Pete’s Pond – LIVE African savannah

National Geographic have set up a 24-hour live Internet video feed from Pete’s Pond in deepest southern Africa. A high-resolution camera captures any movement it sees and records 20 to 25 images every second. The images are bounced off a satellite 22,500 miles above the equator. This signal is then picked up somewhere else, where it is streamed on to the Internet. The images are not brilliant but frame rate is just sufficient to make the animals visible. I’ve seen elephants, ostriches, antelope and wild pigs. I also think that I’ve heard a lion. The best time to tune in is in the morning, UK time. You can take a walk on the wild side at:
cheers dad!
