Africa is harsh from both a weather, wildlife & human perspective. Camera traps are tough, weatherproof and are designed to be left outdoors in the open but they are not immune to the elements / animals and determined bi-peds. A certain degree of care, protection & security (depending on the setup location & duration) is advised to keep units operating at their optimum. Unfortunately too, theft and / or damage to ones camera trap assets, whether it be human or wildlife induced – is becoming more common. Thankfully we also have the required security accessories to greatly reduce this risk.
