Wow this is amazing! Is it a normal video camera or is it like a dashboard cam?

Well done, Jannie. Excellent idea. Just too bad one cannot feel the corrugated road from underneath :lol: People need to go and experience it themselves.

Hello KG,

What a great idea! :clap:
Now we can go on a game drive even when we are at home :D

That AWC was quick :big_eyes:

How did you succeed in making the film so "smooth"? Considering the bumpy roads, I would have thought the film must be much more "bumpy" too. (At least that's the case when I film while driving).

Waiting for more :popcorn:

Hi there Nina!,

The whole clip was quite long and the road was corrugated at some places. I needed to edit the clip and use the parts where the road wasn’t that bad. I will try and bring you the feeling of being on a game drive through the Go-Pro.

I will do my best to upload as frequently as possible. The problem is that we might take 3 hours footage and this has to be edited to about 3 minutes. Will do my best.....promise
