Probably Lake Panic, or the causeway just at the back of Shingwedzi Camp. :thumbs_up:

I would have to go with Lower Sabie, it may be one of the larger of the camps, but I truely love it. Have been woken by the sounds of lions chuffing and hyenas barking and I sat listened and watched the sun come up. Just slightly different to the sounds back home in England. Roll on next year when I can visit again.

Punda Maria and Witsand waterhole. Fantastic place to watch the bush come alive.

Love the early morning sounds wherever I am...
I might be out of step here :redface: but at Pretoriouskop I watched workers going to work happy to start their working day with chat and laughter... :wink:

Shingwedzi: for the beautiful morning drives along the river, from either gate.

Tamboti: for a cup of coffee & rusk on the deck, whilst Francolins cackle and wake up everything around them.

135 days until me next trip... *sigh*

If we are in camp after the sun rises(which would be a rarity)
it would have to be Tamboti or Punda in the safari tents

Sky, We also leave when gates open, however if you can stay on the perrimeter lots are happening before gate open time :thumbs_up: .

My early morning camps are Biyamiti as no one, and then Olifants and last but not least Satara. Just love Biyamiti where you have to open and close the gate by yourselves :hmz: .

Definitely Tamboti/Maroela I have never heard Hyena calls as loud anywhere else, hearing them echo through the empty timbivati river bed is just so eary.

I also love Balule, there is just something about waking up an hearing the river flowing
