Wanderings–Pete’s Pond

Pete’s Pond is a National Geographic real time video of the African wildlife that uses this watering hole. Cait and I’ve seen –and heard– elephants, hyenas, all kinds of birds, and some lionesses, among other animals. Best viewing times: 4-8 pm EST (night viewing) and 12-4 am EST (dawn and early morning viewing)

From the National Geographic site: “Pete Le Roux carved Pete’s Pond into the landscape as his answer to the rampant poaching and senseless killing of Africa’s wildlife. Le Roux believed wildlife could repopulate the reserve if they avoided the Limpopo River, where poachers lurked. Using the remnants of an old irrigation system from the area’s failed attempts to grow cotton, he built a pond as an alternative watering source. The idea worked.”
