Yes, it would be absolutely wonderful if we could get some more light on the Orpen and Satara waterholes at night :thumbs_up:

Pretty please :gflower: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Hi Danie :D :D

Just wondering if there's any chance we could get some more light on the cams at night?

The old bulbs gave us much clearer images of animals at the back of the waterhole :thumbs_up:

I agree Melph68....the new light system isn't as good as the old one....the view isn't very clear and the animals aren't very visible... :wall:

The Orpen waterhole spotlight isn't in the right angle the angle is to low.....it can't reach the other side of the waterhole.... :wall:

Or new spotlight can't provide enough light to give us the opportunity to post nice sightings during the night :evil:

Good morning All :gflower:

Hope you all doing well this morning.

We are aware of the Orpen webcam being down and our technicians are working to resolve the issue.

With regard to the ADDO webcam. We are hoping to re-install the new camera by the end of next week.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best Regards,

Could it be possible to tilt the floodlight at Orpen Webcam so we can get a better view of the opposite side of the waterhole....it seems to me that the floodlight is back in it's original position. :pray: :hmz:

The quality of the live stream seems to be unclear during the nighttime....does the internet(connection) cause this problem or is it some other technical issue that causes this problem? :hmz:


Thank you so much for providing us the opportunity to be able to view LIVE footage from our beloved SANParks Webcams! :thumbs_up: :clap:
