The Cat Report: 4 – 11 May

This week started rather slowly as the big cats kept themselves hidden, leaving us chasing shadows and following tracks in endless circles… It was almost as if they were taking joy out of watching us follow the signs indicating that there were lions and leopards moving all around Djuma. Patience was the lesson because [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
