Africa Fire Globe – La Hacienda

Africa Fire Globe 2.JPGWe wanted the amazing team of keepers from Blackpool Zoo to have a fantastic area to sit, chat and keep warm at the same time. The Africa Fire Globe from La Hacienda is no ordinary outdoor fire, it’s a stunning globe which not only provides a focal point, but has incredible cut out silhouettes, bringing the heart of the African continent into the garden.

Stay comfortably warm for hours into the night by bringing the warmth of Africa right to the centre of your garden or patio. Conjuring scenes of the Serengeti, an Elephant and its calf wander trunk in tail while giraffes mingle amongst the acacia trees.

The red glowing flames of a wood fire create amazing silhouettes, lighting the globe from inside the design jumps to life to resemble an impressive African sunset. If you’re looking for that ‘wow’ factor, look no further than these huge, majestic fire globes, constructed from 6mm thick oxidised steel with a sturdy cast iron stand.

The Africa Fire Globe retails at £1099 and is one of four beautiful designs from La Hacienda. La Hacienda are global experts in outdoor heating and garden décor. For more information, please go to
