Birkenhead House

A diary of summer memories was the inspiration for this luxurious creation. Imagine yourself in picturesque Walker Bay; the world’s finest whale watching capital, surrounded by the rugged cliffs and Tolkien-inspired scenery at the southern-most edge of the African continent. Capturing the spirit and warmth of a sunkissed Mediterranean village with rich Garden Route flora and champagne sea breeze: This is the laidback charm of Birkenhead House.

BISATE LODGE

“I shall never forget my first encounter with gorillas. Sound preceded sight. Odor preceded sound. The air was suddenly rent by a high-pitched series of screams followed by the rhythmic chestbeats of a Great Silverback male obscured by what seemed an impenetrable wall of vegetation.”

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
