diveLIVE Update: 11 May

Hello again, A quick update with some good news. The new Equipment Housing has arrived and we are pressure testing it at depth today before putting the broadcast equipment in. This housing also has a pressure gauge and can be pulled vacuum which means we can test whether it is properly sealed with no [...]

diveLIVE Diary: Week 1 to present

It may be only week 3 in Grand Cayman, but I already feel like a different person from the dude that jumped off the plane only 16 days ago. Not only have I experienced physical changes (darker skin, lighter hair and loss of the beer belly), I also feel a great sense of positive [...]

An Afternoon with the Cheetah, Naretoi, and Her Cubs

The long rains continue to sweep through the Mara leaving the Triangle a waterlogged paradise. The roadways have transformed into waterways, and they are a few litres short of turning our safaris into cruises. Well, that may be an exaggeration, but we do have to be particularly careful even in areas where offroading is [...]

diveLIVE: Beta update 9 May

Victory has been snatched from our dedicated Grand Cayman team as yet more technical gremlins endeavour to wield their mischief on our underwater gear. For those who got to watch last night’s dive, you would have experienced a rather abrupt end to it after Pat lost comms. Well, what was really happening behind the [...]

Maintaining an Icon

safariLIVE has been fortunate enough to showcase some of the most extraordinary wilderness areas on the planet, one of which is the Maasai Mara in Kenya. While WE have been filming spectacular scenes of cheetah chasing down antelope or hordes of wildebeest throwing themselves across the Mara River, the beauty and splendour has often [...]

Directing 101: My first experience in a broadcast control room

“Five, four, three, two, one… live, live!” - the words instantly release a tiny dose of adrenaline which runs through my body. No retakes, no fixing in post and editing; just this moment right here, captured on camera, sent straight to thousands of viewers. Still the only words in four years of filmmaking that [...]

safariLIVE Time Change 1 May 2018

There are certain things that are inescapable, no matter where you may live in the world. One such unavoidable natural dynamic is the ever changing seasons. With the southern African sun rising later and setting earlier we are well on our way into winter. This does mean yet another adjustment to our scheduled safari [...]

The Cat Report: 21 – 27 April

After petering out, the storm that is the Avoca males once again seems to be brewing. The three young lions were found in the south of Djuma early in the week making their boldest and biggest movement into the heart of the Birmingham males’ territory. After spending their Saturday lounging around they headed back [...]

The Cat Report 14 – 20 April

This week has been rather quiet on the cat front especially during the first few days where it seemed as if all the cats had disappeared off the reserve. Slowly but surely, as the week progressed, more and more tracks and signs of leopard began to emerge and then once into the middle of the week we saw [...]
