Let us plan and escort an economical bespoke painting or photography
safari, or any outdoor open-air activity course for your students, group or
workshop in Tanzania or Kenya with yourself as tutor, and within your
pupils/artists preferred budget...
Bring your own group! Should you manage to gather 7 travellers or more,
(they do not all have to paint or join the group activity) we can plan and
escort a Teaching Safari in Tanzania or Kenya to fit your vision and their
pockets, and your personal fees and travel costs will all be covered. A
special safari to locations where the group can take classes in the open,
absorbing the feel of Africa, not sitting at all times in a vehicle. We
therefore choose to stay in private game ranches and Maasai sanctuaries.
This means only brief visits to the famous game parks as the rules and
regulations prevent alighting from the car to sketch, paint or any other
activity, and not being out after 18.00 hours means no sunsets..
Depending on the location, type of accommodation and park fees if
applicable a 7-15 day safari can cost from anything from €1,000 up to €4,000
per person, and include a visit to fabulous sites like the Ngorongoro Crater
in Tanzania. Remember.....their friends and partners, non-students, will
have an exciting game viewing full-on safari, and, with different
experiences during the day campfire conversation will be all the more
interesting. Let us plan a safari for you, make an itinerary and budget
tailor-made to suit you and your group, meet you on arrival, take care of
their leisure and pleasure, and see to your departure after a memorable
Africa is a mystical yet challenging country. Once experienced one is
drawn back again and again. The people of the different tribes and countries
are as unalike as a Greek and a Norseman, but we lump them together as
Africans. Well, some of us are 'Europeans'! So why not. Remnants of the
pioneering spirit is still in evidence and many settlers from all over the
world are still there, working among their friends and fellow countrymen, in
this case, in East Africa. Big game is what the tourist comes to see. Yet
there is another aspect. Today's traveller is discerning and needs more than
a game-viewing jaunt in a 4WD, and this we can offer you.
There are tutors all over the world, teaching courses in some of these
subjects to people who would like to travel and learn or practice at the
same time. For you and for them we can arrange a safari to suit your style
Painting. Drawing. Nature. Literature. Film. Photography. That's our metier.
Yours may be different, yet overlapping. Spiritualism. Poetry. Singing.
Transcendental Meditation with a holistic effect. Music. Dancing. Writing. .
. Whatever, there's a place for everyone.
A Yoga Safari.
Teach Yoga to your group in magnificent settings whilst enjoying the
excitement of seeing the wild animals in their habitat. There are riverside
platforms near the mountains. Rocky plateaus overlooking vast expanses of
wilderness. White, white sands on the beaches and in Zanzibar. In the
savannah a tarpaulin will be laid in a cleared area in the shade of a acacia
trees and staff will provide chilled water and other refreshments.
The Painting Safari.
This is our favourite. Very peaceful, and as close to the people, the earth
and the animals as we can get.
A note from BJ. With my experience as a film producer and designer the light
and locations of Tanzania are an open book. Bring your students on a safari
where they are not cooped up in a car and brought back in the lodge by six.
Where my experience at getting close to the wild animals really counts.
Where my knowledge of the people and the language gains access. Where if
needed, I can obtain a permit take pictures or even to video.
