if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis. if you have hepatitis b, do not stop taking biktarvy without talking to your doctor. common side effects were diarrhea, nausea, and headache. if you're hiv-positive, keep loving who you are, inside and out. ask your doctor if biktarvy is right for you. ♪
♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: our next guest is a a safari guide and photographer who co-owns a wildlife travel company in south africa called wild eye. please welcome marlon du toit. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: thank you for coming on the show. >> thank you for having me. absolute privilege. >> jimmy: now, you grew up in south africa and live there now? >> i did, yes. i grew up in the northern parts of south africa, in a small town called phalaborwa. i just grew up with a love for nature. i'd spend weekends in kruger national park and my dad was a a keen photographer. so, that's where i got the love of photography for, and this love of nature and what i do today. >> jimmy: wait 'til you guys see these photos that -- maybe explain what your company is, wild eye.
>> yeah. so, wild eye, we're based in johannesburg in south africa. and i think what makes us a a little bit different is that you're dealing with africans in africa. it might sound silly but it's people that know the lay of the land. we know the areas we travel to. we know the camps. we know when's the best time to visit different places, and i think that's what made us -- what differentiates us, and makes us a little bit special in that sense. so, when you come on safari with us, you're getting people that truly know the place. >> jimmy: and you end up with amazing photographs. >> absolutely. you know, we know the best places to visit during the best times of year. and our slogan and what we believe in, is to change the way you see the world. that's something at the core of our business. and that's truly what i think we're able to do. >> jimmy: where did you -- where would you go to see this? or knew how perfect this shot was going to be? >> yeah, so that's in zimbabwe in a place called mana pools, which is very, very dear to me. >> jimmy: it looks like a a painting. >> absolutely. and it's kind of a right moment. and i think what we love doing is getting our guests to that right moment. you know, making sure that they see the best thing at the right
time of day. that kind of light, you don't just get any time of day, right? >> jimmy: no. >> and actually taken on foot walking with these buffalos, as well, outside of a vehicle, and so that adds to the experience. which is something very important on a safari. >> jimmy: how would you even get a shot like this? >> captured in brazil. yeah. all about timing. and something that we focus on on our safaris is photographic tuition. and we draw a lot of photographers. that is split second timing. a little bit before, a little bit after and it wouldn't have had such a big impact. >> jimmy: yeah. do you have a -- i mean, look at this. what even is this? i don't even know -- [ laughter ] >> it's a beautiful animal, right? >> jimmy: gorgeous. >> and it's something that few people have ever seen. this is probably the third or fourth time in my whole career or life that i've seen one. it's a black bellied pangolin. and something that i love doing in my photography is shedding light on animals such as this, which is -- many people don't know this -- the most trafficked mammal in the world today is this, is a a pangolin. and you think rhinos and
elephants which are also endangered. but this is in fact the number one animal trafficked today. so, part of what i love doing is shedding light on this and being able tell a conservation story. not just share a beautiful photograph, you know? >> jimmy: yeah, absolutely. yeah, i mean, when you see these animals and really see them, you'd probably think twice. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: do you ever get scared when you're taking these photos? >> fearless, absolutely fearless. >> jimmy: get -- are you? [ laughter ] i get scared looking at some of these photos. i wouldn't go near a pangolin. i don't know what that think would do to me. i don't know how it reacts. >> no, no. >> jimmy: am i safe when i'm with you? are we in a jeep? paint the picture for me. >> yeah, for the most part you're in a jeep. in a safari vehicle. go driving about. there are some instances where you leave the vehicle, maybe approach animals on foot in certain particular destinations. not all of them. but for the most part you're pretty safe. and we look after you very well. >> jimmy: this one animal probably sticks in your brain the most. >> out of all the animals i've experienced and seen, it's not often that you connect with one animal that much. you see so many traveling as much as we do. >> jimmy: tell me, what's his
name. >> this guy, scar is his name. and he's a lion found in the masai mara in kenya. we spend a lot of time in the mara. and he's such a character. and his name is inspired by "the lion king," right. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and he fits the bill so much. and he's just a mean -- quite a a grumpy character, quite aggressive, but he's about 14 years old now, which is much older than male lions tend to get. and he's still dominant and still has a pride. and generally they only have a a pride from ages of, like, 7 to 10, and he's still at it. so, he's just a powerful, mean looking lion. and i love him so much that i got this tattoo of him on my arm. which is -- yeah, of scar. the exact same lion. [ audience aws ] one of my photographs. he's just a memorable lion. the most famous lion in africa without a doubt. >> jimmy: wow! >> unbelievable cat. >> jimmy: how do people find out more information about what you're doing? >> so, you can go to our website wild-eye.com, or you can find me on instagram. so, check me out on there.
