Thanks WS. We used to get to watch these game drives and they were great weren't they? I'll have to try and be at my desk at the right time to tune in.

I'd forgotten all about Wildearth What a Face

LIVE safaris at Djuma & Arathusa are back!!

WildEarth is super excited and proud to announce that LIVE safaris are back! On the 2nd November 2014, if all goes to plan, WE will begin broadcasting twice daily 3-hour safaris on the Internet. We will be traversing both Djuma and Arathusa game reserves and that means that all our favourite animal characters are back: Karula, the Nkuhuma lion pride, Shadow, Mvula and so many more.

This time we are broadcasting from 2 safari vehicles [the Jigga and now also "Wendy"] in the same show. That means that Will Fox [director] will cut between the two vehicles so that you see far more sightings and less driving around. To begin with Pieter Pretorius and Hayden Turner will be presenting from 2nd November to the 7th December. After that Marc Weiner and Scott Dyson will be joining us [8th December] and will carry us through to the 31st January 2015, when this series is scheduled to end.

In addition to broadcasting every safari LIVE on the Internet on wildearth.tv we will also be broadcasting on National Geographic's Big Cat Week website and during Big Cat Week [29th November to 7th December] we will be broadcasting our PM Safari LIVE on NG Wild and National Geographic TV channels in High Definition.
You will be able to ask questions via email and also Tweet using the #safarilive hashtag to help identify the cats we see and ask the hosts questions.

Thanks WS. I've just tried the second link via National Geographic which seems to work best for me. Hopefully I can catch up with some of the afternoon drives, definitely not the early am ones for sure!

That was lovely to be able to have a look in after so long, cheers WS

Well the early morning game drive is too early for me, but I've just had a quick catch up with some of the clips, my problem is our bb speed which is so slow that it whirrs at lot of the time and then has to catch up, supposedly one of these days we will have fibre optic but nobody knows when Shocked

I did look in at Djuma waterhole which had hundreds of buff boys crossing at speed - it was lovely to watch.


Anyway, hoping to catch the afternoon drive today

I managed to catch the last 20mins this morning, not sure about this afternoon yet. It may not be all your BB's problem, the drives are very glitchy at the moment a lot of breakup, and pixelation, it also keeps dropping out which is proberbly why your getting the buffereing. They are sorting out sat relays as they go along and find dead or bad spots. Been some good sightings so far 13 Lions from the Breakaway Pride formed by 4 females who left the Styx Pride at Djuma and moved next door to Aruthasa, also Kurula, and her son Quarantine

It was really exciting to watch Lai. Wonderful to watch live as they played, and the Adults kept an eye on them. Although we were brought back to the reality of life in the wild the next day, when the Alpha Female, and another Male cornered a pregnant Impala in the water below the Dam. After she went into the water attempting to swim to the other side, and being blocked off by the Male Wild Dog, she kept swimming back, and forth for ages. While she did this the Alpha Female went off, and came back with the rest of the pack, and the Pups. Eventualy the Impala was forced to leave the water through exhuastion, and was immediatly grabbed by the Adult Dogs, it was a very intense watch, and extremely graphic to see. Nobody likes to see an animal being killed, and its that graphic that I'm not going to put a Vid or a link of it on, but as we all appreciate this sort of thing happens in Africa many times in a day, and Wild Dogs were only doing what they have to, to survive. Circle of life, even the presenters were emotionaly affected by the scene.

Leopard Day on Wildearth Safaris Live

A wonderful day on the Drives today. First up Tingana a really handsome Male Leopard



Then the Highlight of the day, our old friend Kurula, who has now been given the title Queen of Djuma. She looks really fit, and well

Tingana was found again today on the PM drive tucking into a meal. A Zebra foal he had caught, and stashed in a tree the day before.

Hopefully it will Lai, apparently 80% of births happen in a two to three week period so giving each calf, and better chance of survival, because of the number of calf's born.
Perhaps more more baby's on the way although I'm not sure if either pride members will be ecstatic about it

Matimba Male & Styx Female mating caught on Safari Drive Live
