I've always been interested in wildlife and up until Joanne became too ill we usually spent our holidays off whale watching in Scotland or sitting in a hide in some remote area watching various wild animals going about their business.

More recently I've been tuning into the twice daily broadcast from the Djuma Game reserve in Africa where they have an interactive trail drive with one of the game rangers. One is a sunrise safari, the other a sunset safari.

Sometimes not much is found and they spend several hours trying to make Elephant Poo sound interesting but other times we get several hours of Lions, Tigers and just about everything else you wouldn't really want to meet face to face on  dark night.

Check the website here https://wildearth.tv/safarilive/ to find you local times for the broadcasts.

Another great site is Explore.org https://explore.org/livecams/ Loads of Live Cams covering everything from kitten sanctuaries to Orca lookout cams, Bald Eagle nests. Many are seasonal, (The Bald Eagle chicks have all gone now), But the Brown Bears are busy showing off their salmon fishing skills and there is something to watch all year round on the various African Game reserve cams.

Probably just me being a boring old fart but it's better than what's on the TV recently.

A timely reminder it's not a zoo. (And to occasionally look up when tracking a lion).

Sunrise Safari August 16th. Plenty to see but skip to 1 hour 8 minutes in.



"Oh my word" is not what I would have said.

...the lions are not concerned... :Eyecrazy:  The guy just keeps cool and moved slowly backwards. I can imagine it could be difficult to act like that. But anything else could have a dramatic effect.
