Rock Art Safaris

TARA regularly organises safaris in support of its mission into African rock art areas, also known for their spectacular landscapes, rich wildlife and nomadic people. We have previously led safaris to Egypt, Niger, Chad, Morocco, Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.

The safaris we offer can be broadly divided into customised safaris which are tailored to the needs of specific individuals or groups, and survey expeditions where individuals have the opportunity of accompanying a TARA survey team to a specific country or region. Customised safaris are also sometimes organised through TARA’s safari partner, Royal African Safaris.

See the full range of upcoming rock art safaris below and contact us through David Coulson,, or Eunice if you are interested in any of the Rock Art Safaris featured.
