Jungle Safari at Dudhwa National Park
Elephant Safari in the interiors of Dudhwa National Park
Guided Nature Walks around the periphery of the Kishanpur Wildlife Sanctuary were very insightful. We got to know about the habitats and characteristics of a number of wild animals and learnt to identify a lot of indigenous flora. Walking through the autumn-hued sal forests in the cold was a beautiful experience.
