Every morning on safari was the same. Up at 6am when the sun is just starting to show itself in the horizon and out the door by 6:30 when the sunrise is at its peak in brilliant colors. The wake-up call is provided by someone at the lodge or camp with greetings for a good morning, and a tray waiting outside your door with a drink of your choice.
I'm not a morning person. I'm far from it. But if I was greeted every morning the way I was on safari, I'd be up at 6am, without complaint, every morning for the rest of my life.
