This is where I watch the sunrise.

I am usually the first up in the morning, so this is what others missed.

The Mapunbubwe baboons are also unique.

In the early morning they can be seen hanging from rocks. The leopard is their most deadly enemy and they have adapted he most unique survival strategies.
