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:
