If anyone else is here...is your cam freezing?  I get 30 seconds at most, then I have to refresh.

I have a question about Pete's Pond.

There seems to be a hugely ecletic and varied assortment of wildlife that show up there. Cam picture is very clear. Yet, little is posted about the cam.

My question is, how "wild" IS Pete's Pond? Are the animals as free-roaming as those at Djuma and Nkorho? If so, AWESOME!

 Just checking, though Smiling

Thanks!

Petes pond is loacated north west of Nkohro and Djuma area, aproxamily 4 to 5 or maybe even 600 miles.  Its more in the desert area.   The animals are very much wild there.  They do not have to contend with landies chasing them around to view them.  They are a lot more skiddish than the ones we normally see.  Theres a very diverse selection of wildlife.  Lions are not as common place but one did walk through about 45 minutes ago.  Elands are an antelope we see there we do not see at djuma area.  Another is Kori bustards .. very large birds......The pond is quite large and is in the mashatu game reserve.  Its a man made pond.  It has fish in it and a very diverse bird and amphibian collection.  There is a lot of information about it on the forum at the national geographic site.  you might want to check it out. ... As for the cams.. I don't know what they use they have at least two maybe three.. the main cam is on the hide and in the air but it can move in a lot of directions.. there is also a new cam in the right upper corner of the pond.  That area is dry.. the pond has been dug out farther on that side also so its deeper than it was last year.  both cams give very clear pictures of the area.  There is an operator on duty from about 6 am to 10 pm give or take.
