"We say we love flowers, yet we pluck them.
We say we love trees, yet we cut them down.
And people still wonder why some are afraid,
when told they are loved."

Hidden away in the heights of the Nilgiris, Kerala provides a vibrant fiesta both for the soul and sight. It is the land where the sky gathers its clouds to water the zillion shades of green, where the winds carries the invigorating fragrance of the first drops of rain and the herons fight to catch that first drop in their mouth. Welcome to the magical land of Kerala and rediscover life - at its wildest - in the green landscapes laden with ripe yellow mangoes that taste of summer and the hundreds of oblivious creatures that rule the terrain. Experience the unforgettable magic of seeing an elephant uprooting a tuft of grass while flapping its ears or listening to a tiger roar that puts everyone on feet or simply watching a band of langurs scaling the heights of evergreen forests - all through a spine-chilling jungle safari of Kerala.

A Romantic Cruise of The Wilds

If you are bored with colourful walls of your sweet home, now it is time for some adrenaline gush. Pack your bags, put your hunting boots and come over to the leaf-shaped land of Kerala, where you can get million reasons to explore and one more reason everytime to appreciate the beauty of the land. If one is more keen in combing denser areas of the evergreen forests and capture for some vicious creatures in one's cam, then elephant safari is the best option to go for. It is delight to see barely month-old baby deer frolic around, occassionally being bullied by the big daddy of the group. Riding a pachyderm gives you an extra privilege to explore the darker secrets from a height.

The wolves are far more easily sighted, if you are on a jeep safari. Look at those glowing yellow eyes - reflecting the same charge as the car lights - and you have to respect the sheer sense of power and magnetism that the animal exudes. You can get a forest department jeep, preferably a 4x4 vehicle for a trivial price and don't forget to hire an armed guard, among other things, to make sure you find your way back. Believe it or not, but the trick to getting the most out of the reserves, is distancing yourself from the madding crowd of herbivores and being satisfied just breathing tiger air, or sometimes its pug marks on mushy domains. The most hilarious part is that, everything looks like a tiger, when you are desperate to see one during a jungle safari. If lucky one can also catch a glimpse of a tigress (who are generally shy and do not expose themselves in front of strangers) catwalking on the sliver of wet land around the lakes - close enough to see her whiskers quiver, the slapping of her flat pink tongue against the water - and vanishing in the bushes before anyone can even blink.

In reserves, that have a lake to boast about, the best chances of viewing wildlife is by a boat ride. The reservoirs generally have many creeks, promontories and small islets, serving as habitats for wildlife. Get a boat of the forest department or KTDC and enjoy a memorable cruise on the shimmering waters of the emarald lakes. Wildlife sightings, especially that of herds of elephants, are quite frequent during the boat ride.
