We expected to see a few animals, as per that suggested by the guide, however all we saw were dears and monkeys. The path that led us in was beautiful and green.

The drive was good with elephant and deer sightings, guides could be much better. They do not seem to pass on much information.

Better take the first safari and the morning one. Tiger sighting is almost impossible. If lucky can spot elephants. Else deers, peacocks and wild bison is all you see.
