We have received some bad news around Addo Webcam from the technician who was at the site :cry: .

It looks like the webcam at Addo has been damaged as it does not even switch on. It is difficult to assess what the problem is and the webcam is on its way to be evaluated and tested as all basic tests on site pointed to the webcam itself.

We'll keep you up to date with the progress as there might be involvement from our insurance company as well.

Thanks for your patience! Keep on camming as the webcams at Satara, Orpen and Nossob are still alive and well! :)

I hope we are getting closer to having the cam back. I miss seeing the elephants. They are seen so rarely at the other water holes.

The old webcam was hit by lightning and the challenge was to procure an outdoor webcam with very specific requirements. It turned out this equipment will need to be imported for us, and the ETA we have been given is only the end of June.

Dear Mites,

Just to let you know that the equipment arrived yesterday.

Danie is going to set it up for us tomorrow, and then we'll ship it to Addo park. :dance:

Hi Addo fans ...

Just an update so you all in the loop, we have received the new camera - we are in the process of sorting it out and configuring it - but with a new version of equipment we have teething issues and need to iron those out ... we are currently configuring it to work on the network with some magic from the network guys ...

We HOPE to have it finalised and shipped to Addo this week, but that is not a promise at this point.

I will update again as i have more information

And i guess the cat is out the bag - as you guys can see - the addo cam is streaming stills and live footage of a SANParks logo to the world.

We will pack it up and ship it tomorrow and hopefully have ellies on it by Monday!!
