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 picks up the view from where the high and low hippo-cams drop off, and goes quite a distance upriver.
