Broadcasting live from Nwanetsi Concession at Singita located inside Kruger National Park, Caught on Safari: Live! will capture a landscape where large prides of lions thrive along with other species including buffalo, leopard, elephant, white and black rhinos. Viewers will hear directly from the game rangers and wildlife trackers watching over Singita along with veterinarians, learning about Africa’s conservation issues as well as specific initiatives taking place in Kruger National Park.

NGC India senior VP, content and communication Rajesh Sheshadri says, “Caught on Safari: Live! would be an unforgettable and rewarding television experience as it would enable viewers to be a part of wild life encounters in real time. Viewers from anywhere in the world can observe and experience a great wealth of information shared by the game guide coupled with the anticipation of what a safari can offer.”

To wire the wild for an up-close look at life in this animal kingdom, cameras will be set up at watering holes around the park and other locations. Mobile cameras on trucks will also accompany the guides as they track various animals.

Every technique used will be designed to non-invasively capture animals at home in their natural element. As an ultimate safari guide, the weeklong live event will present an incredible and unpredictable look at animal behaviour, inspiring resiliency and wildlife survival that can only be captured live.

The live event will be telecast worldwide in 166 countries on National Geographic Channel as well as online at
