Jumbo,

We are very happy with the results of the camera used and it would work perfectly for what we want to use it. The ones or the one I bought doesn’t work with a flash but infra red. You do get those which work with a flash and from what we have seen using the flash camera the animals doesn’t run away.

Send me an email and i can forward you more about the specs etc.

If we could find the one cam which the hyena stole it would have some great images on it. I have been very busy the last few days so please bear with me I will get the pics up again. I’m just looking at putting together a type of camouflage where the camera will go into and then out to the waterholes where guest and animal cannot detect it.

Cheers

Hey KG, after you have retrieved the 'hyena cam' why not bring it along of the Forum eco trail and let's see what beasts wander through camp at night.....

BB,

I still have my own cam which I will take on the Forum 4x4 trail; it would make for some great footage. Maybe we can catch people with traditional weapons which hasn’t been declared :roll:

Would be great to see who and what walks around at night.

Morning all,

I haven’t had time to take out the camera trap the last week or two. We are busy constructing a makeshift termite mount which we will hide the camera in when we will start placing it out at different waterholes so that it is not that visible to guests or look unnatural to the animals. Hopefully it would be finished by Friday and then we can start putting it out.

KG

Hi KG

icurrie and I were in KTP in May this year and we had Hyena around the huts at Grootkolk 2 nights in a row. I managed to get some very low quality video through a nightvision scope/recorder we were trying out but it got me thinking, therefore i have been researching 'camera traps' for the last couple of months before i go out to buy one for our next trip to KTP next year.
I was intending fixing it to a posts under a hut or the small fence around the cooking area at one or other of the wilderness camps, as this subject has taken off and got alot of peoples attention i was wondering if you would consider allowing any of us with one of these cameras to place it further out from the huts? say fix it to the tree overlooking the waterhole at Grootkolk for example - with the camp rangers help/guidence ofcourse :pray:
The price for allowing us (me) to do this would be i/we would happily download any photos and video we manage to get as we exit the park at 2R, therefore increasing the amount of data for your research.

well its an idea - what do you think? sorry i'm not in a position to donate a camera to you but well done who ever it was

Russ

by the way icurrie says i have too much stuff anyway but i won't tell her if you don't :naughty:

@Russ,

Unfortunately I have to advise you that it would not be possible to put up such a cam at any waterhole/tree or rocks.

If you do put up such a cam onto the fence or post it would be on your own risk and SANParks-KTP would not and couldn’t be held responsible for any loss what so ever.

Hope it helps
