Tourism KwaZulu-Natal installs webcam at Tembe Elephant Park
Tourism KwaZulu-Natal (TKZN), the provincial marketing and promotions body for KwaZulu-Natal, has raised the bar yet again when it comes to innovative ways to provide tourists with information and attract them into the province. In a joint venture with Tembe Elephant Park and KZN Wildlife some time ago, TKZN installed a web camera up at a hide overlooking a water hole in the Tembe Elephant Park. Additional features were added over time and the webcam now boasts a live video and live audio feed, as well night viewing since the night lights were installed to enable this. These allow a glimpse of the shy creatures which frequent the water hole after sunset and before dawn, as well as to those people who live in times zones other than ours around the world.
The latest development undertaken by TKZN has been to install the live video and audio Tembe Elephant Webcam feed onto a large desk monitor at the TKZN tourist information desk at the King Shaka International Airport in Durban. In the few days since it was installed it has already attracted immense interest from tourists in the airport. TKZN is also confident that it will act as yet another enticement to draw tourists into the province to experience its offerings for themselves.
