Dear Elaine

Yes, it was a relief when comms link to Orpen was restored (temporarily on a generator at repeater site) but at least Orpen can communicate again and the webcam's images are being relayed again.

Regards
Danie, KNP

Hi Cerinthe,

Tou're right, those definitely were warthog in the background. We counted 6 of them. Two were right underneath the camera until the buffalo seem to frighten it away. Did you notice the Marabou stork in the background?

No, I didn't see those under the cam :cry: But it was fun to watch the buffalos, at the moment there is a impala in the background, at least I think it is one

It's funny, people always go on about lions and leopards, it's great seeing them I agree, but buffalo and elephants are my favourites. Buffalo always come across as dignified old gentlemen even when having fun. I also noticed only one impala. :D

Same here, I love buffalo. They always look so much at peace, it's difficult to think of them as dangerous. And then, baby ellies are just about the cutest of all :)

Hi!
I'm sure the guys at Kruger won't mind if I tell you about another webcam which makes for interesting viewing. It's placed at a waterhole in the Kwa Maritane Game Reserve in the Pilanesberg area. A nice feature of this one - you are able to send images to the website as you watch the animals which are then featured in a highlight package for that day. Look at "wildcam.com".
