So another trip to Addo seems to be on the cards :dance:

This time I'm hoping to do a day trip with the same mobile cam running plus a new 'close-up' cam... hopefully you'll be able to see some of the smaller or more distant creatures more clearly :thumbs_up:

As yet I haven't finalised when the day trip will be. But it'll be sometime between tomorrow (Saturday 11th) and Thursday 16th Feb. We're trying to keep our plans quite flexible for meeting up with friends here, but as soon as I have a firm date I'll let you all know.

Let's hope there are some exciting sightings

Another 200 Rand it is, if we get another mobile cam day in Addo from you. :thumbs_up:



Feel free to join us, dear cam watchers! :mrgreen:

:lol: I think, I do. :thumbs_up:

But I wasn't sure, if you didn't want to announce it yourself. :wink:
I'll take it as a 'no' and make it public myself:

Matthys pledged another 110 Rand for another Addo Mobile Webcam day. :dance:

Thank you! :k

Quick update... time is running out a bit for our holiday here in SA :(
So, due to time constraints I will be aiming for a morning in Addo rather than the whole day. Current plan is Wednesday morning :dance: :dance:

Also, if you take a look at http://www.leylandfamily.com/webcam.aspx you will now see that I have added a 'Close-up Cam'. This will be running from the photos taken on my camera... I've written some software that allows the camera to transfer images direct to my laptop, then resize and upload. Hopefully you'll all be able to see some of the smaller animals in the park, or closer views of the larger ones :thumbs_up:

So... Wednesday as the gates open at 7am is the current plan. The only other possibility might be tomorrow morning, but I will confirm this evening

:popcorn:

All confirmed for Wednesday morning :dance: :dance:

Do we have any requests for routes? You can check the park map here http://www.sanparks.org/images/parks/maps/main-game-colchester-area-map.jpg - I'll be entering through the Colchester entrance again by Camp Matyholweni, and I'm quite open to ideas of where to head from there :wink:

Let's hope the lion are still around and keen to show themselves. Yesterday, friends of ours saw the same brothers we saw on the previous trip :clap:

Despite adding an extra cam to the live cam page (http://www.leylandfamily.com/webcam.aspx), I haven't made any alterations to the way the site refreshes images... so although it should refresh automatically, in reality I would recommend doing a manual refresh regularly :thumbs_up:

What would mites like to see up close? Personally I'd like a nice close sighting of Eland. They often tend to stay well away from the tracks in Addo, so I'm hoping for some a bit closer this time :D

Hi PJL :D :D

This is such exciting news - another Leyland family Addo adventure :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Unfortunately I'll be sound asleep over the other side of the world, so I will miss the live cam feeds :doh:

Nonetheless, I'll donate R200 for the mobile webcam project :thumbs_up:

Plus I pledge:

R200 for a close-up eland sighting
R200 for a close-up caracal sighting
R200 for a lion sighting
R500 for a leopard sighting 8) 8) 8)

Have a fabulous day :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
