The Court of the Great Lakes, combines relaxation and calm, where you are encouraged to enjoy, stand in awe and appreciate Africa’s most treasured resource – water. This court is located on the eastern side of the centre, and inspiration here is taken from the Great Lakes of Africa. Lake Victoria is the second largest lake in the world, while Lake Tanganyika is the second deepest. The lakes inspire fishing and support amazing wildlife and bird life. The colours, materials and patterns of the Great Lakes Court are taken from the calming waters of the eastern coastline of Africa. The details echo the movement of water in the lakes and the sails of the fishing boats, which evoke an overall sense of calm.
