Chris Erasmus is bringing you a live safari!
Freelance WildEarth presenter Chris Erasmus has a desirable job. For three hours in the morning and four hours every afternoon, he’s in the bush exploring and adventuring while taking viewers on an authentic safari unfolding as he goes. It’s all happening live and entirely spontaneously. ]
“We are essentially guiding guests from wherever they are in the world,” says Chris. “The cameramen and presenters are on foot in the bush, so there’s a lot of focus on smaller creatures. But we aim to show viewers the broader ecology, from insects to elephants. It’s an opportunity to track elephants and other large mammals from your couch.”
As a professional safari guide, Chris started his career in 1999 and has guided guests across the Greater Kruger National Park, Timbavati, Waterberg, Klaserie, Kalahari and more.
“It has been a great journey, and I am still at it,” he says. I love having guests in person, as you can see their instant reactions, but TV has its unique vibe and is addictive and fun with a regular and dedicated following. I love walking, and I love trails,” says Chris, “so I truly love doing WildEarth and taking guests viewing from all over the world along with me.”
