IT IS THEEEE ENNNNNDDDDDDDD. ZEEE EENNDDDDDD. LE END. FIN. *insert funeral music here* Before I get to the sad part about it all being over, let me tell you about some awesome things that happened during our last week of filming. We couldn’t have stayed in a better place… a villa with our own pool … More That’s A Wrap!
We are getting close to wrapping and frankly speaking – I’m starting to freak out. I’ve enjoyed being part of this so much that the thought of it all coming to an end almost feels surreal. It’s like I’ve been in a bubble of fun, adventure and once in a lifetime experiences for the past … More Rhinos, Cheetahs and Prehistoric Wonders
Pretty much exactly what the title says. Let’s start with the ‘leopards’ bit of it all. I came here desperately hoping… PRAYING.. that I’d catch at least a fleeting glimpse of one. By the end of this week, my ‘leopard count’ has totalled to eight. EIGHT!! I know people who’ve spent years in the wild … More Lions, Hyenas and Leopards, Oh My!
This week has been JAM PACKED with magnificent sights, incredible thrills and so much excitement that….yes, there may have been a few dances involved *cough*. It all started when we got to this stunning location , which was actually the same area as our camp during Week 1. It looks super different now as most … More Lion Cubs, Mitch the Friendly Hippo and the Extremely Eventful Evening
The first thing I heard from one of the camera crew this week was: ‘Make sure you don’t get attacked by a horny zebra.‘ …………….uummmmmm okaaay…………….. Took me a moment to realise why: Not the smartest of fashion choices on my part, but thankfully we didn’t come across any er…. ‘interested’ zebra that day. Instead, … More Red Cliffs, Elephant Charges and The Horny Zebra Theory
WE SAW A LEOPARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! drtdhjfutfjgvsedgfglukfyutdfghupouifyjh!!! One of the most elusive and hardest animals to spot in the wild – even people who’ve been working in the bush for decades have only seen them a handful of times. I DESPERATELY wanted to see one during my time here, and luck was on our side one early … More Lake Kariba- part 3. Leopard Luck.
Remember how last week I said it would be good to get some more lion action? Well… the day after I said it, it happened! We were on our way to the next location and came across a whole pride that were eating an impala they had killed a few hours earlier! It was right next … More Lake Kariba- part 2. Fishing Frenzy.
Lake Kariba: One of the world’s biggest man-made lakes, spanning 5,000 sq km and home to hundreds of species of wildlife and birdlife. I have been fortunate enough to spend over 2 weeks on this lake and covering 3 different locations. We are about to leave the first one as I type this and I … More Lake Kariba- part 1. The Lion’s Stare.
A lot of wildlife presenting is about getting a bigger message across. Crucial facts that viewers may not be aware of, calls to action and hopefully a moment of realisation for those who have never been in the wild. This week I felt honoured to meet and work with teams who dedicate their lives to rhino … More It’s a Rhino Thing
Since I’ve been here my inbox has been overflowing with love and support from friends, family and even people whom I haven’t spoken to in years! So firstly: THANK YOU!! Almost every message I receive has a question (or about 20 of them) about my time here so far. I love a bit of curiosity … More The Ins and Outs
