Wild Weekend With Wife

Well! Now don't let the imaginations fly....

From right after the wedding, me and my wife were planning for a weekend getaway. So we decided to combine the republic day holiday and decided to head towards Kabini & coorg. Though i wanted to write a detailed travelogue, right now in a mood to only put a gist of the trip (blame it on my laziness)
Kabini River Lodge
Spent around 24hrs, post noon day 1 to noon time day 2.

Buffet Lunch
Evening Safari in open top jeep
Movie show
Buffet Dinner
Morning Safari
Buffet Brunch
Coracle/Speed boat ride along backwaters of kabini reservoir

Everything about the resort - Location, Resort ambiance, Comforts, people and especially the naturalists.
We spotted a lazy leopard perched on a branch of a tree some 50mts away
We were very very lucky to spot the striped yellow animal, yeah the Tiger in wild and that too very close at around 30ft from where we were. Words cannot express the whatta feeling...
Our naturalist "Prasanna" - he gave a new experience to our safari.

Some of the pix are posted...for the complete set visit Chanzimages.

Went through the KSTDC 2 day package tour. After Kabini this was not so exciting for us. Coorg was a nice place, apt for a relaxed stay for a week or so. 

Bylakuppe Tibetian monastry was worth visiting...

Cauvery Nisargadhama was a good location for a peaceful family picnic for a day, with river flowing nice and cold...

Raja's seat in madikeri was nice only for sun set...other than that it's just elevation

Abbey falls was ok...problem was you can't go to the falls, all you can do is to view it from a suspension bridge in front of it.

Talacauvery and Bramhagiri peak view were really good and worth visiting.

The best time we had during this was with our guide, with his english speaking skills (though appreciate his efforts) he entertained us both awesomely...(will try and put the recording :-P)

Nice Photographs..How was the food there? If it is ok, we might take up when we gather some 5 to 6 people for company;p

@CG, Resort was just too good and the food was equally superb. I would suggest you to go with less crowd for this place to enjoy well...

Manisha gave a stare after reading this...but being early days i managed to escape with that :-P

I am a proud
