Call of the Wild

Ever wanted to go on safari or wished you could visit Africa?

If your life currently does not allow you to indulge in such dreams, try this as a substitute.

National Geographic has a webcam at Pete’s Pond in the Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana. The camera is focused on a pond that animals come to drink at. Makes for compelling viewing; reminds me of those old stories of hunters that sat in their machans and watched and waited for hours, sometimes days, with utter patience…

These days, our machans are on the other side of the planet and we are too far away to do any permanent damage. Maybe technology does have its good side after all…

Take a virtual safari trip at Pete’s Pond and then take a look at some other webcams :

Bon Voyage!
