With the latest changes in technology and services available we have seen major events around the world shown to us in whole new ways. Right now you can follow the massive wildebeast migration in Kenya via Periscope, YouTube and more, live and amazing.
A partnership between HerdTracker and MakeItKenya has enabled us to watch two live streams per day of this amazing migration.
Your safari hosts will be Carel Verhoef and Andre Van Kets of DiscoverAfrica.com and co-creators of the HerdTracker migration app. HerdTracker allows people to track the migration in real time on a Google Map throughout the year to identity the best time of year to see the great migration.
To watch the live broadcasts, which will last between 10-20 minutes twice-daily, visit discoverafrica.com/herdtrackerlive and register your email address to receive reminders for live broadcasts, which will be hosted live on periscope.tv/herdtracker and the live safari microsite. You can also follow @herdtracker and @makeitkenya on Facebook and Twitter for notifications on when broadcasts are going live.
Follow all of this action since it started on the 29th of September up until the 5th of October. If you miss any of the livestreams you can easily watch the replays on Periscope or YouTube. It is extremely fascinating and like a good documentary but without the fancy editing, just raw and real. Certainly something on my bucket list to experience to real thing.
Living in Sydney his entire life, Geoff has always had a close eye on technology. Through school and immediately after, tech held his focus. Attending University later in life, Geoff began his IT career immediately after leaving high school and has been in the industry ever since. In his spare time he launched a YouTube channel focused on consumer tech that had millions of views. This led to work on community radio talking tech every week and has now stepped him into the studios of 2GB / 4BC every Saturday helping people with tech problems and reviewing the latest gadgets.
When Geoff is looking away from the screen he can be found holding a glass of red wine, spending time with friends and/or watching the Formula 1.
