There is a saying here: There are two types of people in the world- those who have seen the Taj Mahal, and those who haven't. Now, I'm not sure if that was created by the same people who gave us: "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas", but now that we've been, we understand.

... a Safari it was exactly like the movies. There were four types of deer and they were everywhere. The star attraction, though rarely seen due to the huge area of its natural surroundings and tall grass is the endangered Bengal Tiger.
