This is a year of change and adaptation for WildEarth and safariLIVE.

As Heraclitus once said “The only constant is change,” and these words lend themselves nicely to the ever evolving and dynamic aspect of mother nature, and our enduring mission to connect people to the wild.

As of Monday, 8 April, safariLIVE will no longer be broadcasting the Sunrise Safaris. This change comes with many exciting new developments. Instead of heading out once in the morning and once in the afternoon, safariLIVE will bring you not only the Sunset Safari, but take you into the night, every night! With the use of our thermal and infrared technology, we aim to discover the secret lives of those creatures that call the darkness home.

From your favourite big cat characters to the smaller and more elusive animals like aardvark, porcupine and pangolins, we aim to bring you these animals in their natural environment, undisturbed and doing exactly as they are meant to. We will be delivering as many live night feeds as possible from both the Sabi Sand in South Africa and the Mara Triangle Conservancy in Kenya. This not only includes our intrepid vehicle teams but also our thermal eye in the sky, set to search the wild from the ground and the air.

The cancellation of the Sunrise Safaris is as a direct result of this exciting new change. The naturalists, camera operators and directors will be working long after the sun has set on Africa and will therefore need their mornings for much needed rest. We will aim to broadcast sunrise action when we have more crew onsite and this will go live to Facebook and Twitter’s Periscope, so keep an eye out for those notifications.

The safariLIVE crew is “over the moon” about this exciting new change to exploring the wild. We look forward to having you all join us for this pioneering new way of exploring Africa and her best kept secrets.
