Elephant Safari, by Kamalesh Das

This is the Murti riverside elephant safari in Dhupjhora range of Gorumara wildlife Sanctuary, West bengal, India. This shot was taken at early morning of first day of our tour. Dense fog slowly disappeared with the advent of the first light of the day. I took this shot from our elephant. In the picture there is a little boy with his father who showed him various wild animals of the dawn from the elephant. The boy was probably amazed to see the vast glory of nature.

    The image says it all. A superb one I must say. I have been to Gorumara 3 times and experienced the elephant safari each time there. Yatra Prasad watch tower is the best I think.

    BDW it is a nice post to come across. Congrats…! I have shared my experiences in my blog, you may have a look.
