Time Change For #SafariLive

As of Friday, August 28th, #SafariLive will start later, with the sunrise drive beginning at 6:00am and ending at 9:00am, and the sunset drive at 3:30pm and ending at 6:30pm. This change is being made to accommodate for the change of seasons and make the most of the time we have on drive.

This translates to start times for sunrise drive of 00:00am ET, 21:00pm PT, 05:00 in the UK, 06:00 in Central Europe, and 14:00 Sydney time, and, accordingly, 09:30am ET, 6:30am PT, 14:30 in the UK, 15:30 in Central Europe, and 23:30 Sydney time for the sunset drive.

As always, you're welcome to interact with the guides by asking questions through #safarilive on Twitter or via email at

Some upcoming changes

Over the coming week(s) we will be trying out some new things. Or, for our long-term viewers, breathe new life into some old things.

The Fireside Chat will take a one week break but will be back next week.

During the coming week we will also start doing some tests with a special type of camera that will allow us to go out after dark again. We cannot say when yet, but we will likely be doing some live trials during the week.

Furthermore the walks will be restarted this coming Friday and we are looking into moving the Djuma waterhole camera back to its old location near the pumped little pan in case Gowrie Dam dries up completely.

Enough to look forward to, so keep an eye out for more info on our WildEarth Facebook page and Twitter feed.
