WE are Expanding into the Mara
safariLIVE is expanding and in the next month or two. You will be able to follow the animal characters of the Masai Mara in Kenya as well as your favourites in the Sabi Sands in South Africa.
Some of the team are packing up their binoculars, spot lights, cameras and toothbrushes, polishing their East African wildlife knowledge, getting on a plane and making the great migration to the Masai Mara in Kenya. James, Jamie, Stef and Brent along with some other crew members are embarking on a new adventure.
Tayla, Tristan, Byron and Ale along with many others will remain at Djuma initially but they too will be going to the Mara later on. This means that your daily LIVE safari’s will now be brought to you from not just one but two of the best wilderness areas in the world.
The Maasai Mara can be found in the southwestern parts of Kenya. The savannah wilderness is not constricted by fences or boundaries allowing the animals to wander wildly and freely. This is not only good for the wildlife but it also allows people to respectfully roam freely.
Millions of wildebeest, Thomson's gazelles and zebras move in mass herds from the Serengeti in Tanzania into the Maasai Mara and back again throughout the year. WE think that this is a spectacular, not-to-be-missed experience and want to share it with you - after all it is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
safariLIVE has been preparing to launch its new operations in the Mara for a while. We are nearly ready to start broadcasting and tests should start in early May.
Just remember that nothing will change for you. There will still be two three hour LIVE safari’s everyday but instead of them only coming from the Sabi Sands now they will come from the Masai Mara as well.
This means a plethora of new animals to meet and a whole new ecosystem to learn about. It’s going to be a real adventure and we are excited to bring it to you LIVE and daily.
Below is a checklist of things to remember for the upcoming Migration! Get your pens out and start ticking!
Things to Remember:
- Start an East African Mammal / Bird / Butterfly / Tracks list
- Start new Animal Character folders
- The Annual Great Migration happens from early June - Mid October
