Jungle Safari - Pench National Park

"I will go out until the day, until the morning break -
Out to the wind's untainted kiss, the water's clean caress;
I will forget my ankle-ring and snap my picket stake.
I will revisit my lost love and playmates master less!”

                     Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Books
