Mornings are wonderful, and a morning safari is the best way to start one’s day , after all, Mornings are an important time of the day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.
However, the only drawback about mornings is that they come at such an inconvenient time of the day. For me, the only thing better than a lazy morning is a misty morning. Misty mornings make me jump out of bed and head for the woods. As far as misty mornings go, the ones in Kabini are by far the best. One does not ask for the meaning of the song of a bird or the rising of the sun on a misty morning. There they are, and they are beautiful.
As I head out for a safari on a misty morning, I know that the wildlife is also enjoying it (at least I think they are), but I know that with low visibility, I don’t have much of a chance to see them. This Bob Marley song always seemed to play in my head at those times:
“Misty mornin’, don’t see no sun;
I know you’re out there somewhere having fun.
There is one mystery – yea-ea-eah – I just can’t express:
To give your more, to receive your less”.
Misty mornings in Kabini are not about the wildlife, but about the forest. The forests have a moody and surreal look, it’s as if they are teasing you with a promise of a mysterious gift that you can receive only if you approach it with the right attitude. It is the forest showing you its feminine side at its most seductive. I can never resist it, and the forest always embraces me on such mornings. Next time you find yourself in Kabini on a misty morning, take a safari. It is an experience like no other, but be warned – approach it with the right attitude!
