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 [...]

My safariLIVE Experience

Having been to South Africa and on safari a few times, I wanted a different, more immersive ‘safari’ experience. I wanted to feel what it was like to live in the bushveld and learn how safariLIVE operates, on and off camera. Honestly, I wondered how I’d be perceived as a ‘viewer in camp,’ how [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Character Feature: Horned Visitors

Of all the animals to visit our camp in Djuma, most are on the small end of things. While we of course are careful of the larger animals we share the reserve with, it is rare we actually encounter them, more often finding evidence of their passage such as dung or tracks. But sometimes [...]

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 [...]

Creature Feature: A Toady Intruder

Living out here in the bush, your neighbors are animals. Although we each have our own tents, the animals don’t care much about your privacy and when given the chance, will invade your personal quarters. I’ve had insects and small lizards get into my tent before but a few nights ago, a larger intruder [...]

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 [...]
