Djuma is building a new pan next to Gowrie dam

As the current pan next to Gowrie dam is using a lot of precious water to keep filled, Djuma has decided to build a new permanent pan next to it. Once the new pan is in place, the current one will no longer be pumped and thus become seasonal, just as the main dam and [...]

safariLIVE Experience: Teresa Eubanks

I have been watching safariLIVE for two years, but I never thought I’d have the chance to visit the camp and spend time with the crew, as well as see the characters with my own two eyes. So, when the safariLIVE Experience was introduced as a part of the diveLIVE Kickstarter campaign, I knew [...]

The Extraordinary Capabilities of the Creepy-Crawly

Whilst doing some administrative jobs for the FC girls, I came across a page titled ‘Special Days Calendar’. I was tasked to make sure that all the days aligned and were, in fact, real events. Having gone through the list extensively I found that ‘National Pollinators Week’ was only officially celebrated in the United [...]

An Intern’s Insight into Life at Djuma

I came into this experience feeling confident; I have visited the Djuma Research Camp before, spent a fair amount of time in the Sabi Sands and I’m comfortable and happy in the bush. I was also familiar with Hoedspruit, which proved highly useful when one of the newer crew members came to pick me [...]

Character Feature: Naretoi the female cheetah

Like mother, like daughter. Naretoi, a female cheetah and daughter of Kakenya, is a relatively new addition to the Maasai Mara’s array of characters but like her mother before her, she has become a fan favorite. Born in 2014, Naretoi grew up under the care of her mother, living alongside her two sisters and [...]

Character Feature: Avoca Males

Animals can at once seem very alien to us while paradoxically full of personality. We can only guess at what really goes on inside their minds but nonetheless, they seem to radiate characteristics and quirks that make them more relatable to us, showing them as thinking, feeling creatures despite their differences to humans. This [...]

Creature Feature: Bathroom critters

The bathroom isn’t normally a space thought to be host to a wide variety of life. It’s not supposed to be at all, one might say. But here at Djuma, I’ve encountered a wide variety of creatures (mostly insects) residing in the three bathrooms of safariLIVE’s campsite. Mostly, I see them during the night, [...]

Creature Feature: Thieving Monkeys & Baboons

safariLIVE’s camp is under siege. Who has breached its gates and is terrorizing the populace inside? Is it a group of marauding hyenas? A colossal force of siafu ants? An enraged elephant, finally sick of these annoying humans who bumble about its kingdom? All valid guesses but the intruders who cause no end of [...]
