Kaziranga National Park-Part 3

Welcome back to the Jungle.So,we had a sumptuous lunch and went straight to where Chameli was waiting for us.Oh!let me introduce her to you…

Chameli ready to push off

The best way to get a feel of this particular forest is on an elephant’s back and Chameli did full justice to our expectations.The kids were thrilled¬† to see her.I was a little apprehensive but Chameli was too cute and friendly.But the moment she entered the jungle I saw her true spirit.She was fast,she was smart and she knew where to go.And soon enough we saw ourselves (or rather Chameli)in hot pursuit of a Mother and Baby Rhino pair.All the cameras went berserk clicking and flashing.

And this last one for my Star…even her shadow looks gorgeous…Doesn’t it?
