This was one such day at Kabini during the monsoons. I personally believe that monsoons are the best time to visit forests simply for its soothing…

With the ‘Great Elephant Congregation’ at Kabini just a few months away, it would be nice to take a closer look at these massive mammals. Interestingly, the collective noun for elephants is ‘Parade’, and sure enough, it is one stunning parade that these mighty creatures put up for those who visit Kabini right before summer.
