Hello everyone, okay, so I have noticed that during the day there is in general less animal activity. And that possibly I can view more of the nocturnal animals during the night time hours.
When to view africa at night in different time zones..?
Thanx everyone for the help *winks*
I'll try to get on here tomorrow morning at like 9 if Im awake or stay up untill 3 when the sun will be going down there, anyways Im off to do some Africamming!
Hi Haydos....I'm a fellow Aussie, from Qld. Those times are about right seeing as you are an hour ahead of us with daylight saving (we don't have it here in Qld).
Also, at this time of year when they get their rains over there, the viewing seems to drop off as animals have more places to drink. Our winter time here is the dry season at the waterholes and you see more sightings.
The other thing I must mention about having the cams running all the time in Aus, watch your download limits on your internet package! Our American friends (and probably others) are blessed to have internet packages that don't have any limits so they can have their cams running 24/7 without any changes to their service or extra cost. You will need a LOT of gig download allowance to have the cams running all the time as it really chews up the bandwidth.
Unless of course, you are with someone who doesn't limit your viewing without it costing you more or reducing your speed to dialup... and if you do, let me know...I might want to change to them too...lol
Anyway, enjoy the viewing and do come and join us the waterhole chat, or campfire chat
Hi Haydos and welcome to Africam. The site is great and so are the people, you will really enjoy it.
Donna did all the work for you regarding the time zone figuring but just in case you want to look here is a neat map of the world and all the time zones:
Hope to see you at the wateringhole sometime.
Thanks heaps, so I'm in the Melbourne region which is still the same time...it's 12:06 here, so that means I'll want to be viewing night time in africa at about 4:00 AM and 12:00 here...right?
Hi Haydn! Welcome to Africam.
The time difference depends on your time zone in Australia. If you are in the Sydney time zone it is about 11:55 PM for you now. It is 2:55 PM in South Africa. That means you are always 9 hours ahead of the cams. This time of year the sun sets in South Africa around 3:30 AM YOUR time and rises around 1:00 PM YOUR time. I hope I haven't confused you more. LOL! You can keep the cams up as long as you want. They depend on ad and donation income to keep the cams running.
