Creature Feature: Olive Baboon

At the foothills of safariLIVE’s Mara camp, past the FC studio, lies a dense bracket of trees that, covers the outskirts of our campsite. While not quite a forest, this part of the geography provides a dense wood that is inhabited by all manner of animals. Wildebeest, elephants and zebra have been spotted wandering [...]

Creature Feature: My Neighbor The Zebra

Often in camp, I don’t see many of the larger animals that roam the wilds of the Maasai Mara. I’ve only heard the distant laughter of hyenas, seen smashed trees left behind by elephants, and been told by co-workers that leopards or lions are active in the area. But otherwise, I mainly see smaller [...]

This made us think about ways to make it possible for more of our viewers to come visit us. The answer we've found is called 'WildEarth Expeditions'. WildEarth Expeditions are trips [...]

safariLIVE: The Gauntlet – North Clan

The more inhuman an animal gets, the more trouble we have with empathizing with them. Apes and monkeys look very similar to us, so we have an easier time accepting them as living beings capable of expressing emotions similar to ours. But the further away animals get from a humanoid look, the more trouble [...]

Creature Feature: The Little Lizards

Lizards, in the Mara, tend to be looked over for the most part. Often too small to be really noticed by most explorers, they can only really be seen by paying attention to the smaller natural world. Often, this is easier said than done, these small reptiles are very good at hiding and scurry [...]

safariLIVE: The Gauntlet – The continued evolution of safariLIVE storytelling

Many of you, as long-time viewers of safariLIVE on the internet and TV will have noted how the storytelling on TV has evolved. Something we've learned over the years is that TV and internet remain very different 'beasts' which people watch in different ways and with different intent and intensity. To adapt to this [...]
