Botswana on 60 Minutes
While they may not have the name-droppable fame of a George Clooney or Brangelina, Dereck and Beverly Joubert are celebrities in the safari community.
Filming, researching, and exploring Africa for over 25 years, these award-winning filmmakers from Botswana have 22 films to their credit, including the famed National Geographic film “Relentless Enemies,” about the precarious predator-prey relationship between the Cape buffalo and lion prides of a remote corner of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Their mission of wildlife conservation will soon be covered on CBS’ 60 Minutes program. After a week of shooting with correspondent Lara Logan and the 60 Minutes crew in Duba, Zarafa, and Selinda areas of Botswana, the 12-minute segment will air in March or early April 2012 (exact date is unknown at this point). With a reach of 30 million U.S. viewers, plus many more via the internet, this program promises to be a great opportunity to highlight current challenges facing Africa’s big cats. We hope you’ll watch, and perhaps be inspired to plan a journey of exploration too. Boundless Journeys offers low-impact, high-quality safaris to all of the places shown in the story.
