What a shame to log on for my midnight shift and see all the cams down :(

The Addo cam still looks to be online but there is no light.
Is there any chance we could get light on the waterhole for the whole night? Pretty please :pray: :pray:

Not urgent, but can you please submit a request for the lens at Nossob to be wiped clean. There is a blur especially when the focus is on the right-hand side of the waterhole.

Our technicians at Orpen confirmed that the power supply to the camera at the waterhole was destroyed by lightning/power surge and must be replaced. Let's hope there is no damage to the Orpen webcam itself as it is not possible to test without the power supply which was fried. :pray:

We hope to have it online ASAP again. Expect a delay in the repair as the new power supply has to be procured and shipped from Gauteng and then installed.

Looks like Nossob has taken the day off. It has been down since I woke up this morning.
