Fantastic sighting of Mom and young Giraffe.  :biggrin3. Did you see Pat Nebraska's video of Aardvark sighting also? Brief but clear scenes.

I didn't even know they could run, This is so cool to see these videos. Here in Ohio I can't seem to stay up to see the cam, or get up early enough I can't figure it out yet

They are 9 to 10 hours ahead of Pacific time, depending on daylight savings here or not. Sooo, 7 to 8 hours ahead for Ohio?  We used to have hour differences posted when Safari's were being done. I think it is midnight there now.
Actually this cam is up 24 hours a day, unless a problem. So we can see it anytime. You never know when a great sighting will take place. Their night time or daytime. There are volunteers who man the cams around the clock. Although there might not be one on every moment.

Cinnemon, welcome on board !  Too funny, some of us here have stubby fingers from calculating time changes between North American zones and Africa.  :eclol   Beth was right when she said it was midnight in Pond / Djuma areas when she anserered above.

Except for a few locations, Africa does not change time. I use Johannesburg when calculating African time for the cams from this site: World Time Converter.

Currently they are 6 hours ahead of EDT
 (becomes 10 hours when we fall back an hour in the fall)

So, as I type :
Monday, May 7, 2012 at 4:13 PM Pacific Time  =   7:13 PM EDT (Ohio) = Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 01:13 AM CAT (Central African Time)

I hope this helps  :nod2

Enjoy watching the Pond and / or Djuma Waterhole Cam

 :ecsmile

I so agree. We can connect the computer to the TV and have it on in background, and look as we can. :wub
