  1. Between October and November we spent 10 days in the Serengeti. 5 days at Dunia Camp and another 5 at Sayari. We had a really wonderful time and had some great sightings. I was a bit worried about visiting in "shoulder season" but in the end it was a very good time to visit. We had quite a bit of rain in the Northern Serengeti but we enjoyed it a lot - quite something to see the clouds rolling in, and wet cats But most of the time it was beautiful and sunny. Here is a short video trip report by Mr Cheetah80.
  2. Last year at a zookeepers conference I was asked if I wanted to go along on a debut trip of American Zookeepers to join a cat walk which is a conservation effort by MYCAT to keep the Taman Negara park safe for Tigers and other wildlife. The Malayan Tiger may be the least known of the remaining six sub species of tiger and their numbers are down to around 250. Long story short, I was totally for the idea and a year later I found myself there with 14 other keepers. Before we went into the jungle we spent a day exploring Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, which is where the video report starts. Video one finds us at the bird park. I hope you enjoy the series. For more info on MYCAT look at:
  3. In my quest to see the world's exotic cats my next choice was the largest feline found in the America's, the Jaguar. After doing some research it seemed the easiest location to spot them was the Pantanal in Brazil since during the hot season they come by the rivers. After looking into various companies (Brazil trips are not cheap even though our US dollar is about 4 times more than the Brazilian Real) and for the best viewing chance and something with in my budget, I learned staying on the houseboats and being on the river makes it all easier. There were several companies, but after contacting some it seemed Pantanal Nature Wildlife Tours 6 day, 5 nights trip would be my best option as I only had about 9 days off of work. All the companies seem to hang out in the same areas on the rivers as well as just like Africa, they radio each other to let each little boat know what is out there. So I left Chicago in early October and arrived in Cuiaba, Brazil day later. The video will take you through this experience. What I did not mention in the video was that the tour group consisted of myself, Eddie the guide and 2 nice people from Australia and a friendly teacher from New Zealand. Both parties had way more vacation/holiday time to spend traveling than me and I was jealous. The U.S. lacks in the vacation category for sure. Well, I hope you like the video and if anyone has any questions, please ask.
  4. Have you thought about joining an exciting Rhinos Without Borders rhino release? It is a wild and exciting experience but a little difficult to attend. Now is your chance to join in on this amazing experience. In association with GoPro and the Great Plains Foundation, there is an opportunity that allows you to be in the midst of a rhino relocation from your sitting room. Rhinos Without Borders is a project moving 100 rhino from areas of high poaching and now drought conditions to the safety of remote regions deep within Botswana’s wilderness. With a poaching rate of one rhino every 7 hours these moves are critical to the survival of the species and using the latest GoPro technology they have produced a Virtual Reality experience that enables you to join in as if you were with us, standing alongside our experts and being talked through the process by Dereck Joubert, who is the CEO of Great Plains Conservation. We hope that you enjoy it. This is a joint initiative between Great Plains Conservation and andBeyond. If you would like to support the Rhinos Without Borders initiative please go to /
  5. Here is a video my partner took in June, when the Oloololo boys were in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. Sadly one of them has recently succumbed to cat flu.
  6. What is the state of the Masai Mara and conservancies right now? Does anyone know?
  7. This will be the first of several posts covering the just completed green season safari to Botswana with Moses Ntema of Unlimited Safaris in Maun ( This was our third mobile tented safari with Moses and we spent 14 days in bush from our campsite at Second Bridge in Moremi (BOCA site) to CKKOR #3 in Deception Valley CKGR and then Nxai Pan to see the zebra migration. Some quick highlights of the trip: 41 lions, 9 cheetahs, 5 leopards, 2 wild dog successful hunts on impala, lions in trees, leopard in camp, huge zebra migration in Nxai Pan and being with a pride of 17 lions (together) for 2 days during the zebra migration. The most memorable safari of the 6 we have been on. Moses Ntema has a gift with animals - - they just came to us in a way that no one I have been with the bush can come close to matching. Just incredible - - you will see in a moment what I mean... Just to get it all started - - if you want 10 minutes of peace to look at some of the video highlights of trip, then go to this on on ipad and turn up the volume to hear the roaring lions. More to come...Steve
  8. Back story: After taking 5 safaris to Kenya from 2003-2010, I wanted to try another African country. I asked about gorilla tracking and also Tanzania here on Safari Talk. Through that I met Roberto from Savannah Explorers, and soon we were planning my next 10 days safari. I wanted a budget of less than 350 USD a day for everything, and it all worked out. Well, I had to put my gorilla dreams on hold until a future date. I asked off from work (I work as a zookeeper in the Chicago area) and charged my cameras so I could go on this trip in Jan-Feb 2014. That pretty much takes us into my first video (I am having problems with creating a I will type the address and hope for the best here) We start from cold Chicago and soon are in Arusha town to spend the night. I once again flew with KLM and had no problems...well the vegetarian food dinner was bad on the plane, but you can't win them all. Once in town, we met with our guide/driver Rama and took off to the Freedom Lodge. It was a very nice place (no other guests but my wife and I this night) and the food and room was excellent. All I wanted was a shower and a bed to rest for a few hours before driving out (approx. 2 hours) to our first park. Tarangire. As our guide was getting the paper work done to enter the park a woman screamed in the shop area. A black mamba had found its way into the shop and cleared it out. Soon the snake was on its way, and I was also on my way... Our first drive is here: What a way to start our trip with seeing a beautiful lioness and also some eles playing in the mud. For the most part (other than the lion sighting) we were the only jeep around. It took a while to get used to the jeep, as I was used to open air jeeps at Lewa, but since it was only my wife and I, I could easily manage myself between looking out from the top or my side window. We spent the night at the Osupuko Loge which sits right on the park's boundary. It was an excellent place. For those of you new to me.. I post a video every 10-14 days or so and this trip will take maybe 12 videos to go through to be complete.
  9. We are making a habit out of this it seems, but in lieu of a conventional trip report here is a video with 100 1-second clips from our trip to Madagascar in September/October 2013. Shot and compiled by my partner who still is not on Safaritalk... If you are interested in more short videos of Madagascar - in a more regular format - here they are The Dancing Sifakas The Call of the Indri
  10. For more information about British Pathé, visit their website at or browse their extensive Youtube video archive here. For those of you who have been to Murchison and Queen Elizabeth National Park, what changes did you note in the film?
  11. I'm not a fan of Drones being used in photography, but I have to admit this is some beautiful imagery in this video. Will Burrard-Lucas is a fantastic wildlife photographer and is developing his own ultra quite drones, so is aware of the impact these may have on the wildlife during filming. BeetleCopter in the Serengeti Also a good link to his gear list.
  12. Namibia is a vast country with highly varied terrain and a massive range of activities. This video hopefully gives you a feel for the tapestry.
  13. Here's a video we just made and thought you might enjoy watching! Tswalu Kalahari - South Africa’s largest private game reserve, covering an area of 100,000 hectares. It is situated in the north-west of the country near Botswana and Namibia and is in a malaria-free region: If you like this, check out our YouTube channel here for loads more Africa safari videos!
  14. Hi folks, I am thinking of upgrading my tripod & head. I currently have a velbon victory 350 tripod with a 3 way, rather wobbly head. I tried out a new manfrotto 128 rc head, but unfortunately the thread on my existing tripod is so old and knackered that the adapter screw doesn't sit flush. So now I am looking at the prospect of upgrading the whole legs and head rather than just the head. It needs to be multi purpose, to happily carry a small <1kg scope, or my Olympus with the 1.4 and 50-200 on it as well as being smooth enough to shoot video with my little Panny camcorder. It needs to be lightweight enough to travel with, in so much as lightweight as my existing tripod, doesn't need to be ultra compact. But needs to be durable enough to replace my main tripod for birding in the uk as well, in all conditions. The manfrotto head would fit the bill I think, but what about the legs? I also need a solution that I can detach the head for use on a monopod. Any thoughts most welcome Jo
  15. There are some high end professional type cameras available but for the non expert. non professional what would you recommend? What is current best format on the non professional circuit? If you use AVCHD do you need additional software (compared to your basic PC type software) How can you maintain quality once you have captured it ( e;g YouTube) or do you need some other mechanism/software to retain capture quality? Any advice greatly apperciated. From one of the uninitiated.
  16. Ok, I know this sounds like some cheesy ad, but the Game Warden has asked me to post on how all of you that take these safari videos might like to make some money. It seems the most and easiest site to upload your safari videos to is YouTube. I have seen some amazing videos posted here by S.T. members especially the ones with the wild dogs. YouTube has a program with google called AdSense in which it can place small square ads on the lower portion of your video. They also can place ads that can be watched or turned off in the beginning of your video as well. They then pay you a little for doing so. In the past you had to apply to become a "YouTube Partner" something I did back in 2008 when it was getting off the ground as Brian's Art for Animals. But now YouTube will also contact anyone who seems to have a video that is generating some good views (just how many views is still a mystery to me, but lets say you get a few thousand in a week, they might be contacting you), and ask if they can place the ads. I guess as part of our contract we aren't to say how much money one can get, and it does change from time to time. But for me I guess I can say it allows me to donate a few hundred USD a month to various wildlife conservation groups and that helps a lot to those smaller organizations. So "google" or search for the adsense program OR if you think you will have enough original content to post weekly (like what I do with my Safari Series..basically I go on a 10 day or so trip and film the thing, and then make many short 5-8 minute episodes to post twice a month or so) then look into joining the YouTube Partner Program as we all know the smaller conservation groups can use all the help they can get. Here is an example of one of my more silly videos.
  17. Animated clip about the rhino poaching crisis. The use of rhino horn as a recreational drug or cancer treatment in Asia is based on myths. As a result, rhino in Africa and Asia are brutally slaughtered in huge numbers for their horns. The rhino trade is a symptom. We need to tackle the root cause of problems, not just treat symptoms, and work on long term solutions. English version: Vietnamese version: WE ADD OUR COLLECTIVE VOICES TO ENDING THIS KILLING ... DO YOU?
