Enjoy an ‘armchair safari’ while watching these live wildlife cameras! From Elephants in Africa, nesting hummingbirds in California and waterholes in South Africa, there is plenty of wildlife action happening right this minute, for you to enjoy with a cup of tea from the comfort of your living room.

Tips from Sara:

  • Double click the video to play it full screen
  • If no wildlife is around, just check back later! Species are often most active at dawn and dusk, especially in hot countries
  • Most cameras will be on a different time zone from you, so the best viewing times might be different from where you are watching

For more live wildlife viewing from your living room, tune in to watch past recordings of our incredibly popular Virtual Tours.

Bird table at Canopy Lodge: Panama

This camera is located in the grounds of the Canopy Lodge in El Valle de Antón, Panama. This site is just over 2,000 ft above sea level in the low mountains of Cerro Gaital, with a mild springtime climate year-round. A small stream called Rio Guayabo runs past the feeders in the background, and the lush landscaping of the Canopy Lodge grounds grade into the forested slopes around them.

Cornell Lab of Ornithology garden bird table: New York

This camera is located in the Treman Bird Feeding Garden at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, New York. Perched on the edge of both Sapsucker Woods and its 10-acre pond, these feeders attract both forest species (such as chickadees and woodpeckers), as well as species preferring open environments near water, such as Red-winged Blackbirds.


Badgers: Essex

This Badger sett is in one of the Essex Wildlife Trust nature reserves. The sett consists of an adult male and female, four juveniles and two cubs born last year. The best time to view the Badgers is a few hours before dusk.


Waterhole at Mpala Research Centre, Kenya

Regular sightings include elephants, hippos, giraffes, Grevy's Zebras, gazelles, crocodiles, leopards and much more!

Waterhole at Tembe Elephant Park: South Africa

Situated in an area that was once the ancient ‘Ivory Route' linking Mozambique and Zululand, Tembe Elephant Park is renowned for having the largest Elephants in Africa (and indeed, the world!). The park is remote, lying deep in the sand forests and wetlands in northern Tongaland, right on the border between KwaZulu-Natal and Mozambique. In addition to Elephants, you can see the rest of the Big Five: African Lion, African Leopard, Black and White Rhino and Cape Buffalo and over 340 bird species.
