Get Set! Bid! Win a Safari to Kenya!
Arte for Elephants is thrilled to announce our first ever online auction beginning
Thursday June 3 at 12PM PST.
Get those computer fingers ready! Arte for Elephants is gearing up for our first ever online safari auction. Benefitting the Fisi Camp Wildlife Guardians of the Masai Mara!
Even as the pandemic levels off in huge parts of the world, the economic impact is still being felt acutely by local populations reliant on tourism. Despite Kenya having very low COVID numbers, for local Masai, the lack of visitors has created extreme financial hardship.
Arte for Elephants has teamed with Fisi
Camp and acclaimed photographer Gren Sowerby to continue their vital, food assistance program that is providing maize to thousands of families who live, work and go to school near Fisi Camp. For generations the local Masai have lived side by side with iconic species such as Elephant, Lion, Leopard. Wildlife and the lives of these communities are dependent upon each other. To ensure the continued success of one, you must support the other.
Anyone who has a dream safari to Kenya on their bucket list should JUMP at this chance to score an all inclusive 9D safari for a starting bid of $1500 USD! 100% of all monies collected will go towards the food assistance program.
Look at what you get!
