Here’s the latest collection of cool nature webcams for you to enjoy.
Different species of wildlife are active during different times of the year, so I will switch out the webcams periodically in order to maximize your viewing of the beautiful wonders on our amazing planet. Make sure you bookmark this page so you can come back often!
Keep in mind, the local daylight for each cam plays a huge factor. For your convenience, I’ve included the best viewing times as well as the time zone in which each webcam is located. Also, if the cam is not in “live stream” mode (usually during “off hours” due to lack of wildlife activity or darkness), the administrator of each cam may then post highlights of previous streams. I’ve tried to strategically choose the most active cams in my best attempt to minimize those off hours.
African Cams (4 different cams)
Location: Laikipia County, Central Kenya
Best time: 6 am – 7 pm
Time zone: Eastern Africa Time
Cam #1 — African Animal Lookout: This cam pans about 120 degrees from the fever trees just to the left of the hippo pool all the way upriver to “Basking Beach.” The view overlaps with that of the African River Wildlife Camera (Cam #2).
Cam #2 — African River Wildlife: This cam is sighted upriver from the hippo pool at a bend in the river. It allows you to follow wildlife corridors on both sides of the river. You can see ellies, giraffes, kudus, etc. as they browse and wander along the riverside, often on their way to the hippo pool and basking beach watering holes. This cam goes quite a distance upriver.
Cam #3 — African Wildlife Safari: This infrared cam has a fixed 30-degree view of the main beach at the hippo pool.
Cam #4 — African Watering Hole: This cam pans about 120 degrees from the fever trees just to the left of the hippo pool all the way upriver to “Basking Beach.” Like Cam #1, this view overlaps with that of the African River Wildlife Camera, but with a lower angle.

Manatee Cam: This comes from the Wild Manatee Cam at Blue Spring State Park, courtesy of TheNatureFan’s partnership with Save the Manatee Club. Live streaming here depends on the water temperature at the Park, so manatee season here runs from mid-November to mid-March.
