Africam

I found a really cool website I want to share. It was listed in July 2007 Parents magazine. The website has a set of web cams. One is streaming video of a watering hole. Others are live web cams that are updated every few minutes. The live feed, streaming video also includes sound.

www.africam.com

There is a 6 hour time difference. When it is 12:00AM here, it is 6:00AM there and the sun is just coming up around that time. The magazine said that this is a watering hole frequently visited by elephants.

Indeed, in the time since I first discovered this website, I have seen elephants, giraffes, zebra, wart hogs, various deer and antelopes, and lots of birds. There is apparently an off-site location where the camera can be controlled because the camera will follow the movements of the animals throughout the day.

It is definitely worth your time to visit this site. Your kids will enjoy watching the animals play in the water and chase each other.
