Spend some time with us, watching as African wildlife come to drink and graze from the waterholes, river webcams, or as we call them, the hide- and deckcams. 

ol Donyo Lodge Hidecam

Enjoy the waterhole view from our Great Plains Live Kenya Waterhole Webcam (Hidecam) at ol Donyo Lodge under the shadow of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro. ol Donyo Lodge is a Great Plains Conservation Réserve-Collection safari camp and a proud Relais & Châteaux member. Keep an eye out for fringe-eared oryx, giraffe, the resident warthog, stealthy cats that visit at night, and, if you are lucky, some of Africa’s largest tusked elephants. ol Donyo Lodge is situated in the Chyulu Hills of southern Kenya.

Tembo Plains Deckcam

Enjoy the live African wildlife webcam views across the floodplains in front of Tembo Plains and along Zimbabwe’s Zambezi River’s edge. At times one can also marvel at magnificent electric storms that flash over the horizon as you gaze into Zambia across the river. The islands are often filled with herds of elephants and hippos as they feast on the grasses and reeds. Birdlife is prolific and constant. Hippo and baboon regularly take centre stage late evening and early morning.

The Webcam has been placed strategically off the deck at Tembo Plains Camp, a Great Plains Conservation Réserve-Collection safari camp and proud Relais & Châteaux member. Tembo Plains Camp and the Zanji Suite at Tembo Plains are in the expansive private Sapi Private Reserve situated on the eastern boundary of the Mana Pools of northern Zimbabwe.

Considering how remote our African safari camps truly are, there may be times when the feed could be a little glitchy, temperamental, buffering or simply temporarily offline. It’s actually quite amazing how we can bring these streaming, high-definition African wildlife sightings direct to you. Rest assured that our fantastic team of techies and webcam geniuses behind the scenes are hard at work flicking switches, rebooting routers, and biting anxiously on their pens because they love the views just as much as you and want to see the live feed pronto too. The gremlin you see should automatically be resolved shortly if you do experience any hiccups. Our webcam footage at ol Donyo Lodge and Tembo Plains is in partnership with Africam.
