Safari – Eleven’s 8th Ideas and Design Competition

Eleven’s competition “Safari: Zimbabwe 2017” calls on creatives from all around the world to design innovative concepts for a super sensory safari lodge in the heart of Matobo National Park.

In Swahili, the word “safari” means journey, and this is exactly where Eleven wants to take you through their competition: a journey into the romance and adventure of the wild, into the customs, local rituals and the beating heart of Africa.

The outcome of this journey? A new super sensory safari lodge concept the likes of which the world has never seen before, nestled in the heart of Matobo’s granite rock formations and mysterious ancient rock paintings.

Competition awards include:

  • Winner: 2 safari places (per team) onto African Bush Camps’ (9-15) April or (8-14) June 2018 Super Sensory Safari worth $8,000 USD (excluding international flights to/from Zimbabwe).
  • Runner-Up: £400 and a new limited edition Safari Book
  • 6x Honorable Mentions
  • People’s Choice Award (selected by general public voting online): £100 and 
African Bush Camps’ new limited edition Safari Book

Eleven and their partners African Bush Camps are looking for a super sensory safari lodge, the first one in the world, which uses design as a pivotal part of the experience. How can architecture become a mechanism for experiencing the adventure, magic and romance of a safari in Matobo? You decide.

Eleven welcomes professionals and/or students to join in. Participation is possible individually or in a team of up to two people.
