To Zoom in or Zoom out?
SANParks gets a lot of contradictory requests regarding the webcam zoom. Some people prefer to see the whole waterhole while others want to be able to see the animals on the cameras at a closer range. Unless someone monitors the webcams day and night and makes adjustments accordingly (a service which we cannot provide), there is no way we can meet all preferences, all of the time.
Our compromise is to have someone who adjusts the cameras in and out from time to time in order to make all webcam watchers happy at least some of the time. We hope you understand and continue to enjoy the webcams whether they're zoomed in or out, and share your highlights with us on the forums.
The Addo, Satara and Nossob webcams were bought with funds raised exclusively by the SANParks forum members.
