    1. Hi Elsabe,

      The cam is down for now, here’s the latest news:

      “UPDATE – 20 February: Unfortunately, the new power supply did not arrive in Hoedspruit in time for Alex to take back to Djuma with him on Friday. This means that should it arrive by Monday, Alex can collect it on Tuesday only.”

      Thanks for your patience.

  1. Latest Djuma Cam update (18 February 2021):

    “After installing a replacement part to restore audio back on the cam, the power supply then broke on Sunday. We’ve ordered a new one and are hopeful that it arrives on-site on Friday and then can be installed during the weekend. As always, we thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support.”

  2. Beautiful view of a leopard a couple of days ago. Thank you for focusing on that and following the view so all could see. Made me feel like I was really in Africa!! Thanks! 🙂

  3. I appreciate these live cams so much. There were incredible Djuma cam views of the Nkuhuma lion pride early after the cam went to IR today. One injured lioness was lagging behind the pride and I hope her injured leg heals fast, so she can go back to being a champion huntress. That Djuma cam is quite sensitive. I could hear a hyena calling in the distance. But the magical experience was disturbed by a vehicle with non-stop chattering visitors and spotlights on the lions who were probably off to hunt. How can the wildlife not be impacted by all that noise and spotlights from humans? I hope the guides regularly encourage the visitors to stop talking and they shut off the engines so all can listen to the amazing night sounds.

  4. The leopard that was captured tonight on the webcam was stunning! I cannot describe how amazing it is to see such a magnificent animal in nature. Free to live and totally unaware that we are observing every moment. Thank you for making this possible.

      1. So pleased to have found this site. Seeing the lion pride earlier was awesome. Didn’t realise how close the rangers’ vehicles got to them, thank you!

  5. Wow, that’s great. Now I feel like I was in Africa and that’s exactly how we watched this beautiful animal.

  6. Hi, it’s 10am Friday 13 April 2018. I can hear all sorts of grunting near the camera but can’t see what it is. It would be good if the camera was panning and might get to see – maybe wild pigs or warthogs?

          1. 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?

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

          1. 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!

    1. 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.

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