I am planning to do a series of posts on the places we visited in the last year.This is the first in the series.This post has been in lying in the draft stages for quite a long time now and everytime I have been unable to complete it for one or the other reasons.Anyway, the Hubby being posted in the North -eastern part of the country we made this trip to the Kaziranga National Park with the two girl last December.Kaziranga in Assam is home to the One Horned Indian Rhinoceros and also a variety of other wild lives.
Since we were staying close to Tezpur which is only an hour and a half’s drive from Nagaon, we decided to make it a day’s trip.Woke up the girls in the wee hours of the morning ,packed chicken sandwiches and some juice for breakfast and set off in the hired Bolero.It was an enjoyable ride where we took in breathtaking views of the India’s North -east plains,lush tea plantations and quaint bamboo cottages.We reached the park at around 10 where we immediately took the Jeep safari which we had booked in advance.The girls were all excited as it was their first trip into a Jungle.
The Jeep safari took us into the forest on a planned route through narrow dusty roads.The forest was not a dense one as one would expect the forests to be but a dry,open grassland.The vast area was covered with tall Elephant Grass.
We are still on the lookout for the elusive Rhino but nevertheless enjoying the rustic beauty and the sounds and feel of the jungle…
Coming up soon is our rendezvous with Chameli
So stay tuned..
Bye for now..
