What’s going on here?

WildEarth is happy to return to Tau Game Lodge in the Madikwe Nature Reserve in South Africa. Tau was one of the web’s original waterhole cameras more than a decade ago.

Times have changed and long gone are the days of 30 second refresh still cams; Tau now sports a modern video streaming cam, controlled by remote zoomies to bring you the best possible view of the waterhole in front of the lodge 24/7. With it’s night capabilities, creatures can be seen and followed 24/7.

The waterhole

The waterhole in front of the main lodge is very active throughout the day. There is abundant wildlife; herds of elephant regularly come for a drink or a bath, lion are regularly seen and a variety of other animals species including giraffe, zebra, kudu, warthog come and visit here.

And for those times no mammals are around the many bird species will keep you entertained. The area around the lodge boasts over 200 species!

Our zoomies are experts in finding all creatures, great and small.
