Wild Earth Safari – Rehash!

So because of the weather changes the Wild Earth Safari drive live web-feed has know changed times…again! The easiest way to explain it is the Sunrise drives are now 30 minutes (half an hour) later and the evening/sunset drive is now an hour early.

I expect to see you all there! Wild Safari Live – Nat Geo or Wild Safari Live – UStream

“As of Thursday, April 9, 2015, the sunset SafariLIVE will begin at 6:30am and end at 9:30am (UTC/GMT+2). The sunset drive will move to 3:00pm and end at 6:00pm.

These changes will ensure that the drives start early enough, with sunrise being later in our winter months, and the earlier sunsets.

Viewers will now see the sunrise drive a half hour later and the sunset drive an hour earlier than previously scheduled. This means that if you live in the Pacific Time Zone, the AM safari begins at 9:30pm on Wednesday, April 8, in the Central Time Zone at 11:30pm and in the Atlantic Time Zone at 00:30am on Thursday, April 9″.

 

Wild Earth Safari

Since the beginning of October I have been watching a web cab feed called “Wild Earth Safari” and in Australia they run from 2:30pm-5:30pm and 12:30am to 3:30am. The web cam feed runs until January the 31st (although I, and many others, have asked, if there is any possibility of them running longer than that).

These feeds are taken from the game reserves of Djuma Game Reserve and Arathusa Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin. You can all sorts of animal Lions, Leopards, Hippos, Ellies and Impala…Oh My!

They have experienced rangers and guides that drive around and along the way for the couple of hours they are with you. They will inform, and educate on a wide range of the flora and fauna of the animals and plants within their game reserves. They are incredibly good teachers and even when you see the true side of nature and the wild. They remind of you of “This is nature”.

I suggest you go and have a look at Wild Earth Safari and I’ll see you on the drive!

Magic baby Ostriches!

Last year was a really rough year for myself. I went through a really rough break up and found out what and who real friendships meant. During this time I was also doing my studies to become a Librarian.

Also last year one of my friends introduced me to a live feed, during which a baby ostrich was trying to hatch out of its egg. I spent the entire night and into the early morning watching this little baby Ostrich hatch. The reason I am making this post is because for me the birth of this bird introduced me to a different side of life. It felt like magic watching this baby bird hatch, it is one of the few times that I have watched any type of baby animal be born. It is definitely the first time I have watched a bird hatch out of it’s egg.

The “Dash” family decided to contribute this live feed to the entire world and I ended up making friends from all over the world. Unfortunately their first baby Ostrich passed away due to complications of  infected intestines and a retained yolk sac. (I cried about the baby Ostrich more than losing my ex as a friend). The Dash family decided to take on 3 more baby birds and they all eventually passed away due to different reasons (one was attacked by a raccoon!).

You can only imagine my excitement this morning when I woke up and there was an email notification saying that the Baby Ostrich Cam went live! I went straight there, before I ate, drank or got changed for the day. They now have 5 little eggs that they are hoping will be hatching around the 13th of July 2014. I think that that couple of days I will be taking notes and then I am going to write one full blog about it…So look out for that one!
