Jaldapara :- First time in my life I have done safari of an animal

First time in my life I have done safari of an animal. Elephant safari is most thrilling tour of my life.


“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing”

– Helen Keller

after our stay in Boroda Bari (


We visited Jaldapara at around 8.30 am.We were very lucky that we could see a Rhinoceros at the salt point opposite Bunglow.



We took the last trip of safari at 9 am.First time on an elephant, such a thrilling feeling. 4 elephants started walking.


“Where the wildlife breeds and breathes in unity”

Jaldapara :- The Jungle Book

The jungle was looking good from 10ft height.Though I was little nervous while ride of elephant.the experience is awsum.really life is a zoo in a jungle.Seeing elephant in a jungle & ride of elephant are two different things.



After walking sometimes 2 elephants went to the other side.The more we went inside the jungle,the deeper it got.


Look how the branches grow in every possible and different directions, yet the roots hold them firmly together, so despite of their in differences, they remain the same at their very core and in their roots.



After some times we saw a Rhinoceros.The distance was almost 8ft.



Never seen any wild animal so closely before.Superb experience. Other two elephants were walking through the other side.So the Rhinoceros started running.


But i love the rhino and the elephant chasing part.its totally different a human being we think chasing as car chasing on road  but the animal chasing is more thrilling.


Amazing experience.The safari was for 1hour. We saw total three Rhinoceros.





The name of my elephant was “manimala”. after ride she is my friend, i gave her biscuits.
