Walking with Art

Stand on this beautiful sand bank at the Kosi Bay river mouth and with the expert guidance of land artist Simon Max Bannister and conservationist Galeo Saintz, be part of creating something unique and once-off with nature. 

We’ve all done it, strolled along the beach or a path collecting bits of wood, shells or stones. Now we invite you to come and play with those wild elements while learning about ecology of place and the creative stimulating practice of land art. On the warm waters of Kosi Bay along the wild northeast coastline of South Africa, a diverse landscape of natural beauty awaits. Join a guided ecological and creative experience over three days: Explore the coastal dunes, dense forests, and lakes Sleep under the stars Create individual and collective artworks with personal guidance Discover deserted beaches Learn about the ecology of Kosi Bay Get some quiet solitude Enjoy the little things Conservationist Galeo Saintz and land artist Simon Max Bannister, have created an outdoor adventure that brings people closer to the experience of creating land art by walking, learning and having fun. Bringing awareness to your individual way of seeing and responding to the environment lets you discover nature in a whole new way. The guided experience affords deep immersion into ecology and the unfolding patterns of nature.. Kosi Bay offers wildlife, dense coastal forest, coastal dunes, sandy beaches, estuarine lakes and a host of wildlife as it is part of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park. Using only our hands as tools and what we sensitively gather from the ground, we practice a very pure form of land art that nurtures creativity and lateral thinking. It leaves a delicate trace of our human understanding in the wilderness, where it can decay, grow, move and transform.
