Djuma, situated in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin (South Africa), is WildEarth’s most famous waterhole and perhaps a local favorite for LIVE wildlife action!

Did you know…?

The Djuma webcam overlooks the Gowrie Dam, and is actually the oldest waterhole cam in Africa and the world. It has been broadcasting LIVE from the area since 1998.

Open your eyes for…

Big cats, elephants, hippos, and many other types of mammals, birds and reptiles.

What did you spot today?

    It’s not leopard it’s some cat. What cat is it?

    • Michael Theys March 6, 2017 at 10:58 am #

      How big was it? Did it have spots? Any smaller-sized cat could be wild cat, serval or caracal.

      • r3fon March 7, 2017 at 12:07 am #

        Maybe It was serval. The cat was with strips.

        • Michael Theys March 9, 2017 at 1:13 pm #

          Stripes, you mean? Hmmm, strange…

          • r3fon March 10, 2017 at 9:49 am #

            I checked cats which you supposed and I think It was serval but in a dark spots look like strips. Can I see lion or leopard on a camera? If yes, which time they prefer to coming?

    • Brian MacNeil April 18, 2017 at 5:01 pm #

      There was a cheetah (I think) around for a couple of days earlier this week _ may have been the same visitor.

      • r3fon April 20, 2017 at 8:11 am #

        Last night i saw a leopard.

        • Michael Theys April 21, 2017 at 6:25 pm #

          WOW, you’re SO LUCKY! ­čÖé

          • r3fon April 22, 2017 at 11:36 am #

            Yes, I also think that, I am so lucky. I saved this moment with “Print Screen”. In a future, I think, that must to be more confidential, it’s will be more security for animals!

  3. r3fon March 2, 2017 at 11:36 pm #

    I see something for several seconds, i thing it was leopard.

    Camera still down

  5. Miss C B Price December 10, 2016 at 6:53 pm #

    Cam down

  6. Miss C B Price December 9, 2016 at 6:00 pm #

    Lighting so spectacular

  7. Miss C B Price December 7, 2016 at 2:56 pm #

    Still no sound

    • Michael Theys December 8, 2016 at 4:00 pm #

      Sound is working fine on my end… Make sure the embedded player is unmuted.

      • Miss C B Price December 9, 2016 at 3:34 pm #

        The sound on the other cams are ok and checked my end and all seems ok

  8. Hannah Mabey November 8, 2016 at 9:54 pm #

    Why do you not show the rhinos? ­čÖü

    • Michael Theys November 9, 2016 at 3:43 pm #

      Because if we can see them, poachers can potentially know where they are too! ­čśë

    • Jana Grzn├írov├í November 17, 2016 at 11:45 am #

      Hannah Mabey, Think a little, I was also the beginning of pausing the team, but as You and me watching the cameras as well as cameras follow poachers. And since those are completely different’m interested in animals, so it is better if they to not Africa Freak opportunity to find easily these beautiful animals that they can kill. That `s my opinion.

  9. Miss C B Price November 1, 2016 at 9:19 pm #

    Camera down again

  10. Miss C B Price October 31, 2016 at 11:35 pm #

    Camera finally working. GREAT so why are we looking at tire tracks and a foot print while hearing lions extreamly close by ?

  11. Jana Grznárová October 26, 2016 at 11:19 pm #

    Still camera not working?

    • Michael Theys October 31, 2016 at 11:29 am #

      The issue should be resolved soon (see response to Don Baxley). Thank you for your patience.

      • Jana Grzn├írov├í November 3, 2016 at 8:02 pm #

        Well thank you.

      “Waterhole cam update: As previously shared, the breaker at the Vuyatela
      mast needed to be replaced to resolve the problem we are having with
      power to the Djuma cam. The electrician is supposed to come today (Monday Oct. 31st) to replace the breaker. Providing that all
      goes well as planned, the cam should be back online within the next
      couple of days. ~ Karen” Thank you for your patience!

  13. Don Baxley October 17, 2016 at 7:08 am #

    It off the air now for some reason. Can’t find it anywhere? This is the second time this has happened.

  14. Janet Patton Browning September 17, 2016 at 5:01 am #

    So glad you are seeing them too, Jana…there is a lion and a lioness and a couple of cubs here again tonight. Now there are move than the one lioness…it’s part of the pride I’m seeing here now.

  15. Jana Grznárová September 16, 2016 at 11:19 pm #

    Today again a fantastic experience, I even dreamed that I see this, large lion pride. Lion, lioness 4 and about 7 or 8 cubs. I am incredibly happy that I managed to see this. The lion is probably tired of so many offspring, so sleeping and resting lioness and cubs are playing.

  16. Janet Patton Browning September 12, 2016 at 1:19 am #

    A Duiker is at the waterhole drinking now…not sure if that is what the kill was earlier or not…but, this one is here now…better watch out, with the lions active here at night now.

    • Michael Theys September 13, 2016 at 10:03 am #

      Hey Janet, hope you’re doing well… ­čÖé

      Just started to curate some of Africa’s best wildlife videos. You can find them here, and I will be adding some more very soon.

      Take care,


  17. Janet Patton Browning September 12, 2016 at 1:09 am #

    She had been in the dark area behind the waterhole so I couldn’t for sure see what she was doing, eating or drinking, but there is no water there, I can see now where she was and it had to be a kill she was at.

  18. Janet Patton Browning September 12, 2016 at 1:06 am #

    Yes, she was eating something earlier, I can see blood on her face.

  19. Janet Patton Browning September 12, 2016 at 1:05 am #

    Well, she is drinking here now, but I think they must have made a kill here sometime today or tonight, because she wasn’t at the waterhole earlier, she was behind it…so not sure what she was doing, unless she was at the kill.

  20. Janet Patton Browning September 12, 2016 at 1:00 am #

    I have yet to see them at Tau…I gotta watch there again…there is a lioness here tonight, drinking from the waterhole. So glad, Jana, that you are getting to see them.

  21. Jana Grznárová September 11, 2016 at 10:09 pm #

    So today I was lucky again, she returned lioness drinking water and when she went away, then came another lioness

  22. Jana Grznárová September 11, 2016 at 8:54 pm #

    Hello Janet, I finally saw a lion. She was very thirsty, drink the water long.

  23. Jana Grznárová September 10, 2016 at 9:25 pm #

    Hello Janet, lions I saw only one night at Tau, here I have not seen the lions

  24. Janet Patton Browning September 9, 2016 at 7:24 pm #

    One more thing, Jana…when I do see the lions here, it has been in the daytime…not sure where they go at night.

  25. Janet Patton Browning September 9, 2016 at 7:22 pm #

    For some reason too, Jana…I don’t see too much action at Tau…I have seen rinos there and at one other place…I think Kwa.

  26. Janet Patton Browning September 9, 2016 at 3:40 pm #

    3 younger and 1 older warthog at the water hole

  27. Janet Patton Browning September 9, 2016 at 8:44 am #

    Impala at the water hole…a small herd of them

  28. Janet Patton Browning September 7, 2016 at 7:19 pm #

  29. Janet Patton Browning September 7, 2016 at 7:14 pm #

    3 Duiker tonight…this is getting to be a small herd…lol

  30. Janet Patton Browning September 7, 2016 at 7:08 pm #

    A leopard is on Kwa right now…

  31. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 11:51 pm #

    You are very welcome, Jana…he has been coming here every night and a little while ago, I saw my first two leopards…I think it was a mom and her almost grown cub at Kwa…I am so amazed to see them…they are by far my favorite of the big cats…although I love them all. Happy watching
