Ol Pejeta From Above – On Safari With a DJI Phantom Quadcopter

Rhino and quadcopter-1

Ben represented the Drone Journalism Lab in Kenya during March 2014 while collaborating with the African SkyCAM drone journalism project.  He flew a DJI Phantom quadcopter in the field, and the collaboration resulted in content demonstrating the utility of UAVs for journalism in Africa and beyond.  The stories and content Ben co-produced were published on the African SkyCAM website and across the Radio Africa / Star Publications platforms.

This video project is a collaboration between CCTV Africa and African SkyCAM.  The footage shows the landscape and wildlife found inside Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy, and includes some of the most thrilling footage I’ve ever captured while flying a UAV.
