Why is the Watering Hole Cam down so much?

The cam was down for two full days this past weekend. Now every day it goes down for minutes and sometimes hours. What is going on? Anybody know?

It is even down on the WaveLit site.

Is this related to the two new cams being installed soon?

Thanks.

I'm sure because of some technical issue. I'm not sure exactly which techinical issue: electrical outage out in the bush, or, power supply problems all over South Africa due to the demands winter puts on the supply, or, camera issues like an elephant pulling up the connection or heaven forbid knocking down the cam tree, but, you can be sure when the cam is down it is something beyond the administrations control, not something they're doing to us intentionally (because when they have to take the camera off line they tell us).

Given the location and the problems the remoteness poses in terms of consistant electrical supplies, let alone wireless and cable internet connections, I would be more inclined to ask "why is the camera working so often and as reliably as it does?" :) LOL
