You may have been on safari, but have you ever been on an art safari? Well, here it is! Zebra Hills Safari Lodge is a Big 5 destination set in the heart of South Africa’s East Coast. The Zululand Rhino Reserve is a 23 000 hectare sanctuary to a plethora of wildlife and bird species, covering landscapes of rocky outcrop to riverine forest – the perfect destination for your art safari!
What better time and place to double up on a luxury safari holiday and trying a new experience. An extraordinary lodge experience in the heart of Africa’s wilderness, what more could you ask for?
