I agree Mischief,

It's sad to see the most productive cams(Orpen and Nossob) being offline for such a long time.....

I really hope they can fix the problems soon...

I know the cams are in the bush and images may not always show due to weather etc. :)

However is there perhaps a problem with the Satara cam ? ?
As the past three days or so it has been very erratic, freezing on images or cam going down intermittently!

Thanks for the alert, Trrp :gflower:
I have also seen Satara cam going down, let's keep our eyes on it and please report back tomorrow so that I can alert Phokela.

This is the visual reception at Addo Cam for just about the entire night.I am not sure whether it is just a fingerprint that only shows up at night or if there is a problem with the lens ( :pray: :pray: :pray: this is not the case) otherwise we may only be down to 1 webcam.Please would one of the Mods ask them to look into the matter.

We are traveling to SA later this year from the U.S. to visit several of your amazing parks over four weeks. This will be our fifth trip over 37 years. We will be visiting Addo for the first time, specifically because of the webcam there. Webcams are a good investment for Sanparks, even if you cannot track your return on investment directly.

Lovely to hear that the webcam inspired you to visit Addo NP, Toeser :D
Do wish you a wonderful time there and hope that you will be sharing some of your experiences and sightings on the forums with us, when you return.

Nossob: we are hoping, wont be much longer :pray:

Orpen: the procurement is still in process; and because of the very specific specs of the cam needed, taking a bit longer.

The past couple of nights I've seen Satara online before I leave home for work, but then when I get to work the cam is offline and I have nothing to watch :( :( :(

Is the cam being turned off at midnight now??

Please could someone check what's going on so at least there is one cam to watch :pray: :gflower:

Hi all,
Anybody else experiencing problems with the live stream of the cams today and yesterday? The still pictures work fine, but for the live stream I only get the black window and the moving Circle ...
Just want to know if the problem is my computer or something with the cams...
Thx!!!
