Nargahole safari and nearby village

The Kabini River Lodge at Nargahole National Park was actually a pretty nice visit. I got a couple of days to rest and recouperate and a day to go on a safari. The lodge has accommodations ranging from luxury tents to the very nice cottages that we had right on the edge of the lake. All our meals were included but the meal times weren’t what we were used to. Breakfast at 9:30, lunch at 1:30 and dinner at 8:30. I didn’t eat much while there because I was feeling under the weather but for what I had it was pretty good.

Yesterday was our last day at the national park and I finally had the energy to take a three hour safari. There was only five of us in the jeep aside from the guide and the driver. We saw lots of spotted deer and some interesting birds, some wild boar, water buffalo and best of all some wild elephants. The photos are below and as usual you can click on any image for a larger view. Keep in mind that it was hard to get a sharply focused picture in a moving jeep.
