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, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Eunice email@example.com if you are interested in any of the Rock Art Safaris featured.

Namibia Safaris – 2022
David Coulson is leading a Namibia Safari for Arcadia Expeditions in November 2022. The safari will include visits to some of Namibia’s most spectacular sites such as Twyfelfontein, a World Heritage Site. In addition to visiting exceptional rock art sites the group will visit the so-called “highest dunes in the world” at Sossusvlei, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Safaris to Morocco and Chad
David plans to lead a trip to southern Morocco towards the end of October 2022 and meanwhile all trips to northern Chad are on hold pending the present security issues in that part of the country, although it is hoped that the situation will soon be back to normal.
Morocco & Northern Chad Safaris 2023
David is hoping to organise a trip to Morocco in early 2023 as well as a possible trip to northern Chad in late or early 2023, subject to demand. Please let us know if you are interested.
Meanwhile, David may also take a group of interested people to Zimbabwe which has some of the most complex and interesting rock art in Africa, some of it dating back 30,000 years. Please let us know if you are interested.
