What to expect and not to expect
Remember you tour is into the natural areas, not in captivity and hence sighting of major wildlife depends entirely on their movement and the chances you go through. Sometime you will be lucky to be able to sight almost all major animals from the park and but some time may be very few major animals or could be nothing at some point. However, taking a walk, elephant back safari or boat/canoe into the nature is never disappointing for the nature lovers. There is always an opportunity to come across many beautiful birds and animals signs, which is equally rewarding experience being in the nature.
Please carry the books on wildlife and birds and a pair of binocular. It’s such a nice experience to note down what you come across along the trail, a camera beside other essentials if you are on the long walk out.
