The project

The website was developed to provide live visual footage of South African wildlife to TV broadcaster National Geographic Channel. The show “Caught On Safari: Live” featured different places within Kruger National Park using an earthTV camera located at a watering hole. Having aired twice daily, SafariLive is now available 24 hours every day on an online platform jointly owned by earth television network and Aqua Vision. The region will be successively covered in future by about 40 more earthTV cameras.

The web portal is one of the leading LIVE wildlife sites. One can observe animals and get information about them but also book trips in order to experience the animals LIVE. However, the portal offers more than just Videos and LIVE images. Animal diaries, picture galleries as well as Trivia about the Nature which sharpen all sences and are more than just entertainment.

The technology

earthTV network’s revolutionary remote controlled WILDLIVE broadcast camera systems and the transmission via SatLink over IP make this possible without intruding into people’s life or the animals naturals environment and thus without bothering them. The vision behind this project is to bring the world together live on screen as it evolves day by day, hour by hour – in all its diversity and beauty.
