Lake safari at Periyar Tiger Reserve, 2010 - Rishi - 07-06-2020

Ten years ago, during a family trip of Kerala I visited Periyar Tiger Reserve. 
Due extremely dense vegetation they don't have a car-safari system because sighting chances would be near nil. Tourism is only as a nature trail near the entrance at Thekkady & the famous boat safari at parts of the reservoir on the Periyar river.

100-150ft high trees. Look massive up close.

The boat jetty... if any of you ever go there and make sure to only do the afternoon safari from 4pm. Morning safari is much drier.

First catch was a small gaur herd. There's more in the undergrowth to the left... You may see silhouettes.

I love your photos. I am pretty sure that you had great time at Periyar Tiger Reserve. I am supposed to sort out my new property in Greece by the end of this month and I plan to go to Tanzania with friends. Never been there and it was my dream for a while.

I would really love to go to Ngorongoro Crater, I saw many picture of it and I find it really beautiful. Do you recommend any specific which is better to visit?

You'll love the Crater, its a must.
What I did was Tarangire to the Serengeti then finished off with the crater.
We stopped at Oldapi Gorge *birthplace of man* on the way.
After the safaris we ended at Zanzibar.
To this day it was one of my most memorable experiences of my life.
