The water is warm in Laikipia County, Central Kenya, where our African Watering Hole Cam pans 120 degrees to get all the action.

Our partners at Mpala facilitate and exemplify sustainable human-wildlife co-existence and the advancement of human livelihoods and quality of life. They do this through education, outreach, and by developing science-based solutions to guide conservation actions for the benefit of nature and human welfare. Mpala is both a 48,000-acre cattle ranch and an international biological research center. It is located in Laikipia County in central Kenya in the shadow of Mount Kenya.

The African Wildlife Cams officially launch next week, but Explore.org fans can check it out today!
