"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Through The Wilds Of Wayanad


Our route from Calicut climbed the Western Ghats into the Wayanad hills.

There we stopped for refreshment while Simon, our driver, phoned ahead to arrange bookings for the night’s accommodation.


We came across a couple of mahouts with their elephant. 

All were busy washing.


Our journey then continued through avenues of bamboo,

Into the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu.

    How beautiful, your adopted country. To see an elephant in its native element must be so special. I do envy you, but thank you for allowing me to come on tour with you.
