Kenya Lemarti's Camp

Kenya Lemarti's Camp

, Nairobi,

Nairobi-based fashion designer Anna Trzebinski is also dabbling in the world of hotels, opening the tented Lemarti’s Camp near Kenya’s Laikipia Plateau in 2007. She stitches tents of locally loomed cotton in the same workshop where she creates beaded tunics and accessories inspired by indigenous Kenyan designs. Set on platforms above a river bend, the camp’s tents are furnished with tables and beds built with wood from dhow boats, and decorated with African-themed found objets d’art: crocodile skulls, elephant shoulder blades, beaded walking sticks and clubs. “For me, a tent should be the veil between you and Mother Africa, a sheer shield to protect but not in any way disconnect you from her presence. To be under canvas on a comfortable bed, with the smell of acacia blossoms —in the old safari days this was intoxicating enough, but now we have the ability to improve on the concept.”
