Hammerkops are building a nest! Their nests can be six feet high and weigh over 100 pounds — so large that other animals use it even while the birds are incubating their eggs. Even though they are building a nest, the birds may not use it. If they do — the mom will lay three to seven eggs and both parents will incubate them for about a month. Watch the Kenya river cam to see the Hammerkops in action.
June to October: Dry Season
Lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, and rhinos are the most famous Kenya animals, known as "The Big 5." See these animals in their natural habitats along with giraffes, zebras, hippos, warthogs, antelopes, gazelles, and many distinctive bird species.
Four cameras bring you the sights and sounds of a river oasis:
Animal Lookout Cam
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.
River Wildlife Cam
This cam is sighted upriver from the hippo pool at a bend in the river. You can see ellies, giraffes, kudus, and more as they browse and wander along the riverside.
Watering Hole Cam
The view from this cam overlaps with the African River Wildlife camera, but with a lower angle.
This infrared cam has a fixed 30-degree view of the main beach at the hippo pool.
