Into the sunrise

One of the best parts of an afternoon / evening game drive at a game reserve is stopping to enjoy a drink while the sun is setting, yet not many people would associate a game drive with a sunrise.  Visiting Kuzuko Lodge north of Port Elizabeth recently we set off on our morning game drive just before sunrise and turned right into the sun just as it was hanging above the horizon.  So where a cowboy would ride off into a sunset, we drove into the sunrise on our way to find rhino, elephant and cheetah.
