I don't think some of you realize just how hard it is for Djuma to make it possible for us to see those two drives each day. It will also be some what difficult for Nkorho when they first start out until they can get the equipment working just right. These wonderful people from both game reserves take so much of their time everyday to try and show us places and animals most of us will never see in our lifetime. I don't always get in to Djuma everytime I try but I'm very thankful when I do. I appreciate everything that I see threw their eyes on the drive at Djuma. I live in North Carolina U.S.A and when I think of everything it takes just for us to be able to see the watering holes live at both sites and then the safari drives, I'm amazed at how far technology has come. So the next time you get mad or think of typing something bad about either site, maybe you should remember just what it takes for them to bring you all the wonderful things that you see each and everyday. All you have to do is turn your computer on and go to the site and they have to make everything else happen. Take all your energy into realizing how lucky we all are to get to see all the amazing wildlife that we get to view.

Yes, yes, yes...I am sure your geo-technological tirade will be properly enshrined in the annals of african wldlife viewing history....

Gimme a break....nobody is criticising the game reserves, their people or their efforts. That distinction has been made many times already. The crtiticisms are rightfully aimed at the telcom companies responsible for the transmission and delivery. I didn't just fall off a turnip wagon, here....and I know my way around the tech field...so don't lecture me about 'what it takes'. I already know....

I was one of the people running around here for days trying to help people get connected and stay connected...and explain what was going on since Telkom didn't feel it necessary to come clean on what was going on. I didn't see you doing that. Also didn't see you trying to console all the people locked out of the drives and left reading how excited the lucky few were to be seeing all these wonders. Many people don't have the computer resources to stay connected all day and insure a slot. Many don't have the time to sit and click for two hours to see what everyone is oooohing and aaaawing about.

Sorry to fly off the handle folks....but there's an old saying where I come from....'Don't pee down my back and tell me it's raining'

BTW...me and everyone at my forum has decided to stop watching the Djuma cam until a more fair and properly executed system is put in place. So there's a few more "slots" for everyone to fight over....

Rhinos at Nkorho but can't see them yet except for horn and baby whining.

Oh, yes, Yvette..we do realize and I'm of the older generation so "instant gratification" is not in my vocabulary. We're just hoping that AfriCam will have better providers or whatever it takes to make viewing for more, at one time...possible. My thoughts, too, Fabby and Ex. :D

Great vid, Aquila...How did I miss that?? Guess my screen was minimized a bit too much when I was answering email. :(

Hi Yvette :)
I think you'll find everyone be more than greatful for what all the people at Djuma are doing for us. We all know it's hard work for them and we don't have to pay a penny!
What we sometimes "complain" about, is that the provider they are on, only has 80 slots available for viewers! EIGHTY slots!! That's not much, worldwide... We feel for the people at Djuma because they are trying so hard and maybe don't even know that we're not getting a proper view. Or think of all our friends and families who would want to watch as well, but they can't, as there are only so few slots.

So, we're not mad with Djuma or Nkorho, they are both doing an amazing job, we're upset with their provider, Telkom :)

Here,here, Fabby!! Well said!! :D :D

Mr. Hippo is still around. Saw him a little while ago exiting the water.

Hello Yvette: I agree that it must take enormous amounts of energy and expertise to bring any of the cams to us :D Like you I don't always get on the drives or even the still cams but really really appreciate all the information and visuals they provide. I think with another mobile cam up and running, many more of us will be able to access this wonderful opportunity to experience things that, I personally will never see in "real". Love this experience and hope to experience more!!!! :D
