Well, I saw the first episode Sunday evening and thought it was pretty good overall. I also see it has had some criticism in the press because too much of it was pre-recorded… but what’s the alternative… looking at a couple of grazing buffalo in dark through thermal imaging cameras.
Incidentally, the part which is broadcast live from the Masai Mara is coming from Governor’s Camp, one of our favourites for sending clients to. In fact one of our specialists, Kate, is currently in the area and met the film crew there including the presenter, Richard Hammond.
About Governor’s Camp
The camp is right in the heart of the Musiara area, home to the legendary Marsh Pride of lions. To take advantage of this, Governors’ offer three game drives per day, although it’s not unusual to find the game coming to you. Governors’ has 38 tents, half of which overlook the Mara River and the other half the plains. With long-standing staff and a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, this camp will Masai Mara National Reserve suit couples and families alike.
