safariLIVE time change 15 March 2018

The call of the woodland kingfisher no longer rings through the wilderness as an iconic sound of summer in the lowveld.

Behind the Camera

Dust will never interfere with Wium's camerawork. We know their names, we see their hands, we hear their muffled commentary. safariLIVE wouldn’t be the same (or even possible) without the invisible men on the vehicle, the men behind the camera.
