Elephants having a play fight

You need to be fit and able to walk out on the trails that usually leave camp at around 5am in the morning to get the most out of the morning light but also before the soaring temperatures make trekking unpleasant. Also, once it hots up, the animals head for the shade so you are less likely to get a good sighting of elephants, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, nyala, impala, water buffalo, hyenas and if, you are really lucky, lions and leopards.  Expect amazing bird life and pristine biomes.
