Still the same problem of frames not changing today... but also the times underneath the webcam images seem to be all over the place:

but I'll say it anyway: The cams are stuck (at 12:22).

:lotsocoffee: Here is for hoping they'll come back soon again.


We are indeed aware of the problem! :redface:

Webcams updating again! Happy camming!

Danie wrote:The Satara webcam has been down since yesterday because of the telecom company's major trunk failure on one of their links to Kruger National Park ((Skukuza) affecting all our online systems in most of Kruger National Park, including the webcams. The timing of this line outage could not have been worse - peak season in Kruger National Park!

Please accept our apologies for that! :redface: The telecom company is working very hard to repair the link to Kruger National Park.


Fortunately this outage is not affecting the whole of Kruger National Park; only certain camps/gates are affected but it is still bad!

Don't think so :naughty: ...my computer time is on the spot and the cams are behind.... :whistle:

Maybe a slight turning of the earth causing this..... :hmz:

Is Orpen Cam stuck in a fixed angle....or off rotation mode? :hmz:

Time is still wrong on the cams :wall: ...about 1 minute behind...... :whistle:


Ahhh, you noticed! Well spotted! We are busy with a data line switch for new services to come :wink: Please be patient! I have switched the touring off for the testing and switching we are doing...lots of parties involved, IP's changing, etc...

Will keep you updated!

All the changes on the configs and data lines were successful! The data line to Orpen has failed (not related to changes we have done). The fault has been logged with our telecoms service provider! We hope to have Orpen back online again very soon!

You will not notice any visible changes on the webcams but a lot has changed in the background today...
