WILDwatch Live with andBeyond
With much of the world currently in lockdown, the acclaimed safari operator behind luxury lodges in areas of extraordinary natural beauty across southern and eastern Africa is bringing the wilderness to you through a month of live game safaris. Each day throughout April the experiential travel company and wildlife broadcasting experts WildEarth will come together to stream personalised game drives for people to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.
Just like the experience you have by making the journey here, each morning and afternoon drive runs across approximately three hours during which time you’re able to interact with the andBeyond safari hosts and WildEarth field guides. The first 45 minutes of the afternoon drive are dedicated to young wildlife fans allowing kids to put their own questions to the guides. Each drive will be streamed on andBeyond’s YouTube and Facebook channels with additional sessions led by andBeyond guides on Instagram Live.
The live safaris are being broadcast each day from andBeyond Ngala Private Game Reserve and the Djuma Private Game Reserve, which both border South Africa’s renowned Kruger National Park. This wilderness is home to a spectacular diversity of wildlife, from herds of elephants, leopards, hyena and giraffe to the majestic white rhino and species Ngala takes its Shangaan name from, the lion.
Staying true to its name, the reserve supports several large lion prides across its vast expanse with traversing rights over 36,324 acres. Adding to this virtual safari offering, andBeyond has also created several digital experiences as a part of its Bringing Africa Home campaign.
