Any morning waking up in the Kruger is a blessing but if we have to single out a camp must be Biyamiti - Going to Gorongosa in Mozambique this weekend - missing Kruger like crazy but will settle for Gorongosa

That is a toss between Olifants perimeter and Punda tents.... Can I choose both?

But here comes my argument, is it not at times the smaller creatures and prolific birdlife in and around camp that leaves the fondest of memories with many a Kruger fanatic?

Nope :wink: :lol:

Perhaps I will join the perimeter watch in 20 years time :lol:

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: .

Agreed!!
I have seen and heard cool things camping at the fence before the sun rises before gate opening!!
But no ways will I be in camp when the gates open :twisted:

I love anywhere, but Lower Sabie does edge ahead.

If I am at the tents, I love to watch the river. If I am at the bungalows, the bird sounds are magic from the large ancient trees.

I find my contribution quiet in the very early morning, but it wakes up with aplomb from about 08h00.

That is of course Talamati. On the last 3 occasions I spent the morning just sitting in the hide looking over the waterhole watching Impala, Zebra, Wildebeest, Kudu, Waterbuck, Buffalo, Sable and baboon coming down to drink. The fence around Talamati is also very active in the mornings with Elephant and Kudus coming right up to the fence on the riverbed side of the camp almost daily. (Whenever I was there at least)

:thumbs_up: Leaping Lizards. We have also been lucky at this Camp for good early morning sightings.

Another camp is Shingwedzi, lots of birds and loads of Kruger atmosphere.

Here are few pics from the Hide at Talamati in the morning.

(My first time posting pics, I hope this is right)

If this works, then I will have to do a trip report.

I am an early riser – 4 o’clock and I’m already ready on the Stoep … nothing beats Kruger at that time of the morning therefore it is the start of a perfect Kruger day for me – and then when the gates open we leave the camp for the wide open spaces where the animals roam free - that is the Kruger we know.
