Web Cam


The unique Tembe web-cam is a LIVE video stream with full color and sound. What you see on the screen is what is happening live at the water hole.

The web cam runs 24 hours a day, turn up your speaker volume to hear the sounds of the birds and wildlife.

A commentary on what is happening at the water hole can be found on the Facebook page here .

The date and time in South Africa is GMT +2. (USA 6 hours behind us, Australia 8 hours ahead.)

As a general guide the most active time for elephant at the water hole is 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, but there is activity at the waterhole day and night.

The cam is run by volunteers around the world, who are able to zoom and pan.

If you are having problem viewing the Web Cam please refresh your screen by holding down CTL and F5 - this will update the webcam.

Elin Hagemann, South Africa, 27/01/16 Have just returned from my 10th!!!!!! visit to Tembe, so pretty much part of the furniture now. Tembe remains my favorite GR not just for the unique elephant experiences which are waaaaaay more than mere ‘sightings’, but for the very special treatment from Tom and his staff. O, and this time I eventually got to see a Tembe Leopard, not to mention those elusive Lion that we tracked for 3 days before seeing them right next to the road at Mfuneni. I will be back!!!    read more comments…

John and Anne Lambert, United Kingdom, 14/01/16 The two days we spent at Tembe were, without doubt, the highlight of our recent trip to Kwazulu Natal. Such a welcome, wonderful service always with a smile, excellent, unbelievable food and clean, comfortable accommodation. Our four game drives were guided by Patrick who imparted a wealth of information to us about flora and fauna including the Latin names! He found lions for us on two occasions as well as many other sightings going out of his way to make our Tembe experience as rewarding as possible. A big thank you to the whole Tembe team and Patrick in particular! We’ll be back!!!     read more comments…
