Greetings from England
Is there any plan for a webcam to be installed at Addo.

Hi JDW!

Yes there is - and I believe the trenches for the cables to the camera are being dug at present. So, in the not too distant future, there will be a webcam at Addo 8)

Morning DB, Hi JDW. Hope its not too cold in England.... We are sweating here near Addo.

Hey DB, please give us some more info,

I have been trying to find out about donating towards it for a while but have had no success. Prob did not try hard enough.
Can you give more details please.
As much as possible.
Thanks

Hi Apple,

The cam has been bought - and paid for from funds raised via the website 8)

It is going to be placed at the waterhole at the main camp.

I like what I'm hearing. Have seen some nice game at the Main Camp waterhole at night - like the Rhino and her calf at 3 am.

Is there a formal process to get donations for it DB?

Hi lirritma - there was an option here on the website to donate towards the cam via the approved channel, but as enough funds were raised to cover the cost, SANParks removed the option.

I have heard so much about this rhino and calf visiting the waterhole.... now just to wake at 3am :lol:

I must say there is always some activity around the waterhole. Last time I was in Addo, a herd of buffalo spent ages there.

I cannot wait for it to be up and going.

I am sure SANParks and Danie will inform us as soon as they have a firm date for going 'live' :dance:

Dear all,

As the distance between the waterhole and the reception in Addo is too big, we cannot go wireless there. So we are busy digging trenches for fiber...

Will try to get the latest on the happenings on the ground and let you know by next week.

Hi all,

It is going slowly on the ground, as the digging of the trenches is to serve another purpose of the infrastructure upgrade as well as the webcam...

I'm sorry it is taking so long. :(

We'll persevere.
