#safariLIVE Viewer Profile: John Captures Life With His Lens

A month ago, regular Pete's Pond viewer John Bell discovered safariLIVE and became a member of our burgeoning online community. "I'm now hooked and try to watch most of both daily drives live," he says.

A retired resident of Bray in the UK, John has been able to go on safari in South Africa several times in the last decade. "I love watching safariLIVE as it's addictive and you never know what's going to happen next! Just like being there in the bush, which I have done many times."

He has a great interest in wildlife photography and sent in a few of his favourite images from his trips to  the Pielanesburg, Sabi Sands, Ngala, Kruger and Kapama reserves. "I'm keen on golf and cricket too. The River Thames backs onto our house in Windsor and we get a huge variety of wildlife."

John says he has already recommended safariLIVE to many others and "will continue to do so." He hopes to visit one of the properties we traverse on drive during a future trip to Africa.
