Good artworks start with passion!
The BirdsConTour Art for Life project aims to inspire artists of all levels from all over the world and invites artists to show a picture of their artwork in this space.
The creative project Art for Life carries the message of promoting welfare and conservation through tourism to a far wider public audience than ever before through the communication medium of art.
Art is unquestionably one of the best options to spread the word of welfare and conservation and marketing tourism, particularly if one reaches beyond the borders.
The BirdsConTour Art for Life project supports artists worldwide, up till now in Namibia and Botswana.

Ombukushu Wooden Stick
Mr. Rector Tetuka, from the Hambukushu Tribe
Namushasha River Lodge, Zambezi/Caprivi Strip, Namibia
The Mbukushu people, living in the Kavango Region of the Okavango River in Namibia, are renowned for their high-quality woodcarvings. Animal figures, masks, wooden mugs, boxes and wooden sticks are carved out of the light wild teak (dolfhout) hardwood. A lot of culture and wildlife in the Caprivi/Zambezi Region makes a top traveling experience.
