Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
We've searched far and wide, through Africa's deserts and jungles, cities and wildlife reserves, islands and mountains, to uncover the continent's most inspirational dwellings; our goal was to find the kind of interiors that defy description, and we think the results will definitely leave you speechless. Nestled within these pages you'll find lush modern homes mingling with mud huts, funky artists' studios, elegant lodges, minimalist houses, ornate traditional homes, townships and much more-all lovingly built and decorated with sensitivity, creativity, craftsmanship, individuality, and sensuality. Inside Africa captures the beauty and diversity of African living. Countries featured: Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Reunion, Senegal, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo, and Tunisia.
