Wildlife Sightings

Lifescapes

This is the jungle! Here life beats to the rhythms of nature. For the novice these are barely noticeable at first. Nature unfolds her secrets one page at a time. The secret to success is an ability to wait and watch. Reality is far different from the thrills of instant gratification available to the urban dweller through his TV screen.

Life in the jungle has its share of thrills and spills; however, these are punctuated with long intervals of calm. To truly understand the wild one needs to disconnect with the world of deadlines and reconnect to the world as god intended it to be.

20 Days in Kabini – Part 11

From what I said earlier, you get an idea of how well-managed the Nagarhole National Park is. To entertain such vast numbers of animals requires constant vigilance against poaching, illegal hunting, human impact, cattle grazing and so on. Read more
