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

    just like you said Janet, I just watched a leopard, it was huge. It’s beautiful. Well thank you

  2. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 10:06 pm #

    the leopard and hippo did see each other, but neither seemed worried about the other…the leopard is actually napping here…doesn’t seem like a very safe place for a nap

  3. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 9:46 pm #

    Hippo is back drinking again…the leopard is back too, but off to the left of the water now

  4. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 9:37 pm #

    Oh no…now a lone zebra too…sheesh, why alone at night…can’t figure some of these animals out…well the ones that are “would be prey”…

  5. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 9:29 pm #

    the leopard is back tonight too…right on the far edge of the water hole

  6. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 8:58 pm #

    Tonight there are 2 Duiker at the water hole…very wary

  7. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 11:34 am #

    A lone zebra just came for a drink…the cape buffalo are still here too.

  8. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 10:50 am #

    Antelope just left the water hole and now the cape buffalo have arrived here to drink

  9. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 12:59 am #

    I can hear hyenas calling…not too far away

  10. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 12:40 am #

    Just learned something new…their name “Duiker” comes from the dutch word “diver”, because they dive into the bushes when startled…must be how this one has managed to survive alone at night for this long.

  11. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 12:34 am #

    I just saw this little antelope close up at the water’s edge…and it is the Duiker…

  12. Janet Patton Browning September 5, 2016 at 12:33 am #

    The little antelope is at the water again…it is smart…very wary…probably how it survives alone like this at night.

  13. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:45 pm #

    If it is, it is a smaller antelope species in Africa.

  14. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:44 pm #

    I can’t for sure identify it, but it looks like a Duiker?

  15. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:43 pm #

    The deer was edging towards the water hole for a drink, but something scared it…I cannot believe this is the same deer from a couple of night ago, but it could be…if so, it is either the smartest animal in Africa or the fastest, to have escaped becoming one of the big cats midnight snack

  16. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:35 pm #

    Oh wow, another lone deer here…I can’t figure why a deer would be alone here…safety in numbers…

  17. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:21 pm #

    I hear a hippo fussing, not sure if it is just fussing or the lions are after it

  18. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:19 pm #

    At night, you can always spot the big and little dipper in the sky…I love seeing that too…so clear at night.

  19. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:17 pm #

    Elephants at Pete’s Pond right now…

  20. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:12 pm #

    You can hear the lions roaring…wonder what’s up? No activity at any of the other cams yet tonight

  21. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:09 pm #

    Not long enough, he just left…love watching them

  22. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:07 pm #

    11:06 their time, he came to the water hole…he is drinking now, but he needs to eat bad…skinny guy!!

  23. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:06 pm #

    Ahh, the source of the sound…a big lion is at the water hole!! This is the first time I have seen him close up…so beautiful!!

  24. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 11:00 pm #

    I hear the lions here again calling…

  25. Janet Patton Browning September 4, 2016 at 10:49 pm #

    Yeah, Djuma is back up on my puter now…love this place…so many beautiful animals to see…

  26. Edward Wilson September 4, 2016 at 5:00 am #

    Hippo in the water hole tonight 9//16

  27. Janet Patton Browning September 3, 2016 at 12:18 pm #

    I’m no pro at identifying some of these and they are usually mixed herds…makes things harder for me to tell what is what

  28. Janet Patton Browning September 3, 2016 at 12:16 pm #

    impalas may actually be springbok…

  29. Janet Patton Browning September 3, 2016 at 12:15 pm #

    There are antelope with the impalas too, not sure, but I think a couple are kudos?

  30. Janet Patton Browning September 3, 2016 at 12:08 pm #

    A few Cape buffalo are lazing by the river and some in the river cooling off…3 impalas are heading for the water hole now too.

  31. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 10:27 pm #

    ‘well, what a time for the cam to go on the fritz here…lol At least, if they spied the deer, it won’t suffer…lions always kill their prey before they eat it…thank goodness…that is all but the cape buffalo; they are always a problem for the lions to kill before they start eating.

  32. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 10:13 pm #

    It’s 3 adult females and some cubs here drinking

  33. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 10:10 pm #

    Oh no…trouble for the deer just arrived…the pride of lions just came out of the wooded area towards the water now…

  34. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 10:08 pm #

    Such a beautiful leopard…he was just laying by the water, after he drank…but, now he is sitting up and looking around…maybe for the deer…the leopard just left…can’t see where the deer is…but, it has just been roaming around here for the last couple of hours now…I hear a lion calling now too.

  35. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 10:02 pm #

    Uhoh…and the leopard just spotted the lone deer…I can’t believe the leopard hasn’t chased it yet…I think it may have been waiting for it to get closer…either way, I don’t think this will end well for the deer.

  36. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 9:56 pm #

    There is a leopard at the water drinking now…first one I have seen on any of the African cams here…wow, beautiful!! Unfortunately, there is also a lone antelope or deer here too…I don’t think it will make it till morning…it’s a doe and it’s alone…

  37. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 6:57 pm #

    Who would be shooting a gun out here?

  38. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 6:32 pm #

    The hippo is back and he really expends a lot of energy just to get enough to drink…I had no idea that hippos drank water this way…he just takes a big gulp and swallows what he can, while a lot of it squirts out the sides of his mouth…

  39. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 6:04 pm #

    One of the adults in this herd is collared

  40. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 6:04 pm #

    Another heard of elephants are at the water hole now

  41. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 5:30 pm #

    Thank goodness most of the pride is leaving…elephant won’t be on their menu tonight…I am so glad they aren’t going to bother one another

  42. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 5:28 pm #

    Oh no…the lions are all laying just beyond the water hole…the adult elephants are probably OK, but I worry about the young elephants here…

  43. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 5:27 pm #

    A good size herd of elephants, babies in tow, are at the water hole now…the lions left a few minutes ago.

  44. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 5:24 pm #

    4 adult females, the male is waiting in the background and 8 or 9 cubs of various ages…so cool

  45. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 5:23 pm #

    They have their cubs with them too…so cute.

  46. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 5:22 pm #

    OMG…a whole lion pride is at the water hole right now…so cool!!!

  47. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 1:53 pm #

    The hippo is still in the middle soaking, cape buffalo are watching the elephants playing in the water…they are taking their trunks and slinging water all over the place…too funny!!

  48. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 1:50 pm #

    Elephants are at the water hole now…having a good ole time and drinking some too.

  49. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 1:42 pm #

    Hippo is back soaking in the water this morning

  50. Janet Patton Browning September 2, 2016 at 9:04 am #
