|Black Eagle Camera Launch |
Africam, in partnership with the Black Eagle Project Roodekrans, are proud to announce the launch of the new Black Eagle live streaming webcam. The brainchild of Libby Woodcock and her team at Black Eagle project, they are dedicated to the conservation of these endangered raptors and will use the live streaming webcam to monitor and obtain vital information on their breeding cycle. This information will be used to help conserve the Eagles and their habitat as well as educate viewers worldwide. For more information on the Black Eagle project Roodekrans go to BLACK EAGLE WEBSITE

Africam's Resident Water Monitor
One of the most fascinating creatures we find around the water hole at Elephant Plains is the water monitor lizard. His movements, his markings, his claws...almost all of him reminds us of prehistoric times. Like other reptiles, he must sun himself for warmth before he can start his day. He is the only lizard that has the tongue of a snake! Take a look at the water monitor facts and video by clicking here...

You can read more about this slithering sighting in this Africam blog post from "The Ranger Tales".
