Call it “armchair safari.” National Geographic has set up a webcam at Pete’s Pond, a wildlife reserve in Botswana that is apparently teeming with animals, from elephants to wildebeests. Best viewing times fall between 7 a.m. and noon Botswana time, then again in the evening before sundown. Spiegel magazine offers a brief backgrounder on the webcam and the pond. It was getting late in Botswana when I checked the cam this morning from California. I didn’t see much.
