Hey all,
my 2nd sighting of a jackal on the Live cam.
I had to share it as it was too fast for the other one.

I love this!!

We've just discovered the live video camera this weekend. Thank you so much. It's really awesome to be able to switch over to it when you see anything on the still camera. We watched some elephants, a warthog and buffalo at various times. In fact I just love watching the wind blowing through the bush and the water rippling.

That was one of the most special moments - I have just watched the elephants in the waterhole. It was quite funny that the elephants seemed to move with the camera so we could watch him (?) walk through the water and get out the other side. Incredible how they both disappeared into the bush so quickly.

Thank you so much to whoever organised this.

This essentially means that you will be able to view the live streaming at the following link: http://www.sanparks.org/interact/multimedia/videocams/videos.php?cam=orpen, but please be considerate of the fact that this is a beta test and that technical difficulties may still be experienced. Viewing the live video stream of the webcam requires a lot of bandwidth and requires a high-speed Internet line. Should you not be able to optimally view the video stream, we suggest that you view the still webcam images: http://www.sanparks.org/webcams/

We ask that you be so kind as to inform us of any issues you might experience at the following email address:
webmaster@sanparks.org

Also, please don't hesitate to let us hear the things you like about the live Orpen webcam too! :)

:D Just great. :thumbs_up: Sound would enhance the experience. :wink:
Thank you everyone involve for making the live web cam possible. :D

The Lion was a short visit, a young male or female.
I looked at the time on my computer, it was 21:17 Finnish time. It is 20:17 CAT.
:D
