No Hula Girls?????


Seriously, this is a great thread! I love safari and "dark continent" style!

I am big into the books of that era, "Green mansions", "Heart of darkness", "frontiers of enchantment: an artist's adventures in Africa" (by W.R. Leigh) and of course the original "Tarzan."

I see little difference between the intention of this style and that of Tiki. masks, bamboo, Jungles, exotic drums....it all ties in and give me a fake zebra rug anyday!

Now onto movies, "Mogambo" "hatari" and "african queen" (which Walt Disney loved so much he built a ride based on it)

Music...so much of Les Baxter is more pseudo-african style (not authentic african of course, but cinematic versions of hollywood Africa), like "tamboo"...

great thread! Let's see some pictures of bachelor pads done up jungle/Safari style!
