Zarafa Dhow Suites

Following the authentic safari style of Zarafa camp, the Zarafa Dhow Suites are a stunning private villa with two adjoining master bedroom suites. The beige canvas tents evoke 1920s explorations in East African safari style, brought to life through use of Swahili craftsmanship: Intricately carved Lamu doors and palatial open spaces that house beautiful campaign furniture from the Kenyan and Zanzibari coast. Antique rugs and beautiful artifacts complement lush colors of rouge, leather and copper upon the natural tone of the tents. Designed to be taken up by a family or group of friends on exclusive charter, the Dhow Suites can accommodate 4 - 6 persons. The Dhow Suites are hosted privately by a team of professional staff and a private chef.

BISATE LODGE

“I shall never forget my first encounter with gorillas. Sound preceded sight. Odor preceded sound. The air was suddenly rent by a high-pitched series of screams followed by the rhythmic chestbeats of a Great Silverback male obscured by what seemed an impenetrable wall of vegetation.”

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
