      The Maruni Lodge was great. Unfortunately you can no longer stay at the Tiger Tops Lodge so world renowned till the government stepped in and closed it down because it was inside the park parameters. Best part though is that Gauri Malakar was a manager at Tiger Tops so she will make it all perfect. Rooms comfortable. Quiet other than the noises of nature. Food excellent, gardens very nice. Shower is all in one with the bathroom...workable. Evening entertainment great. Wonderful stay.

      ... dance thing on at our hotel tonight 6.15 , about now so pending anything exceptional happening tonight, other than weird malaria tablet induced hallucinations or dreams, I'll send the blog shortly. There won't be many photos from the day. Oh all right, I went to the dancing, and as usual the knee prevented me from getting up ( read hypochondria Paul you sook!) but our Intrepid group was well represented by our leader Sunil and Katie, the Perth ...

      ... poaching. However, as the carrying capacity of protected and wild areas is reached, older Tigers become less able to compete with younger ones for hunting and mating territory. They may find it easier to take down domestic animals than wild ones, bringing them to more populated areas. Which of course sets up conflict with farmers and villagers. Tigers that kill livestock or, on occasion, people, are hunted and killed. Rhinos that steal a little ...

      ... obvious by the spikes down its back, the guide told us how dangerous he was, how he lurks in wait for its prey and can easily take down buffaloes and even humans who get too close. The guides, so used to the area, could spot crocodiles so easily but my untrained eye meant at times I just had to nod along with what he was telling ...

      ... so lovely, and we couldn't believe how lucky we were! We were all whispering though, as their hearing is amazing, but their eyesight is poor, and they have a tendency to spook and charge at things they can't really see. We stood watching and marvelling for ages and he chilled out in the water, until we saw another walking group come into view on the very far side of the pool, right next to the rhino! They clearly couldn't see it, as they just carried on walking, ...

      ... was a bit too close for comfort for my liking! I did get some good pictures though! After canoeing down the river we got out and boarded two jeeps to drive deeper into the park. We stopped and had our packed lunch at the top of a (rather wobbly) wooden observation tower. The views were great but we didn't see many animals. After lunch however, we spotted several rhino - some really close up. One particular sighting was of ...
