Dawn breaks in golden bands as we start our day in the bush by scanning the river from our tent’s veranda with a cup of steaming coffee in hand. Before the dew is off the grass, we’re off in pursuit of the elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetahs that thrive in the reserve’s grasslands and acacia woodlands. Therefore, the day is spent in alternating pursuits of exploration in the bush and relaxation in our cozy camp or Lodge. Overnight at Umoja Camp
