Kanha Safari – As Experiential as it Gets

I visited Kanha National Park this April, along with family, for a tiger safari of a lifetime. Here’s my experience.

My family and I arrived at Kanha Earth Lodge on a pleasant Wednesday afternoon and started the action with a short picnic by the riverside. Chinmay, our guide, drove us to a spot where we were greeted by the sight of the picnic arranged on a sand bank in the middle of the river! The river was shallow enough to be crossed on foot but it was flowing and deep enough for fish life which made it a good spot to bird watch.

It was an entire decade later, when I began my gap-year with Wildlife S.O.S, that a smirking field biologist informed me that chameleons are not found in North India.
