Sunrise is a great time for wildlife spotting as animals tend to be the most active during the "golden hours", when the first rays of sunshine come to rest on the savannah. Few predators hunt during the heat of the day, so the early morning is the best time to observe the thrill of the chase, or at least the aftermath of a hunt.
