The sanctuary was founded on the principle of conservation, and one of the most effective ways to evoke a sense of environmental responsibility is to show what stands to be lost.
Guests will have an opportunity to talk to guides that have journeyed – physically and metaphorically, incredible distances with these elephant, and learn about the individuals and the herd structures.
Guests will learn about the elephant as well as their history and how they came to be in our care as well as the threats facing elephant populations today, in an interesting and informative talk.
Guests then venture down to a waterhole and mud wallow where, under the shade of an enormous Mopane tree, they will find a chair and easel – each set up with a fresh sheet of paper.
Brightly coloured aprons and palettes with bright splotches of paint will also be handed out.
A private tutor is provided to guide guests through a painting workshop, using their sketch pads and brush to capture the moment.
Soon your white sheets of paper will be transformed into a canvas with a glorious blue sky, sunshine, yellow, brown or green grass and of course elephants.
Once finished, guests will go back to “The Wallow” for a delicious two course buffet lunch accompanied by a cold beverage rounding off a perfect morning’s experience. After lunch guests will be transferred back to their lodgings in Victoria Falls Town.
