Sabi Sands Preserve

Hello,

 

I have been spending too many hours watching a live webcam feed from the Sabi Sands Preserve. It's very interesting to watch, and see what animals may show up next.

 

So, what I was wondering, is if caching was allowed on the preserve. I thought it would be fun to have someone place a cache in the trees you can see in the distance....

 

Sorry if this is just another dumb idea, but since I may never actually visit So. Africa, I thought I could live vicariously through the webcam! :rolleyes:

Two problems on placing a cache here.

 

1. This is big five country and you can't just walk around and up to a tree like that.

 

2. For the locals, it is a bit expensive to go to the Game Park, so don't think you will get many cahcers that would go there

 

Is "big 5" a reference to dangerous animals?

 

I didn't realize it was a paid admission park. After I posted, I thought about it, and I figured the owners of the cam wouldn't appreciate cachers anyway...it would scare the animals away. :)

 

Thanks for the feedback!

Don't think the Geo's will scare the animals but the other way around.

No, I'd say they aren't!

 

In fact, the webcam is currently showing a herd of buffalo in the water right now. B)

Interesting link. I am still thinking of doing a webcam cache here in Cape Town. No BIG 5 nearby, but one large mountain in the background.

 

Lots of birds chirping, no animals...

 

As far as I can recall webcam caches have gone the same way as virtuals and aren't being approved anymore.

 

I believe you are correct. That is why I thought it would be fun to have a live webcam, with audio, and place a traditional cache within view. You would never know who was watching you fumbling around for the cache. :unsure:
