Big Cat Week has brought many into the safariLIVE fold, including Adam Lambert. The military veteran and self-proclaimed “computer geek” had been watching when the drives were promoted on Nat Geo Wild in 2014 and was intrigued. “Since going on an African safari has always been one of my wish list or bucket list things, I had to watch. I started watching online that November and have been a faithful viewer ever since.”
Adam can be found on the YouTube almost every day, engaging with other viewers and asking questions of our guides. “As a disabled veteran I have a lot of time and being able to spend six hours a day watching the live safaris is a wonderful way to spend part of my day,” he says.
He has been watching wildlife cams for a number of years but found the regular format of a camera and no commentary “a little boring” because there can be prolonged periods without any animal activity.
He found WE’s travels to the Mara Triangle an especially exciting and unique experience. “The sightings of the river crossings and the croc attacks were really awesome,” he says.
The continued successes of the Nkuhuma pride of lions are also some of his favourite sightings. ” I took many many screenshots through both of those instances.”
If he ever got the chance to travel to the Sabi Sand, Adam says his first choices would be Djuma Private Game Reserve and Arathusa Lodge. “Being a disabled veteran I cannot travel to Africa to fulfill the dream so WildEarth has provided me a way to fulfill that dream.”
