The South African National Parks (SANParks) currently has 4 working webcams based in Kruger (Satara and Orpen webcams), Kgalagadi ( Nossob webcam) and Addo Elephant NP (Addo webcam).

These webcams are extremely successful in allowing our visitors a first hand view at our myriad of animals that visit the watering holes around our beautiful parks.

However, in order for us to continue this amazing service to our many visitors on a regular basis these webcams need to undergo maintenance where costs are incurred.

This is where donations are most welcome for the upkeep and maintenance of the webcams as it will definitely allow for a longer and successful "lifespan" - continuing to provide fascinating images to our visitors.

Donations can be made here

I have posted my intention to donate te price of a big mac each month. If lots of us do this, it should generate a stream of funds. :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Like many, I am feeling the general financial melt down. I would like to donate though and this is one way that I can do so in comfort. The webcams have brought so many people to Kruger and added such value.

Is it ok if I go through the VHR's?

I am happy to donate, because the webcams give me joy.

I am happy to donate because, I want to make a difference.

I am happy to donate, because every cent not used on non essentials, can be used on poaching, training, research and the vital things needed for conservation.

One day I will die and nothing will be going with me. The joy of giving, the joy the forum has given me, that can never be taken away.

Love is not about balancing cheque books, it is not about fair, it is not even about justice; it is simply about recognising value and honouring that value.

Tomorrow, I am going to look at the price of a Big Mac.
