Orpen Cam 2010-03-25

Timelapse of Orpen Webcam. Shortly before 1am a hippo comes wandering in, and then the night is quiet. During the day herds of impala and blue wildebeest pay visits, as well as zebra, and some elephant bulls. After dark the leopard comes in twice, a hyaena just strolls past, and an elephant herd with babies comes in, but departs rather in a hurry.

When you cammers watch these videos you must remember that they, like the rest of this site, is first and foremost part of advertising/marketing efforts for SANParks. Thus, when you watch and enjoy them, send the links to the Youtube videos on to other people so tehy, too, can enjoy them, thus spreading the positive message of Kruger further.

Typing this I realise that the links are not easily accessibly. I'll go to all the posts and add the links to be easily copied and pasted for email purposes.

Oh wow, this is incredible! :thumbs_up: Can you maybe post a link every time that a new clip is on?

I see that it gets hardly any hits and it must be because few people know about it. It would be nice if Sanparks can maybe put a link on the webcam page that will take you to the youtube videos. :wink:

wildheart, when there's new videos that are to be kept, I do post a link here.

The process is as follows:
- SANParks collects the pics during the day;
- somewhere around 03H00 in the morning an automated process picks up the photos and put them together in a video - if there's enough that is;
- the process uploads the video to Youtube;
- now HERE comes the IMPORTANT part: :mrgreen: somewhere I take a look at the uploaded videos, and decide which to keep and which to delete again;
- the ideal is that I do this every day so that videos that don't have enough going on don't stay there for too long;
- the videos I think are good enough :roll: I leave and place a link on here.

(So, SANParks does all the behind the scenes work, I do the little bit of upfront visible work, and I get all the credit! Works out lovely, don't you think? :tongue: )

Unfortunately there was a problem somewhere and none were uploaded for a couple of days, and then, when the problem was sorted, 30 odd were uploaded in on go. Unfortunately I've not been able to work through them all yet, so there are videos on there that must actually come off.

Orpen Cam 2010-05-29

Timelapse of Orpen Webcam. The usual suspects of impala, elephant (including a herd with young), blue wildebeest, warthog, baboon, hyaena and jackal all put in their appearance. But the highlights are the wild dogs that provide us with a glimpse around 16H53, and then the lions that visit for an extended period from around 21H15, and then again just before closing time when one can see them clearly.

Satara Cam 2010-06-13

Timelapse of Satara Webcam. Quite an active day with a diverse number of visitors. Hyaena, an owl and elephant at night, as well as some buffalo and blue wildebeest. During the day the herds of zebra, blue wildebeest and impala are interspersed with buffalo, giraffe and warthog.

Orpen Cam 2010-06-14

Timelapse of Orpen Webcam. Though never in big numbers, apart from the impala, this zoomed in view of the one side of the waterhole shows a diverse number of animals visiting. Duiker, Elephant, Hyaena, Jackal, Impala, Buffalo, Blue wildebeest, Warthog, and Zebra all show themselves, some only for fleeting glimpses, others at length.

Another one to add. Hopefully tomorrow the weekend's ones may be there with lions!

Nossob Cam 2010-07-22

Timelapse of Nossob Webcam. From just before 08H30 to around noon the blue wildebeest are in an out, being visible most of the time. Jackal are also regular visitors throughout the day and night. Oryx and springbok also come with darkness and tonight the brown hyaena, normally just a dark smudge, is quite visible in the light somebody shines from the hide around 19H30. Spotted hyaena also show themselves.

DQ, they have been back a couple of times. Unfortunately, due to the panning of the webcams, there are no time-lapse videos of Orpen and Addo - only Satara and Nossob are now made into videos.

Didn't update HERE for a while, and I see that out of sight is out of mind... Will be adding a couple.

Satara Cam 2010-10-02

Timelapse of Satara Webcam. The hyaenas are out and about and swimming the whole day, often putting in an appearance. Further there's blue wildebeest, impala, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, elephant, warthog and jackal.

Satara Cam 2010-10-11

Timelapse of Satara Webcam. Today's highlights are the elephnats that drop by quite often. Then there's the jackal and hyaenas, as well as numerous impala. Blue wildebeest, zebra, warthog and eagle also show themselves.
