Art Safari | Namibia

Spend fifteen days sketching “Rainbows in the Dunes”.  Wildlife, deserts, seascapes and landscapes are your subjects for the trip. If that’s not enough, you can extend your experience by three days to visit cheetahs. But don’t just pack your safari gear, bring your sketch pad and pencil in tow because this is a safari like none other!
