostalgia that architects and interior designers Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens have injected into the space. The use of light and infrastructure to create their whimsical “ceiling for all seasons” in the main area was a stroke of genius and gently mimics the fall of sunlight through a tree canopy. Every design element in the lodge was chosen with great care and the shades of ivory, sage, dark greens and unexpected soft touches of pink, reflects the fauna and flora that can be found around the lodge.
The tented suites are nestled on the banks of the Monwana River. We discovered an outdoor shower, a bath overlooking the Bushveld, a private plunge pool complete with sun loungers and woven pool towels, and a romantic bed, mysteriously shrouded in a light grey mosquito net, draped in gentle folds around the corners.
