One of our favourite safari camps in Kenya, Governors’ Camp, is hosting a film crew from the new BBC Planet Earth Live programme. Presented by Richard Hammond and Julia Bradbury, we are looking forward to watching the real life dramas of animals in the wild. While the show will report from around the world, we have it on excellent authority that the team in Kenya have already captured some excellent footage of Masai Mara lions.
Positioned right on the bank of the Masai Mara River, Governors’ is an open camp which allows animals to wander through. During a transmission test the other night, the BBC crew were interrupted by a herd of buffalo and a hippo, so we’re excited to see what will happen on the eight live shows coming from the camp.
The show starts on Sunday night on BBC 1 at 7.50pm and there will be eight episodes in total. Make sure you watch Indian Ocean with Simon Reeve on BBC2 straight afterwards… safari and beach, what could be better!
