Setting up a remote network cam 2 monitor wildlife

A part networking, part general set up question:

I want to set up a remote streaming webcam overlooking a waterhole in a Zambian national park and wanted to hear what the experts thought the best approach would be.

I was thinking of a network cam that was standalone (not needing a PC to connect to) since that would save a lot of power (planning to use a solar panel).

As far as the internet connection is concerned: a VSAT satellite dish works at the main lodge with decent speeds but the webcam location would be few kilometres away... Is a new dish necessary or is there some new tech (WiMAX?) that could save a lot of cash?
