We’re all going a little crazy while stuck indoors; however, some great websites offer beautiful live streams of several locations, be it a tropical beach or an exotic landmark. Check out the list below to see our favorite live streams. While you're looking, make sure to explore further for more spectacular spots.
Go on a safari
Have you ever wanted to go on a South African Safari? Check out Africam! The Africam highlights several watering holes that are known to be wild animal hotspots and even has a library of great footage to check out for more videos of these animals as they go about their day.
Spot the Loch Ness Monster
There’s a monster hunter in all of us, so keep your eyes peeled for the mother of all creatures — the Loch Ness Monster! Check out the Loch Ness Live Stream for a chance to catch a glimpse of Nessie. You can also take the time to admire the beauty of the Scottish Highlands while sipping your morning tea.
See an active volcano
For the more adventurous among us, great active volcano cams await! The US Geological Survey has set up a few incredible static streaming cams on Hawaiin volcanoes — such as Halemaʻumaʻu and Kīlauea Caldera. The site even includes a few cameras with thermal imaging.
Explore a tropical reef
Explore.org has a section focusing on several tanks in The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. Check out adorable penguins in the aquarium’s Penguin Beach, spy some jellyfish in the Jellyfish Tank and watch some sharks in the Shark Lagoon. The Explore.org website also has several other nature-focused live streams.
Visit a national park
The US National Parks are incredibly beautiful, but what do you do when they’re closed or too far away? The National Park Service (NPS) has a great series of live stream cameras to check out on their official website. From Yellowstone to Glacier National Park, the NPS virtually takes you there. The site also has a vast library of various natural events and wild animals captured via these webcams.
With these websites, you can visit fantastic places around the world, at least virtually! And when things open up and you're ready for a road trip to see some of these places in person, get prepared with an extended auto warranty.
