Funnily, it's only out of focus when the cam is zoomed out. :think:

I hope the Satara webcam autofocus (which was not so auto since Saturday :redface: ) problem has been resolved (on wide angles). I have rebooted the webcam and reset the focus to auto... Let's hope the autofocus is truly auto after dark too at wide angles now!

Happy camming!

Please note that Orpen Webcam is not visible because the data line to Orpen Rest Camp is down. This means the data from the webcam can't reach the webcam server. The telecoms company is working on the problem. No ETA could be given at this stage by the telecoms company.

Good night from Pretoriuskop Restcamp in Kruger National Park after a flash visit to Kruger National Park from North to South since Sunday..

Yes DB, I am afraid i dont want to leave for Pretoria again tomorrow! I avoided the webcams' views on purpose! The lense might have cracked :wink: You might have seen an arm or ladder or some movement...

It is always an experience to be back in Kruger Park or any other national park; each one is very special but Kruger will always feel like 'home' :D
