A Random Jungle Safari Along The Waterfalls of Raneh

Gubu and I took the motorcycle out for a spin. He kept egging me on to ride it myself, but I sensibly refused! Our plan was to visit the Waterfalls of Raneh, but we were treated to a jungle safari as well! AND it only cost Rs 60 for the two of us (we stayed on the motorcycle).

We spotted a crocodile!

We saw many wild antelope, spotted deer, black-faced monkeys, a mongoose, a jackal, vultures. We stopped at the edge of a cliff to look down into the river, where we spotted a crocodile! You could see the outline of the large reptile (probably 2 metres long) swimming in the river.

At the waterfalls, there wasn’t enough water to fall. However, the canyon was a feast for the eyes and for the ears. We called out loudly several times to catch the echoes coming back to us.

In the evening, as we did the night before, I was invited to the family home for dinner. It was an absolute honour to have been served chicken curry, I said I eat chicken on special occasions (I’m a bad vegetarian). Being an expensive commodity, chicken and indeed meats in general are only served at very special occasions – it was easily the best chicken curry I have ever eaten!
