An African safari is on the travel bucket list for many adventurers. But for those who have yet to find their way to the jungles of South Africa, Nat Geo WILD has got the next best thing: Safari Live.

Now in its second year, and back by popular demand, Safari Live brings the African bush into the living rooms of Nat Geo WILD viewers. Throughout the channel’s “Big Cat Week,” which premiered on Friday, hosts Pieter Pretorius and Hayden Turner will take audiences on a live tour of South Africa’s Sabi Sands Park, where they’ll come face to face lions, giraffes, elephants, leopards, impalas, and the many other animals who call this area home.

While you can watch all the live action throughout the rest of "Big Cat Week" at 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. ET, or online, here’s a sneak peek of what you might see, courtesy of Pretorius and Nat Geo WILD.
