Need a Mother’s Day gift? Nat Geo WILD has you covered. We are bringing back our popular Safari Live event. A special Mother’s Day weekend treat the whole family can share and enjoy, Safari Live premieres Saturday, May 9, and Sunday, May 10, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET on Nat Geo WILD and online at WILDSafariLive.com. Grab your mom and the family for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go on a live safari to see lions roar, hyenas fight for food, and giraffes run wild — and, if you’re lucky, maybe even some mother-child bonding, wild style — in real time.
No passport required for this one! Spend some time with Mom and witness stunning wildlife, with two expert guides leading the way. All you need is an appetite for adventure and a love for our wild friends in the African bush. Tracker Stefan Winterboer will be taking us on a bush walk, where he will be tracking big game, as our safari guides Pieter Pretorius and Hayden Turner take us deep into South Africa’s Sabi Sands Park to bring us face to face with Africa’s wildlife, including lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo and even some mom-and-baby pairings in the animal kingdom.
During the safari between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. ET, guides Pieter and Hayden will also answer questions from viewers live via Twitter with #SafariLive and email through our website WILDSafariLive.com. The guides will also host a “campfire chat” at the end of each broadcast to answer viewer questions and talk about highlights from the day’s safari.
