A chance to go on a live African Safari from your home, twice a day.
During this C-19 lockdown, The Kruger National Park in South Africa is conducting personalised African game drives – non-scripted and hosted by field guides – twice a day, which can be watched live on YouTube and Facebook, free of charge. Viewers will be able to ask the field guides real-time questions.
Each excursion, about three hours long, covered by three or four live feeds, captures the action as it unfolds and this will be live-streamed from the &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve (which shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park) and the Djuma Private Game Reserve (part of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve), in South Africa.
The first 45 minutes of each afternoon drive will be dedicated to the young and the guides will answer questions asked by children only, on YouTube or using #wildearth on Twitter.
Parents can sign up their children by selecting a date on Wild Earth Kids. Questions can be emailed for age-appropriate responses.
