Art Safari creative adventures in Africa – Kenya

First mix flamingo pink

The Great Rift Valley and the Massai Mara

20 – 31 August 2014

With Karen Pearson


An exploration in the colours of the Great Rift Valley followed by animal sketching at the height of the migration in the Masai Mara. Wonderful. In the plains of the Masai Mara, herds of wildebeest and huge numbers of zebra gather to cross the Mara Rivers, to the delight of lions and crocodiles. 

Kenya offers a magical mix of colour and diversity of landscape and wildlife.  We explore the great lakes of The Great Rift Valley and continue to have an extended stay in the Massai Mara to make the most of the big game as well as the big cats and their prey.     

Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru National Park are in one of the prettiest areas in Kenya , the cradle of mankind, with mountains behind the yellow fever trees, and a wealth of game.  In Nakuru there are frequent sightings of rhino and buffalo as well as leopard and lion.   

Nakuru is of course, a spectacular lake for flamingos which shimmer in pink, white and oranges over the shallow blue salt lake.

We continue to the Massai Mara for the full excitement of the wildebeest migration.  Big cats and predators are plenty in this area and make great subjects for our paintings.

This is a colour and adrenaline rush safari with luxurious evenings and nights in welcoming lodges where we feel totally at home. Our safari camps and lakeside cottages are small, personal, stylish and serve exquisite food. Cool, dry and blue skies, Kenya is a stunning country at any time of year, rich in culture, landscape, mountains, lakes and wildlife, but August/Sept is superb.
