WE are going to be taking another break from the Mara

As many of you will remember, we had to take a break from broadcasting from the Mara in the first half of last year. At that time we promised we would be back and did indeed return. Unfortunately, we have reached another point where we need to stop broadcasting from the Mara. As was [...]

My safariLIVE Experience

Creature Feature: Squirrels in the Attic

This is not the first time I’ve had animal intruders in my living space. The siafu ants marching into my tent, a toad who I had to rescue and relocate outside, and lizards who crawl on every internal surface. On my return to the safariLIVE, camp in South Africa, I found myself once again [...]
