Once the exclusive hunting ground of the erstwhile maharajas of Mysore, the Nagarhole forest reserve is today counted as one of India’s best wildlife parks. To best explore the wild treasures that inhabit this rich tropical forest, I highly recommend the jeep & boat safaris conducted by Karnataka Tourism.

A herd of elephants saunters away from the Kabini river.
A walk in the rain. Tusker enjoying a sudden downpour.
Smooth-coated otters. An excited naturalist shared they were a rare sighting.
The roof of my cottage beckons invitingly as we return from the river safari completely drenched!
