Videos of Africa: safari wildlife

Thursday, June 14th, 2012
  • Google+

This is one of the better safari videos of Africa I've come across. It's doesn't have long frames of buffalo swishing their tales, but rather includes short snippets of good footage capturing the true character and quirky behavior of safari wildlife. Definitely an amazing Africa safari experience caught on camera.

Watch this Video of Africa's safari wildlife:

You get people who think they know what African safari wildlife are all about. They flip through magazines and see photos of lions with their head back, roaring; their wild side exposed, captured and printed thanks to African photography. Then you get those who love watching safari wildlife. Watching from a distance. They tune into National Geographic, they YouTube videos of Africa and watch in adoration and amazement from the comfort of their sofas.

When you watch videos of Africa, you get the chance to observe wildlife up close. You get to watch a cheetah manoeuvre it's sleek anatomy and race after dinner. Returning satisfied. Wildlife safaris captured on film by those who know what they are doing are simply amazing - no detail is spared. You get to see the way a buck wrinkles its nose when it drinks. The way a cheetah climbs a tree with such ease. The way giraffes stand dead still; the only sign of life coming from it's flittering ears. So if those who just flip through magazines and don't watch videos of Africa, are missing out on all the small things that make Africa so amazing, then what are those who watch videos of Africa missing out on that those who travel on an Africa safari trip experience?

Should we keep wild animals in zoos?

Thursday, November 10th, 2011
  • Google+

We are firm believers that wild animals should be where they belong: in the wild. Zoos and circuses are out but rehabilitation centres and sanctuaries are understandably in!

Should we keep wild animals in zoos?

Confused and frustrated, these animals show visitors at the zoo that you can take an animal out of the wild, but you can't take the wild out of the animal. *Queue lion roar here*

In a very clever ad campaign for a zoo, the nature of wildlife is portrayed perfectly:

Why would you want to visit a zoo or circus to see wildlife anyway? Why not go on a real wildlife safari or visit a wildlife rehabilitation centre? We want to hear what you have to say about the matter. Should we keep wild animals in zoos? Drop us a comment below. Go wild.
