Hi all, I was just wondering where the cam at Addo is? Is it at the waterhole at the main camp or elsewhere in the park? We'll be there for the long weekend and given all the activity over the last few days I want to know where to be!!

Thank you!

How many different waterholes on Addo cam?

Unread post by Trish van Zyl » Wed Sep 29, 2010 1:40 pm

I am a bit confused about how many different waterholes the webcam monitors. After months of watching and not seeing anything at all, I decided Addo was a bit over rated but must admit in the last few weeks have been rewarded - so there really are elephants in Addo. :D

Hi Trish :yaya:

I'm sure it's just the one big waterhole, and the cam spans across it (as it is impossible to fit all the water in the same picture).

I haven't been to Addo for many years, so honestly can't remember if I've got this right. No doubt a lovely cammer will correct me if I'm wrong 8)

Hi Trish and Mel,

it's just one waterhole - we were in addo last year and it's the waterhole you can watch from the hide and the bungalow. It just seems to be big at the cams - but if you watch it live it's much smaller :D

Hi Danie!

It looks as if you programmed Nossob cam to zoom in during the dark hours. Is that correct? And if so, would it be possible to maybe prolong this a bit in the morning hours, let's say till 6 - 6.30 am until it's full light? :mrgreen:

Hi Danie :D
I concur with Lionspoon :thumbs_up: I think it would be great if Nossob was zoomed in a wee bit more so we can see the animals better 8) 8)

I did not read or search the previous discussions regarding my request. Would it be possible to supply us with the respective Web Cam co-ordinates so that we can Google Earth it? This would give us a good indications of the surroundings. Thank you.

Corprid

Herewith the co-ords for Orpen andf Satara Webcams.

Orpen - 24°28'29.38"S 31°23'36.06"E

Satara - 24°23'36.55"S 31°46'51.07"E

The Orpen view doesn't have much detail, but Satara's you can virtually see the pole that the cams mounted to, well almost

Enjoy

My apologies if this has already been asked before... I've searched and not found anything yet. How much does a webcam cost? The cams in use are obviously better than those we use at home... is the price of the cams one of the main limiting factors to others being added? Or is it more a case of infrastructure such as power/internet connection etc?

Don't know what a cam cost, but I believe that the cost of the associated infrastructure, especially bandwidth, is the biggest cost. I believe that the webcam itself it probably the smallest cost.
