This project was filled with interesting encounters. We had lions camping outside the contractors accommodation, cheetahs running through the lodge and sending the electricians flying off their ladders. There was even a buffalo that decided to help rearrange the interior of the reception area.
The owners of the lodge put us up to the challenge. They asked us if we would re-design and decorate the entire lodge in time for their family and friends who would be staying there over Christmas that year. This gave us three months to gut, rebuild and decorate the entire lodge.
During this period we managed all facets of the project from building renovations to sinking boreholes when the water ran out, to organising lodge and kitchen staff training. This was done with great enthusiasm, even down to the final scurry when all of the contractors finished off their final pieces and quietly disappeared as the owners met us at the entrance to their new five star lodge.
