Chongwe River – Zambia
This four bedroomed house is built around a frame of natural wood creating the organic shapes that were then plastered. Continuing the all natural theme, all furniture in the sitting are was carved from a single fallen winterthorn tree. Coloured pebbles taken from the river are used to decorate the ceilings.
The home is totally open to the environment with mosquito nets being the only separation between guest and nature at night. The open bathrooms all have waterfall showers and exquisite basins carved from wood and white marble by the Zambian artist Eddie Mumba. The deck, pool and view all speak for themselves!
The home is available for vacation rental for a maximum of four lucky couples :)
