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.

Morocco 2023
In September 2023 David Coulson took a group of intrepid travelers from Marrakech over the Atlas Mountains to Ouarzazate and on through the Atlas foothills visiting sites he had first recorded in the late 1990s. They made their way south visiting new sites south of Zagora and experienced the September earthquake on their way back to Marrakech. Luckily the little hotel they were staying in did not collapse.
