African Watering Hole

 

One of the most interesting items I’ve found as I’ve researched the African savanna is this webcam of an African watering hole.  Although the Live Cam is dark during my daytime, there are highlights that can be viewed at any time.  It’s fascinating!  I find myself checking it out almost every day.  There’s just something about observing animals in the wild that beats a zoo any day!  The only down side is that the highlights are a continuous loop and once you’ve seen them all (and it only takes minutes) you’ve seen them all!  Still, I can’t get enough of the elephant maneuvering it’s baby around the water hole!

Those of you who live closer to Africa may do better with the Live Cam than I do!  It appears that you can snap pictures from the cameras as well.  How cool is that!  And there are LOTS of cameras to choose from in addition to this one.  Explore what they’ve got!  It’s worth the time.

You can find the original site here.    It’s provided by Explore.org.  Hope you and your kiddos will enjoy it as much as I do!
