Cammers, I am sorry about the flood light's bulb at Satara webcam - seems to have blown :redface: .

My colleagues at Satara will attend to it soon (well not tonight...that would be a bit dangerous!). But tomorrow!

Fortunately it was working while the lions were active at the waterhole the previous 2 nights!

Thanks for your understanding and patience!

The zooming and angle of the Satara webcam has always been a bit of a thorny issue as it is difficult to please all cammers and forumites :hmz: BUT I have created a poll where our valued forumites and cammers may vote on this!
Find the poll here and vote/air your valuable view! :think:

Good news! The bulb of the flood light at Satara waterhole was replaced this morning! The replacement could not take place the previous evening or the previous day as the lions were always in close proximity and it was a bit dangerous to replace the flood light then :naughty:

Thanks to JV and his team at Satara! :thumbs_up:

Happy camming!
