It’s back to LIVE TV for the safariLIVE crew! And what better occasion to celebrate our return to the silver screen than Mother’s Day 2017. Some of our most astute viewers will have noticed that WE are already getting into the swing of things by practicing advertisement break intervals during our live drives.

WE will be going LIVE on the 13th and 14th of May 2017 for a magnificent Mother’s Day extravaganza in the bush, broadcast on National Geographic WILD across the USA as well as all the usual internet platforms. Catch up with all your favourite characters from the Sabi Sand as Tayla and Tristan cut their teeth on their first LIVE TV show performances.

WE are extremely excited as this will be our first televised series of shows to feature our newest and most exciting location, the Mara Triangle conservancy in Kenya, East Africa. Brent will be racing around the vast open grasslands and perilous river crossings searching for all manner of astounding African wildlife! You’ll be able to catch up once again with the ever charismatic Kichwa Tembo pride as well as the enormous and ancient clans of hyena that are a constant thorn in the paws of the lions. There’s also the opportunity to meet some new animal characters such as the highly elusive and mysterious leopards of the Mara as well as the world famous cheetahs that use the wide flat landscape as their personal race tracks.

Tweet us with a Mother’s Day shout out to your mom using #safariLIVE and stand a chance for your wonderful well wishes and motherly love to be broadcast LIVE on National Geographic WILD!
