This house was initially meant for Chester Gieke, and some of you might have seen it in the Creators Feedback section. However, it is suited to this month's theme and I could spend more Simoleons on it

It is based on the typical residence you will stay in if you visit game reserves, hunting farms or the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Here is an example of the real thing:

(I also added 2 other example pics in the gallery).

Native to South Africa : the Arum Lily, which is for some reason called a Calla Lily elsewhere. They grow near and sometimes even in water, in groups, and is evergreen in the warmer parts of the country. A variety of native lilies also grows near water. All of them grow elsewhere as well.

Once in South Africa, you will seldom cook. You will use the BBQ (or, as we call it, have a Braai) for almost every meal, especially on holiday.

The units are nice inside. This one is tiny, it could house 2 Sims, but will be a good investment as a vacation home for a couple.

CC needed:
For The Arts Rug, by Simfused, I uploaded only the recolour, so please find the mesh :http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=524530

For the Calla lilies from theNinthWave - mesh is included.

I have the Ultimate Collection, so you will need all the expansion and stuff packs.
Do NOT remove any ground covers when uploading, I believe that it can crash your lot.

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs.
