My SO and I often do what we call a "pre-breakfast run", which is exactly what you describe in you "pajama drive". We don't set an alarm though and we don't decide beforehand that we're going to do it.
We're caravanners so we usually hear when the first vehicles start up to move to the gate. That's the moment of decision: will we? or will we not? If it is "all systems go", we hop out of bed, each put on a sweater top, grab a can of soda and off we go. Never for more than an hour, then we're back. Only then will we officially start planning our day.
What if we have a break down, will I walk back in my pyjamas? NO, I will not. I will not even walk back in my Sunday Best! Predators are not particular about the clothes you're wearing.
Somebody will eventually come by and help us out.
Pajama Drive is a better description.

:D :D we have never driven around early morning in Kruger in our nighties but is sounds tempting as a person sometimes just want to get through the gates never mind the daily necessities of life like getting dressed :lol:

You might get me out of the bush, but you won't get the bush out of me, it's deep in my heart

My alarm is the first engine that sputters to life, then I jump into the car, no combing, brushing or any such time-wasting activities.

I just grab the Pronutro, milk from the fridge and raisins and I'm off!

One of my favourites is at Lower Sabie, "race" to Sunset Dam and gulping down Pronutro, with the mist slowly rising from the Dam, then the sun coming out (in winter).

Only then can I start the day.

I recently saw someone very early morning with pajama attire who had to use the “against- the- rules-open-air-type-of-facilities” I guess due to an unforeseen emergency. Although she was not wearing pajamas when we met her again later on the day in the Camp shop she was a bit shy when she recognized us. So I guess it might be best to be dressed :hmz: .

I do not wear pajamas, and on occassion have realized that I was walking around with a flashlight an binoculars, but otherwise stark naked, having forgotten to put on my shorts. Luckily, the animals don't seem to mind. They don't carry cell phones either, thussparing me Youtube embarrassment.

Do you keep them on the whole day or do you come back to camp to change before going out again?
