MultiChoice adds WildEarth for DStv Access subscribers. Jump onboard the largest safari vehicle on earth

Get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey into the heart of our continent’s wilderness. WildEarth (DStv channel 183) is a popular wildlife channel joining the DStv Access package from August 15, 2023. Offering daily authentic LIVE and interactive wildlife experiences in your living room, viewers will be able to connect with nature like never before.

WildEarth stands as a trailblazer as a global brand that is available around the world on 27 different platforms. It transcends the traditional wildlife documentary format by recreating the thrilling experience of being on a safari vehicle in remote locations. Instead of relying on dramatic animal behaviour, it captures the serendipitous moments of unscripted magic that happen when you’re on a safari.

"With WildEarth, we’re adding even more value for the DStv Access viewer," says Georginah Machiridza, Executive Head of General Entertainment Channels. "Going on safari is an amazing opportunity and the wildlife experiences on this channel allows viewers to ‘visit’ amazing destinations from the comfort of their couch. It’s about making African animals accessible to African people.”

Imagine yourself bouncing along the savannah all from the comfort of your home. You can even ask the guide a question and get it answered in real time.

The WildEarth channel offers a golden-hued line-up that includes:


Safari LIVE: Sunrise: Join a real live safari at the break of dawn, where the stories of Africa's most iconic animals unfold before your eyes.

Safari LIVE: Sunrise repeat: Catch up on the sunrise safari if you missed the live show.

Safari LIVE: Sunset: Witness the African wilderness come alive as the sun sets, and the wild cats embark on their nocturnal quests. All completely LIVE and unscripted.

WildEarth is excited to be launching on DStv Access,” says Emily Wallington, Executive Producer Non-Live Content.” WildEarth not only provides a window into Africa's majestic wildlife but redefines the safari experience itself and we look forward to inviting DStv viewers onboard the largest safari vehicle in Africa.”

As the pioneer of authentic, immersive wildlife experiences, WildEarth's debut on DStv Access is set to redefine the way we connect with the wild. Prepare to traverse vast savannahs, witness breath-taking sunsets, and witness the majesty of Africa's creatures—all at the touch of a button.
