Tembe Elephant Cam           Tembe Elephant Park

Africam has partnered with Tembe Elephant Park to bring you the Tembe Elephants live! They are reportedly the biggest elephants in the world.  The camera is situated in northern KwaZulu Natal on the South African/Mozambique border.

The cam is still being tested and we are running it in "bare bones" mode which means reduced resolution, no sound and no IR lights for nighttime viewing.  However, as we wind this cam up we will be addressing all those issues and more once we have the telecommunications and power issues stabalized.  For a quick peak head to AFRICAM and you can access the cam via the left side navigation menu under  "Tembe (test)"

This is a circular wood/reed enclosure where you dine under the stars around a campfire.

When we first started visiting NK as a lodge in 2003,  there were six chalets (five in a row with No. 6 being set behind the other rooms).  Now these...  TO READ MORE OF THIS ARTICLE CLICK HERE

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 Smiling

My favorite animal is ....
