The luxury travel company & Beyond and wildlife broadcaster experts WildEarth work together to stream personalized wildlife safaris twice a day that you can do from your own couch see.
The rides take approximately three hours and are streamed in real time from two private reserves in South Africa: & Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve and Djuma Private Game Reserve. Both are located on the edge of Kruger National Park, with Ngala in the larger Timbavati Private Game Reserve and Djuma within the adjacent resources of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
track sounds (and footprints) of wildlife until an animal is spotted. The live streams are hosted by expert guides from & Beyond and WildEarth and will be broadcast every day in April on various social media channels. With the help of a director in a control room, the live feed moves between three or four cameras to provide the best images. You can also interact with the safari hosts and your questions will be answered in real time, as if you were actually in a 4WDrive.
Rides start daily at 6am and 3.30pm although this is somewhat may vary due to sunrise and sunset. Log in to www.andBeyond.com to connect to Wildwatch Live. The rides are also broadcast on & Beyond's Facebook and YouTube channels. You can ask the questions via YouTube or with #wildearth on Twitter.
In addition to these broadcasts with WildEarth, & Beyond also creates Instagram live stories led by guides from & Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve; to watch it follow @andBeyondTravel on Instagram.
