It is dawn in South Africa and the sky is aglow in hues of purple and pink. Crickets and birds are singing the peaceful song of the African plains while large birds gather along the water’s edge, searching for their breakfast in the moist, sandy soil. The air is calm, creating the appearance of glass on the waterhole; disturbed only when an occasional bug touches the surface. Grasses and shrubs grow tall along the water’s edge, separating the dusty path from the cool water. The birds laugh, or at least it sounds like they are laughing as they stand fearless, no predator in sight.
Morning on the Sabi Sands Game Reserve in Greater Kruger Park is a peaceful time, both for guests and wildlife.
