&Beyond Offers a Virtual Safari Every Day in April

So, let’s go to Africa. Yea, there’s a bunch of travel restrictions in place and we’re supposed to be practising social isolation, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still go on safari, especially with &Beyond’s new Wildwatch Live service. The new service offers you the chance to go on a virtual safari and get beyond the confines of your own home.

Elephant Go on a Virtual Safari

“In a quest to relieve the tedium of isolation,” says &Beyond’s web site, “we’ve collaborated with wildlife broadcasting experts, WildEarth, to stream (in real-time) twice-daily, three-hour-long game drives from &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve and Djuma Private Game Reserve.” These aren’t canned videos that are being played back. You can actually interact with the guides, submitting questions and getting answers. “Authentic and non-scripted, the game drives will follow the sights and sounds of the African wilderness as they unfold,” says &Beyond. The safaris feature footage from three or four cameras offering live feeds. A director in a control room creates “a seamless multi-feed virtual game drive” for the viewer. You can also check out &Beyond’s Instagram channel for additional footage of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Phinda Private Game Reserve. Expert guides will be posting any sighting they come across there.

Go on a Virtual Safari

For the little animal lovers in your life, the virtual safaris will offer the first 45 minutes of each tour to allow them to participate. Parents just need to sign their child up ahead of time and email in any questions to get responses during the tour.

The drives will be streamed over a variety of social media platforms every day throughout the month of April. It may not be the same as actually being on the continent, but you can still visit Africa and look at something other than the same four walls.
