Accompanied by a local artist, participants enjoy a 360 degree view of the untouched land of the Northern Frontier. Popular spots for artistic inspiration include the winding Ewaso Nyiro, a river lined with Fever Trees and sand; and the top of Penny’s rock with its views of an expansive arid landscape and looming mountains in the distance.
Itineraries are flexible. Artists can select charcoals or watercolors, and depart anytime from early morning to sundown, in order to create art during the perfect light position for the work they are creating.
Joy’s Camp Art Safari is inspired by the site’s previous levitra online coupons artist, Joy Adamson. Known from the best-selling book “Born Free,” Adamson made history when she helped reintroduce a domestic lion, Elsa, to the wild for the first time. After Adamson moved to the area where Joy’s Camp is located, she documented the plants and people of Kenya through her drawings.
Joy’s Camp features 10 chic canvas bedrooms overlooking a natural spring. Each tent is uniquely decorated with handmade glass and vibrant fabrics from the local nomadic tribes, and each has a private veranda, ideal for game viewing. Joy’s Camp is one of ten properties in Kenya with a Gold eco-rating, the highest level of environmental responsibility.
Art Safari rates start from $350 per person sharing per night, and include meals, game drives, bush walks, bush breakfasts, sundowners, local airstrip transfers and limited laundry.
