NATIVE VISIONS GALLERY RESUMES AMAZING SUMMER AFRICAN SAFARIS; 2021 TRIPS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT, NOW BOOKING FOR 2022
Native Visions Gallery, a wildlife and nature art gallery located on Fifth Avenue South, announced that it is resuming its professionally guided African safaris during the summer months. Led by guides who were born and raised in Africa, these personalized tours offer an amazing experience into African wildlife, culture and arts.
Located at 737 Fifth Ave. S., Native Visions Gallery features paintings, sculpture, glass, bronze and giclee prints by some of the world’s finest wildlife and nature artists. The gallery expanded into tours of Southern and East Africa about five years ago as a way for art collectors and enthusiasts to learn more about their art and connect with the continent.
“The ‘Call of Africa Safaris’ are designed so clients can get to know the artists intimately while exploring some of the most amazing raw nature for an experience you would not normally get with a commercial type of safari,” said Ross Parker, a fourth generation African and owner of Native Visions Gallery. “Due to COVID-19, we unfortunately had to cancel these tours. We have sold out this year and are now booking trips for 2022.”
Each African bound safari is crafted with an emphasis on uniqueness of landscape, diversity of game, un-choreographed and authentic cultural opportunities along with overall variety of experience. Accommodations are carefully handpicked for the best in each category, from truly deluxe to charmingly rustic bush camps. Among the regions are Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda.
“The passion that Ross has for the African land, its people and wildlife shows in the uniqueness and quality of artwork featured at Native Visions Gallery,” said Bruce Barone, Jr., executive director for the Fifth Avenue South BID. “Their location on Fifth Avenue adds to our reputation as a premier arts destination where visitors can shop, dine and visit galleries throughout the day and into the evening most any day of the week.”
Native Visions’ Naples Art Gallery is currently open Monday and Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Wednesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Featuring more than 220 businesses, including high-end shops, world-class dining, unique boutiques and galleries, and exciting entertainment options, Fifth Avenue South is the vibrant heart of Naples. For further information, visit www.FifthAvenueSouth.com.
