Art Safari creative adventures in Africa – Zambia



Large grey and unmistakable

12 days in South Luangwa National Park

+ optional extensions to Victoria Falls or Lake Malawi

10 to 21 October 2016

With Mary-Anne Bartlett

A wonderful opportunity to study elephants and other animals at leisure on a relaxing residential course in South Luangwa National Park. We will spend time in the national park and also work up sketches back at our base on the banks of the great Luangwa River. Beware – animals tend to wander through at any time of day. 

South Luangwa is the most impressive of National Parks, with incredible wildlife populations and continually enthralling sightings.

Dry and hot, this is an exceptional time to see Africa in the build-up before the rains – dramatic skies and the whole majesty of the animal kingdom before us.  

Birding is always excellent here.  Big cats proliferate.  Large prides of lions are now so familiar to us that we know each matriarch and each male’s family history and can chart family groups and events.  Leopard sightings are frequent, and we often see leopards by day lounging in trees.

Our activities include day and night game drives, a textile workshop at Tribal Textiles (brilliant fun, bring back a cushion you’ve designed and painted!) and a visit to a local village.  

Extending the tour, we also spend time deep in the bush, taking our sketchbooks on guided walks, and enjoying the delicious isolation of this animal rich area.

  • 12 days on the Luangwa River, South Luangwa National Park, including 8 nights at Thornicroft Lodge and 3 nights at an exclusive and beautiful remote Bush Camp
