Wow that was sure a wild party, I loved every minute of those african dancers. I even got to see a little leg shake from Marc when the camera quickly moved to the right and back. It was so quick, I think I was the only one to see. He was so cute, wish I could of seen all our drivers and camera people dancing more. Maybe next year we could entice them to get out on the floor a little more. WE, I love you and so glad I found this site. Thankyou, everyone!
a short note as to what you are about to read from my AfriArchives:
The fantastic beginnings..of this 'joining', between Djuma and WildEarth..had it's start a long time ago in 1998 with Graham Wallington's original idea and dream of webcams at SA waterholes and dams. This article appeared in the monthly Djuma newsletter, "Drum Beat"..in March, 1999 and was written by Jurie Moolman, owner of… Continue
Well everyone, I am so sorry I have not been active on this site much but I have been busy with college. All of you might know, I have worked with elephants in California before I moved to Massachusetts. And recently I have missed the ellies I worked with, Shaunzi and Kara, so much. I was looking at some photos I took of them and found one of Shaunzi taking a dust bath. I had to make a water-color sketch of her. I hope you guys enjoy my…

This morning Karula was sighted!
Word spread and vehicles containing excited humans converged on her.
Many people in chat expressed concern that she was being upset. The thought crossed my mind too but looking at her behaviour she appeared relaxed and quite natural.
Kaiser explained that only 3 vehicles at a time could follow the leopard. Well done managers of the reserve! A rule that is sensible and sensitive to the animal's wellbeing.
The animals in the reserve are… Continue
Today I had a good Eagle Day. I first saw ma or pa Eagle make a lot of noise about something. Of course my imagination decides it is hungry or angry because it wants to eat or it wants to stretch or fly away. Then to my surprise the eagle gets up and their are 2 eggs, not one like I saw before, as well as an eaglet. Now where is the food I wonder where is the other eagle. It seems to me the baby is hungry, but I read that the little chicks do not need food for a few days,… Continue

Lions are being grossly exploited in South Africa, for Canned Hunting, and believe it or not yes Exotic Meat sales. The objective of this group is to fight for the rights of the lion population.

Lions raised with the intention of keeping them totally wild, not being imprinted on by humans. …. Even then there are many complications due to the complex structure of the lion territory and… Continue
Fantastic!! Just like with the Djuma Game Drives, the feed from all the Hancock Wildlife Foundation EagleCams is now being archived and we are able to code seekpoints. Woo Hoo!!! This will also be a very valuable tool for the researchers.
