Meet The Mod Squad - Gerda
My name is GERDA. I discovered Africam in 1999 & since then, there isn't a day that goes by without me visiting the waterholes and enjoying the sights and sounds on the cams.
I live in Belgium and work in a hotel as a receptionist.
My interests are wildlife, birds, travelling, photography and sports.
I travelled a few times to Africa and fell in love with its wildlife. I find it fascinating to watch all the different animals roam, and interact with each other. Nature is the greatest teacher that exists
My favorite animal is the spotted hyaena and I will never forget the moment when I heard my first hyaena whooohoooping live at NK streaming cam.
My cat, Zulu, was sleeping on my desk, when suddenly this hyaena started calling very loudly. Zulu got such a fright, he jumped up and ran off with his tail and hairs all raised. Now after a few years, he got used to the weird sounds coming out of my pc and doesn't even lift his eyes anymore when suddenly a hyaena, baboon or a loud francolin starts calling on the cams while he is sleeping on my desk.
Talking about sounds... I absolutely love the sounds from the cams.
I started recording the sounds I heard and tried to ID them and started a sound database with mammal and bird sounds. I'm always very excited when I have a new sound to add to the database HERE
I love to meet people who share the same interest for wildlife and nature and through Africam I have made some good friends over the years.
I can truly say that Africam has changed my life.
