That is great news about the new Addo cam being ready soon :dance: :dance: :dance:

Also I second vinkie's sentiments :thumbs_up:
The Orpen light bulb doesn't seem strong enough for clear viewing of animals at the back of the waterhole :doh:

And just imagine how good it would be to have high definition video on the live cams one day :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Hi there, just wondering if someone might be able to adjust the angle of the spotlight at Orpen for us :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:
It seems to have dropped again and now the back of the waterhole is too dark to see anything.

Also, just a question about Addo cam. The spotlight goes off around midnight so it is pitch black until the morning sunrise lights up the waterhole again.
Is the spotlight run on a generator now and turned off overnight? We used to get some great sightings throughout the night on the old cam :thumbs_up:

It would be wonderful if we could get light all through the night :gflower: :gflower: :gflower:

Thank you for bring this to our attention.

We will send our maintenance guys to check and fix the lighting at the waterholes. :)

Hi there,

I have logged a call for this to be "reset"

Thanks for alerting us
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.
