Ribola Art Route Rising

This is a poignant and deeply moving short documentary telling the story of the devastating impact of Coronavirus on the artists of the Ribola Art Route. This route is the beating heart at the centre of our eco-cultural Safaris and one of the highlights for our guests. There is a link to the film at the end of this blog. Alexandra features in the film as do some of our past guests!

The Ribola Art Route

Is an association of artists who bring the cultural richness of their Venda and Tsonga traditions to life through incredible works made of wood, of clay, of fabric, of metal. It is a story of creativity – of innovation – of resilience. A story juxtaposing ancient and modern. A story of using technology to showcase and bring these incredible artworks, produced in the most humbling of surroundings, to you wherever you are in the world. We are delighted to be a part of this project and journey, led by Travelling Circus and Love Limpopo supported by a commission from the South Africa Department of Sports, Art and Culture.
