Just over a week ago, on Sunday, November 2, Nat Geo WILD embarked on a three-month safari in Kruger National Park in Africa for Wild Safari Live, bringing viewers a live safari from the heart of Africa everyday in real-time. On Saturday, November 8, at 11:45 a.m. ET, our cameras captured groundbreaking footage of a pack of wild dogs bringing down a pregnant impala in the Djuma Game Reserve. Viewers joining the webcast saw the entire event unfold on Nat Geo WILD’s live stream coverage of Safari Live via wildsafarilive.com. Viewers were transfixed by one of the most primal and powerful scenes in all of nature.
“It’s simply incredible that our WildEarth crew was there to broadcast such an extremely rare and extraordinary event to our audiences around the world,” said Geoff Daniels, executive vice president and general manager of Nat Geo WILD. “To be able to witness the circle of life unfold before our very eyes in such a dramatic way — live — was truly remarkable. It proves how compelling the natural world can be at any moment and why no viewer should miss the Safari Live experience.”
