Mara Bushtops, the only safari camp in the Maasai Mara with a substantial natural salt lick directly in front of its camp, has launched a new webcam with high speed internet ensuring a permanent live feed from one of Kenya's wildlife hotspots. Watch all the action here (@Bushtops on YouTube) .
A steady stream of wildlife visits the salt lick day and night, still visible after sunset via infrared technology, in search of the minerals needed for healthy bones. This creates a constantly shifting nature show, as gazelle jostle with warthogs, zebra and impala, topi and buffalo. Herds of elephant can be joined by up to 40 giraffe at any given time – with predators such as leopards and lions in attendance. What a privilege to have this permanent window to the wild!
Most of the action occurs between 10AM - 4PM Kenya time (GMT +3) but viewers around the globe can also browse through the previous 12 hours of footage recorded in case they missed something.
Owned and managed by the third generation Stuart family, Andy and Claudia have established three unique camps in East Africa that offer a superlative wild luxury experience under canvas. Their first camp, Mara Bushtops, sited in a private concession on the fringe of Kenya's Maasai Mara National Park, overlooks a natural salt lick which attracts diverse wildlife from miles around. Positioned along the pathway of the annual wildebeest migration, they also have two camps in Tanzania, Serengeti Bushtops in the northern Serengeti and Roving Bushtops, unique mobile camp which moves seasonally between central and southern Serengeti, in sync with the famous wildebeest migration.
