For the true lover of travel, Africa just never gets old. Whether venturing into a new sanctuary or seeing the amazing wildlife in its natural habitat, there are always new discoveries. And perhaps the gem of African excursions is Kenya. The winning bidder of this remarkable Art Ball 2019 Form And Function live auction package will have a place of honor in his/her passport for this prize.
The trip for two starts with a three-night stay at Segera Retreat in Laikipia. This private 50,000-acre wildlife sanctuary is an award-winning eco-safari, as well as serving as a satellite of the Cape Town’s Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa.
Then it is off to the luxury safari lodge Angama Mara overlooking Africa’s famed Maasai Mara, where elephant families, buffalo, giraffe and hippos roam freely protected from poachers. Situated on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, it has been described as a lovely lodge floating between heaven and earth. During the three-night stay, there will be scheduled safaris into the Mara Triangle. To accommodate photographers wanting flawless pictures, the safaris take place in open game-viewing vehicles.
To complete the trip, Tropic Air’s helicopter will provide a scenic trip hovering over the countryside to 17,058-foot high Mt. Kenya.
And, of course, to have the perfect look for this “non-roughing-it” occasion, the winner and friends will meet Kenya designer Anna Trzebinski at Grange Hall for a trunk show.
