7 nights, 10 game drives, 2 jungle walks…it all sounds so much and so leisurely at the outset of the week, and here we are, nearly at the end of our Kaziranga trip, wondering where on earth did the days go?
A jungle holiday – just like a bush holiday in Africa – is pretty exhausting. Totally and utterly fabuloso, but pretty tiring.
Up at dawn every day to be at the park gates bright and early.
Packed breakfast on the go.
Morning game drive.
Back for lunch, with usually about half an hour down time to recharge batteries, download photos, and then it’s off for the afternoon game drive.
Back to the lodge in the evening dark (& cold at this time of the year).
Cup of tea.
Recharge batteries, download photos etc.
Plan to read/chat/play board games, but that usually lasts about 30 minutes, tops, before early dinner.
Collapse into bed, ready for 5am wake up.
And you thought it was all lolling around, right?
We have seen such beauty and such gorgeousness, and driven for miles, and seen so many wonderful animals and birds, and breathed such clean air, that it will be a struggle to return to Delhi…
Tiger, Hoolock gibbons, rhinos and ellies galore, fabulous hornbills, otters – oh it is all too, too lovely.
I want to stay here for ever.
