A wall is good news vinkie! You might get to see a few more interesting pics later this afternoon after we've had a chance to dip our toes in the sea. :mrgreen:
My current plan is to have the phone mounted on the front windscreen... hopefully in a way that will make it easy enough for us to pan around as needed. Then if there's anything special next to the side of the car we can hand hold it. As I said, I'm hoping to test that out a bit this afternoon so you should see some more interesting pics on the cam :wink:

And if anyone can think of other places on the forums where you'd like to spread the word that this will be happening on Mon/Tue/Wed then feel free... I'm a bit more confident now that it's actually going to work :dance: :dance:

Seeing that the cam will probably work, I'll pledge some more. :D

An eland sighting: 100 Rand
A lion sighting: 100 Rand
A bushpig sighting: 100 Rand
A not to be named sighting (a Bennett...): 100 Rand
(Cam shot pm'ed to me will do as proof :lol: )
A caracal sighting: 100 Rand

Please note, I'm not pledging for each sighting (I might go bankrupt...)
but as a one off. :wink:

The pressure is on, PJL. :whistle: :lol:

As I already made my monthly contribution of R200 to the VHR's for not a specific project I would like that JenB allocate my donation made on the 26th January 2012 to this project. :thumbs_up:

:lol: :lol:
Sure is getting darker now... that lovely purple hue in the sky.

Well we're very excited to see what we can find in Addo tomorrow. We still don't have a firm planned arrival time, but my guess is we'll be getting there sometime around 10am SA time, and I'll try to get the webcam running pretty much as soon as we're in the park :D

I'm really liking this idea of donations for sightings :lol: . I've been very fortunate on previous visits in that there are very few of the larger animals in the park that I haven't yet seen... but my kids are dying to see lion, so my donations for sightings list is as follows:
[*]Lion - R100
[*]Leopard R500
[*]Rh*** R300
[*]Civet R200
[*]Caracal R100

I'll pay for each one as well :shock:

Time to get packing and check the normal camera equipment... hope you all enjoy tomorrow whatever happens in terms of the technology. :thumbs_up:

Oh and one last thing - RonnieL suggested saving the images, and I've managed to tweak the webcam application so that it does just that... so maybe we can merge it into a video slideshow or something at a later date.

Cheers everyone :yaya:

:big_eyes: PJL, not only are you generous in terms of setting up that mobile cam
and paying for it - your pledges don't come cheap either. :lol:

I thought of leopard as well, but have never heard anybody reporting a sighting
of it, so I thought the mammal list for Addo was 'bogus' :tongue:

I'm with you on the the pledge for a leopard - 500 Rand it is. :thumbs_up:

Can't wait to get started! But I think it would be good if mites saved camshots
and posted them in here as well, even if you'll do a slide otherwise. Need to
convey some action (hopefully) inbetween. :wink:

Hope you'll have extraordinary sightings!!! :thumbs_up:

:yaya: LS,

Yes I would appreciate it if cammers can post onto this thread any sightings they catch :thumbs_up:

The Addo leopard is extremely elusive. I read up on some threads a while back, and although the greater Addo area (the main game area where we'll be entering is just part of the whole national park) has quite a few, apparently there is only thought to be one in the main game area. They can have large territories, so a single leopard in that area wouldn't be classed as uncommon, but unfortunately it really decreases our chances of seeing one. I think one was caught on some camera traps a year or 2 back... perhaps it's still around.

The biggest thank you goes to PJL, methinks! :clap: :clap: :clap:
I've been glued to the cam ever since it started this morning
(with minor breaks to do the necessary). This is an absolutely
amazing event! :thumbs_up:

I'll need to log off soon but will be back to enjoy the rest of today's safari. :dance:

*edit*: Forgot to ask - Ronnie could it be that parts of Addo don't have cell coverage?

If you get obscured pics like below (or even worse)

it sometimes helps just to refresh the page to get the whole
pic again, like here:
