Not gorillas in the mist - just elephants in the rain
Review of Elephant Safari, Thekkady by koshkha

Advantages: Who can resist elephants?
Disadvantages: Rather too much of a 'production line' tourist experience.

Nelly Love I love elephants – I suspect most people do, if not the physical reality of one charging towards them, then at least the idea of elephants is very appealing. There’s something so compelling about their slow, plodding nature, their f ... Read review

Advantages: It works
Disadvantages: I can't guarantee how long it will stay so lovely

The carpet did give me a bit of a headache after a long flight plus an unscheduled 2 hour stop in Nagpur due to unseasonable fog in Delhi. Baggage was still taking a silly amount of time in late 2010 but the domestic side was also shiny and new by then. I know it's mad but I do kind of miss the old "Indianness" of the airport by BristolBud
