Some feedback on the lighting issues at the KNP Webcams (Satara and Orpen):

  • Orpen Webcam: Flood Light angle
    I have contacted my colleagues @ Orpen to re-align the flood light as I suspect a four legged friend or a heavy feathered friend adjusted the flood light's angle a bit. This causes a lack of proper lighting on the water hole itself. This will be fixed soon!
  • Satara Webcam: Flood Light intermittent:
    I have also contacted my colleagues @ Satara to check the flood light at the Satara webcam which goes on and off. I suspect the automatic day/night switch that switches the light on and off automatically. Hospitality Manager at Satara confirmed they'll look into it.

Thanks for your patience!
