Artist Bill Stout sent us a copy of Architectural Digest for March, 2008, with an interesting article entitled "Greystoke Mahale," the name of a new beach resort at Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania described as “the nearest thing to paradise” by the designers.
It was named after Tarzan's English title, coupled with the nearby mountain range of Mahale. The resort consists of six "bandas" or traditional thatched huts of central Africa. The magazine includes ten color photos of Greystoke Mahale by Tim Beddow, including the main building pictured below which serves as a mess hall.
The entire article, along with the color photographs, can be viewed:
