For Animal Lovers

This is one of the coolest sites I have seen in a long time. It is a webcam that is set up by a watering hole in Africa. the camera zooms and pans to catch the action. If you catch it at the right time you can see some amazing things (look to the let for optimum viewing times). We have seen tons of elephants (even baby elephants), baboons, zebras, and all sorts of other great animals. There is audio as well. Don't be discouraged if you check and don't see anything. Just check back another time. You will see something eventually.

I will check it out after 10 pm as often as I can (that's 7am Bottswana time). The sound alone is so relaxing!!!
I saw 2 animals, similar to deer. This is awesome! Thanks so much, GB!

Oh wow that one is cool too Mish.

the really neat thing about the one I posted is that it is in the wild. It is the first and only time this has been done. You get to actually see the animals in their natural habitat doing what they do.

GB - WOW - there's some animal making some kind of noise right now - you can hear the water ripple and the wind - I can't wait for daylight!!!!

Mish - I'm going to check yours out now too.

Had to come back and edit to say - it sounded like something tinkled!

Also - if it's all black wait a few minutes - the camera scans the area and you will eventually see the landscape.

Whoa, GB!! It is soooo lovely!! Right now a family of gazelles are having some drinks, at first there was only one, but one by one came a little one, daddy, and another... there are 4 of them right now!! With some bird chirping on the background!! This is awesome, like you said it is particularly special because it is being filmed in the nature... thanks again!!

I have not had the pleasure of seeing gazelles yet. I am so glad you got to see that!
