As part of finding ways to grow our audiences we are putting our shows on different platform. Recently YouTube and in the near future we will also be making use of Facebook LIVE.
Tonight’s Fireside Chat is a first experiment in that regard. Based on the outcomes we will decide how to proceed in future to make sure we find the right balance between providing our existing and loyal audience with great content and finding new audiences.
One of the conditions of using FB LIVE is that content broadcast on there must be exclusive and can thus not be broadcast elsewhere at the same time. We do realise not everyone has a Facebook account and this might cause some to not be able to watch it. However, the #safariLIVE page on Facebook is public and can be viewed without being a member of or logging onto Facebook at this link:
We will also upload the FSC to the SafariLIVE page on YouTube shortly after it has been broadcast for those who missed it.
We apologise for any inconvenience but hope we can count on your support as we work on sharing the #safariLIVE experience with larger audiences.
iPad does not have "Flash" software so video did not play. YouTube is the best platform. Why fix something that is not broken ? Stay with how you are doing it. Otherwise you will have a limited audience
Never could find it.

Try different format, FSC just did not work tonight at least for me and what I read from others. I always watch from safariLive and have never had issues like which occurred tonight. Thank you to entire cast and crew of safari drives. Love to all of you and my fellow safarians.
Wrap up chat today was stop & go live. But the vid posted on f.b. was fine, just got cut off too soon. A lot of non face book people were mad. Thanks for trying new things to turn people on to WE. I love having the guides chat to us live & say our names. keep up the good work.
Thanks for trying new things to turn more people on to WE. It was very hard to watch, as it was stop & go but they were not taking our questions live today so no problem. And watching the video back after live, there were no break up or stop & go. Love you guys & love having my questions answered & my name said by them.
Totally disappointed. Breakups, delays, strange voices and cars in the background. What was shown was visually correct but not ready for prime time yet. Sorry.
fingers crossed that this will improve. would be great to watch it on my phone but live video doesn`t work for me yet
