The Safari Adventure is an artful exhibition featuring welded life-sized scrap metal sculptures of African animals illustrating the balance between nature and humanity in a beautiful, inspirational setting.
It explores animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and mankind’s relationship with nature. The universal story of this show is education, conservation and an exhilarating, close-up examination of the beauty of the world’s best beloved animals using reclaimed materials discarded from the car industry, and other sources, thus it beats environmental pollution as well.
The Safari Adventure is a contemporary art exhibition featuring welded life-sized metal sculptures of African animals crafted by contemporary artists in Kenya.
The Exhibition brings an experience of Africa Safari, inspired by the Masai Mara National Park in Africa, to a global audience and conveys a passion for Africa, its people and its wildlife.
It is designed to illustrate the balance between nature and humanity in a beautiful, inspirational setting. It explores animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and mankind’s relationship with nature. The universal story of this show is about the beauty of the world’s best beloved animals and the conservation of this wildlife.
The project celebrates the days when elephants, monkeys or crocodiles roamed the tropical oasis in the early 1900s and takes the audience down a memory lane, to a time when animals actually roamed in the gardens and around humans in the lands of Africa.
Sustainability is at the heart of the exhibition, with all the artworks in Safari Adventure made with reclaimed materials discarded from the car industry, and other sources.
The exhibition is perfect for families, down to even the smallest children for enjoyment. It is suited for both indoor and outdoor displays.

The universal story of this show is education, conservation and an exhilarating, close-up examination of the beauty of the world's best beloved animals.
Different species of animals have special relationships with each other; animals have connections with their families just like we do.
And of course, people have a connection with nature. We hope that you can look at "Safari Adventure" travel exhibition and appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful.

IJIT description: "A community project".
Our metal art is designed and produced by our skilled metal workers in Kenya.
We bring together unemployed local artisans with great talent in art work from poor backgrounds to build art exhibits aesthetically powerful to educate a global audience and spark positive changes. We provide steady income to low-income Kenyans.
The Collection stems from our passion for Africa, its people and its wildlife. Each sculpture is hand crafted from re-cycled metal and may take many weeks to complete.
