The experience of a wildlife safari is one you never forget. The sights and sounds stay with you long after you return home. I know this from my own experience leading my Zambia art safari. And I have many clients whose experience on safari led them to commission an animal sculpture. Nothing compares to the encounter of a wild animal in its natural environment. It’s a profoundly moving and enriching experience.
I’ve been leading art safaris with Wildlife Worldwide for a number of years now. We offer a truly unique experience for lovers of wildlife and art. We combine early morning and evening game drives with animal sculpture demonstrations and tuition. You will learn to observe, sketch and photograph the animals in the wild. This brings a whole new level of appreciation and understanding of your subjects. And during the day we will work on our own animal sculptures, all under my expert guidance and tuition.
I’m always impressed by the incredible progress my students are able to make when immersed in their art on a workshop for an extended period. I believe the combination of observing our subjects in the wild and simultaneously practising our art over consecutive days provides a uniquely intense and productive opportunity for artistic development. You will be amazed at what you can achieve working in this way.
Everyone involved with our art safaris, from the incredibly experienced team at Wildlife Worldwide to our highly knowledgeable Zambian drivers and guides, will work together to make this the trip of a lifetime. South Luangwa, where we will be based, provides some of the best wildlife viewing in all of Africa, offers incredible wildlife viewing, including leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, hippo and wild dog. Mfuwe Lodge, where we will stay, is one of the most extraordinary wildlife resorts in the world. Every day elephants wander into the lodge to feast on mango. They walk right through the lobby and past the deck where we will be working on our sculptures.
Of course, during successive lockdowns, we were unable to run our art safaris. 2022 therefore promises to be a very special opportunity to get back out into the wild and experience Africa’s astonishing wildlife at close quarters. At the time of writing, there are only a few places remaining on my 2022 Zambia Art Safari departing 12 November. Book now to avoid disappointment and secure your place.
