    24 Hour African Waterhole Webcam

    Pretty cool site.
    You can see all kinds of wild animals journey in for a drink of H2O.
    The camera is on 24hrs a day and even has night vision for when it is dark over there which there is a 7hrs difference so night will come in about another 1 1/2 hrs there and the sun rises between 9:30pm- 10:00pm EST. The camera is monitored so at times the camera will move off the waterhole and scan the area surrounding and they will also zoom in for a closer look.

    They say you see a lot of action when the sun is starting to come up.
    It is also equipped with night vision...
    I have seen some lions and monkeys from time to time.
    It is a remote camera on the back of a lodge.
    Either someone is operating it, or it has some sort of sensor on it that allows it to zoom and move whenever there is action near the watering hole.
    A little while ago it was zooming in on a large bird.

    Well, I think I might be hooked. This is probably my favorite watering hole in all of Africa now.

    Nkorho Pan is a natural water hole in the prestigious Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, in South Africa. Nkorho pan is named after Nkorho bush Lodge.

    Sabi Sands is a collection of private game reserves that share unfenced borders with each other and with the Kruger National Park. This allows the free movement of wildlife over more than 2 million hectares of pristine bush, and the entire conservation area is known as the greater Kruger National Park.

    I watched it for a few minutes until a Hotjobs pop up blocked it and refused to go away.
