    So this a 24/7 webcam of a watering hole in Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve in South Africa.

    It's night time now, but it's cool to watch sometimes. Yesterday there were wildebeests and zebras and little birdies that squawked.

    So yeah. CLICK ME

    This is very, very cool. Thank you for posting this Yared you are a champion!

    It is night time as I am looking at this.... I have the volume up and you can hear the crickets or whatever so loud.

    I am ging to leave that sound on as I fall asleep tonight.

    It is kind of like falling asleep in the bush while on a hunting/fishing trip.

    they moved away from the water to a patch of land, where there was nothing really, an occasional monkey, and you heard this ROARING, and something was CRYING\SCREAMING, and more ROARING. It was messed up.

    Oh my GOD how could I MISS THAT?!

    I've been watching this thing like nonstop for the past 2 days. Whenever I'm on the computer anyways.

    All I wanted to see was a lion eating a zebra. Is that too much to ask?

    Or maybe even a family of monkeys being devoured by rabid hyenas.

    the cam is set up at Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve.

    With no restricting fences between Sabi Sand Private Reserve and the renowned Kruger National Park, you will experience incredible wildlife encounters. Add the romantic ambience of superb safari lodges and you will be part of a timelessness that will stay with you forever.

    Luxury and comfort in the bush is ultimately the best escape from the stresses of the world. After a thrilling evening game drive, dine on traditional cuisine around a roaring boma fire under the stars of the African sky.

    Grouse Mountain is nestled up to the City of Vancouver, B.C. It has being raining non stop in Vancouver, which means Grouse Mountain is getting snow and lot's of it.

    Now... at this time Grizzlies are goring to what?

    Yep.... The answer is Hibernate. My guess is that they set up a camera in a den, outside a den, or in a man made den and we are all going to watch them sleep through the winter.

    Watching Bears Hibernate will still be intersting. But not as intersting as seeing a pride of Lions take down a Zebra at the watering hole. Heck let me see them at least chase a monkey is all I ask.
