Between 1998-2002, the dream of Africam became a rapidly growing reality, achieving many substantial successes along the way. However, the fallout from the 9/11 incident put a stranglehold on investments and the further advancement of Africam,resulting in a stagnant state for quite a while. While 3,400 members were registered, only a tenth were regular users.
A new stage of development began to take place in May, 2006, and with it came the first viewing of the live stream in September of the same year. This progress began TO READ MORE OF THIS ARTICLE CLICK HERE
Africam for Bushbabies
I hope you tried posting in the "New To Boma" thread to introduce yourself and start to get a feel for the forum.
As I said at the end of the last installment, this issue will get you started posting in the daily threads. The difference here is that you won't be a newbie because it is going to be a whole new forum created for the daily chats. Everyone will be a newbie!
Starting very soon, the Campfire and the Watering Hole will be combined into The Boma. This is a great opportunity to jump right in and get to know the regulars from both forums all in the same location.
You will find The Boma HERE in the General Chit Chat Forum.

Elephant Plains Written by Gerda
In May 2008, I travelled to South Africa together with Katja.
After spending 2 weeks in Kruger National Park we ended our holiday at Elephant Plains.
We stayed at the lodge for 2 days and had a wonderful time.
Elephant Plains Lodge is located on the banks of the Manyeleti river and has a spectacular view over the surrounding plains.
Our room at EP did not have a number but it was named "Leopard". The room was absolutely beautiful, and like the name says it had leopard pictures on all the walls and leopard tracks in the floor, a sitting area, inside/outside shower, ensuite bathroom and a private decked area looking over the dry Manyeleti riverbed and "our" familiar EP waterhole. (insert pictures EP leopard room and EP leopard room 2)
It was great to finally see the waterhole "for real". A day at Elephant plains starts around 5.30 am, that's the TO READ MORE OF THIS ARTICLE CLICK HERE
Greetings To All of Africam! Written by Amy
My name in the land of cam watching is Camfan1, and although I am fairly new to this sight, just six months now, I feel like I have found a new home.
I live in the bright sunny state of Florida, in the USA, which puts me about 7 hours behind South Africa’s time. I do get to see the afternoon in Africa, but most of my cam watching is spent viewing at night, when a wonderful and mysterious atmosphere takes over the waterholes. It has fast become my favorite time to watch, wait and listen for the sounds and occasional sights of that remarkable land.
While prowling around in the Africam site, reading and learning, and reading some more, I found a little section for blogging…one of my very favorite things to do. While I am currently employed in a public school system, I have always TO READ MORE THIS ARTICLE CLICK HERE
