When Annette Edna Mahu, co-owner of the Giraffe Ark Game Lodge embarked on furnishing the establishment, she sourced most of the furniture from Asia and the Middle East. She ended up saving money and got authentic items.

For the interior, she opted for Victorian-styled furniture which she got from Asia.
