Each of our cams have a unique history and infrastructure to support it. This requires the commitment of many people and organisations that include the nature reserves, conservation bodies, game parks and dedicated people whose passion it is to share their love of wildlife.
Here are some of our more important camera locations (click on orange markers)
Below, you will find specific information about each camera: location, content, type of cam, the best time to view and images taken from each camera.
Each camera is customized to its particular location. Often, as is the case with most wildlife cams, the cams are remote far from mains electricity, telecommunications infrastructure and other resources. As a result, alternative power sources are deployed such as windmills and solar panels. Leading edge telecommunications are utilised and include satellite, fibre optic and innovative wireless technology.
This often results in some operational and technical challenges in setting up and maintaining the camera infrastructure. It is not unusual to have interference with cams, from humans, weather, terrain and animals alike - not to mention some vigorous Africam storms !
