Do I have an interesting and educational website for grandparents and your grandchildren! I can't take all the credit, though. I discovered this from Sue when visiting for Rednesday a while back. I'm so glad she shared this with me and I'm so enjoying sharing it with you! "What is it," you ask, with baited breath?
It's a live, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, interactive African wildlife safari via website, complete with manned live video cameras that provide stereo sound and night vision. It's a great educational opportunity for our grandkids. For those of us caring for elderly parents, it can be an intriguing "show" to share with them as well. And it's just plain fascinating!
I do have to warn you, though, it does require patience. Sometimes you'll see more than at other times. I'd recommend checking it out yourself several times and get a feel for what are the best times. But overall, it's intriguing and educational for grandparents and grandchildren alike. AND they even offer recorded video highlights of some of the best animal encounters, like the very fascinating Cheetahs that are hopefully showing in a video in the top right column (can you tell I've been having blog/video issues!! - If the video isn't showing in the top right column, just click here.)
So grab your grandkids, scoop up their wild animal Webkinz stuffed animals like the Tiger Snake and the Crocodile, and settle down in front of the computer for some real live wildlife for the Sandwich Generation!
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them very much and read each one. I also do my best to reply to them all but, as you can imagine, there are times (many times, lately :) ) when caregiving needs do not allow for that. Thank you for your patience and your sweet comments.
