African Wildlife Webcam

This African wildlife camera is provided by National geographic and shows scenes from Botswana. Please note that the camera is not always live and sometimes shows recorded scenes, however all of these wildlife scenes are taken by the webcam. Botswana with a population of just under two million, is the 47th largest country in the world slightly smaller than Texas, although some 70% of its land is covered by the Kalahari Desert. Botswana is around 90% savannah (topography, above right), an ecosystem of dispersed trees and grassy woodland and is host to three national parks; the Chobe National Park, the Nxai Pan and Makgadikgadi National Park and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. It also is home to seven major game reserves in addition to numerous private game reserves.
