Drives that break ... and WOW!


WE have had a series of technical difficulties over the weekend with our game drive vehicle. Problems with the fuel line and bad power connections on the encoder, but all is well now.
This morning, and last night, WE had great drives. With a beautiful pride of lions including 4 cubs, Karula with her cub on an impala kill and three rhino ... as well as elephant, Nick then went on a mission to find buffalo so that he got all the Big 5 on one drive. He did it! So WE officially had our first Big 5 drive. Well done Nick!!

Everyday when I come to watch the game drive you witch the cam off making it impossible for me to get it back up again. Is there only a selective few who are allowed to get connected. Why can't we get to watch this from the UK?

GOOD WORK NICK & HELEN ON A GREAT DRIVE " THE BIG 5" AND I THINK THAT NICK AND HELEN SHOULD NAME THE BABY LEOPARD CUBS. THEY ARE THE BEST. AND A HIGH 5 TO THEM. FROM THE STATES(PITTSBURGH PA.)

Anonymous,I live in the UK and i am able to connect to this cam,you have to be clicking at the right time to get on the drive. There is no select few there are only 80 viewing slots, even the people who watch the cam regulary sometimes can't connect cause all the spaces have been taken up.If you read the boards you will see.

Regards
