Early morning at 5am,we had a jungle safari to Kali Tiger Reserve which is supposed to house tigers and black panthers. But the unlucky lot that we were, we ended up seeing only deers and peacocks. The only high point of the safari was the peak point from where you can see the whole of Dandeli. That was a pretty view to die for. You are literally among the clouds and it was magical. The safari's are charged around 600-700 rs per person.
From the resort people, we got to know that they organise off-roading. We were excited but they told us that off-roading does not happen with just 2 people, so if they manage to find a crowd, we could go. We were praying it happend. The resort had cycles which was a joy. I cycled all morning through the jungles. It is so green and breezy and pretty. This was our 2nd victory in Dandeli. Later, the resort guys informed that they have found a group for off-roading. We were scared and excited because we did not know what to expect. It was going to be our 1st ever off-roading experience. The group that was joking us was an all-guys group from Hyderabad. A nice bunch of people. The off-roading was a mixed experience. We were all injured and getting thrown from the jeep from here to there. The constant chatter made the experience more fun. But it wasn't the kind of off - roading that you see in Bolero ads. The driver took it up to his ego that we weren't really enjoying his ride. He tried to show-off with his drifts, which failed royally. The other bunch was very cranky and killed the driver's spirits, but finally we got done with the activity. Off-roading also costs around 600-700 rs per person. While leaving, the guys invited us for a Diwali celebration at their resort, which was just next to ours. We agreed. Later in the night, we joined them for celebrations - burst crackers, ate and drank. All was good except for the fact that I had badly burnt one of my fingers while bursting a cracker. All of us retired to our resorts for the night.
