Tanzania Safari Lodge
Linda Willms, a resident of Tanzania, East Africa,
purchased a property at Karatu, near the Ngorongoro
crater and the Serengeti. The site crests a hill and has 360
degree views including the rift valley and the slopes
of Ngorongoro. Karl, his brother Jim, and Dai Ona
travelled to the site in 2011 to investigate building
logistics and materials availability. It is hoped that
the timbers will be supplied and milled by Daizen
joinery and container-shipped to Tanzania. It is
anticipated that local labour will be involved and
foundations and walls will be rammed earth brick,
manufactured on site.
The construction of the lodge depicted in this sketch
is tentatively scheduled for early 2013.
