hey it’s Arwa welcome back to the corner shop! This post is going to be about my recent rendezvous to Kabini. For those of you who don’t know Kabini is a forest reserve kinda place in India specifically in Karnataka and a 5 hour drive from where I live.
Our impromptu journey consisting of 2 families including us and began at 6:30 am and our first stop was for breakfast of muffins, samosas and hot tea! the road trip was pleasant enough with perfect weather and time flew by 😉 We reached at 12 considering the breaks we took, and checked in to our hotel- The Serai
After a scrumptious lunch we opted for a safari hoping to see a big cat live but luck didn’t favour us. however its a thrill seeing a majestic tiger in front of you in a cage but the beauty of seeing it roaming freely is a whole new vibe. we however did see several spotted deer, Sambar and tuskers along with a few species of exquisite birds (pictures below)
we came back after sunset and then took turns taking a shower and prepared ourselves for dinner. After dinner we decided to take a walk around the property and digest the food.
the next day our parents planned a spa for themselves, my dad stayed back and took us for a kayak ride in the lake facing our room. It was a first time experience for me and I enjoyed myself among the cool water. After finishing our ride we decided to try our hands on several sports like table tennis, billiards, carrom etc.
Just then the parents came back from their relaxation session and we decided to have lunch once we reached our room and rested for a while. well, during that time my dad decided to try sitting on the hammock and as he covered his eyes to shield them from the sun he called upon my brother to swing him gently. My brother who was younger than me called his friends and they started pushing the hammock in a rather aggressive way id like to say and the result was that my father fell from the hammock actually let me rephrase it the hammock fell from its pole. The injury was somewhat serious as we decided to give him little rest and moved for lunch in solemnity!
after dinner we cycled around the property and then waited near the lake to view the sunset and it truly was magnificent as the colours merged and played with each other I was spellbound! we later had dinner and packed for the next day to leave.
Anyway that was it thank you for reading ❤ if you liked this do like and leave a comment! till we meet again ciao 😉
