    African water hole webcam

    It's a live webcam of an african water hole. They are about +8 hours from eastern standard time. Right now I'm seeing Zebras and Cape Buffalo. This isn't one of those halloween tricks where something pops up, it's for real. I've been watching it off and on for about 2 hours now.

    It gets better They'll have cape buffalo, my mom saw a lioness drink for about 5 minutes at the waterhole and you see a lot of birds. It's crazy how noisy at night it is though.

    It's the wind. I heard the same thing the first time and it was just the wind through the mic. At night you really hear some wierd stuff.

    Found this on the web, this is where the camera is located, Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, in South Africa. Not much has happened since I started watching, but I will keep checking back. Pretty cool especially if you keep the sound on. Ahh the sound of nature. Go to wavelit.com to see more web cams of nature.

    Sorry I didn't add this sooner:



    Location and subject matter

    Nkoro pan is located in the North Eastern corner of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, and about 1km (0.62 miles) from the unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park. The Pan is situated at the bottom of an open plain, about 250m from Nkoro Bush Lodge and is frequented by a number of resident animals, in particular is the resident herd of wildebeest and impala and a family of warthogs that can often been seen drinking and wallowing in the mud at the pan. The camera is located on top of a termite mound on the Eastern side of the pan and looks Westerly when viewing the pan.<br />

    When to view
    The camera is a day night pan tilt zoom camera with an 18x zoom with the capabilities of panning almost 360 degrees around the pan. The camera is fitted with infra red light for night time viewing. The Sabi Sands is very productive from a game viewing perspective throughout the year with a peak viewing over the winter months from May through to November. Nkoro Pan can be viewed on the Africam website on a 30s refresh rate or alternatively live real time streaming with audio on the Africam Wildlife Channel.

    Someone keeps playing with the camera too... The zoom and such... Not much activity... Other than really fast animals running around now and then.

    I get an error too! And I want to see it

    here's the error
    Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is on another computer, verify that you are connected to the network. If you typed a path, verify that it is correct. If the problem persists, the server might not be available.

    +1 I get the same thing as GlowThunder now. I was watching it earlier and it was fine. What gives? It was nice while it lasted.

    They must be having issues. There is a timer now... There wasn't earlier. I bet there's a problem with the streaming feed or something. Still not much going on... Still is dark...

    Someone is operating it... That's probably the problem though... It messes up... Something is wrong with the feed.
