On Friday Jan 30th morning myself, my wife Bhavya, my daughter Sanya & my wife's twin sister Divya left to Coorg by car, as usual we had the best Tatte idli breakfast at Bidadi. One should taste this idli who ever travels on Bangalore to Mysore Highway. We stopped at Kushalnagar for lunch & then decided to go to Dubare elephant camp. We had visited before our kid Sanya had born, we reached by 3-30pm & took up the white water rafting in river Cauveri. Wow what an experience it was after long time, refreshing to the core once again. Had fun feeding banana (a big bunch) to the tamed elephants at the camp. Then headed to the resort which is 5kms away from Madikeri, we had a warm welcome with Arathi & Thilaka in Indian traditional method.
The resort is very well designed, the cars cant reach your appartment, They took us in a (Buggie) battery operated car with our laguage to drop to our apartment. The land is very undualating so u can't every time walk down & Up. We got fresh by the time it was 6-30pm.
We took a walk around place where all other guest had gathered, at 7pm magic show for kids started & it was fun for us also. then left to dining hall & for our surprise we had 21varities of dishes & 6 varities of deserts for our dinner, fact was we got confused what to eat which one to skip, & the food was awesome taste. Next two days we enjoyed in the resort using cluod9 (gym), Swimming, etc. A great fun was giant chess which is situated outdoor.
Sunday we left to Bangalore from Madikeri & thought of visit our farm near Nagarhole on the way, then decided to visit Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary, as i was planning to visit this place for birds photography from long time. We had lunch on the way & reached RBS by 4pm & lighting was good for photography.
We hired a boat for the safari. We found lot of birds migrated from other parts of the globe. Crocodile made quite some good photos & left to Bangalore. Overall it was a luxury & wildlife trip experience.
