A little getaway

We decided to take a long weekend safari in the southern Nepali national park of Chitwan. At 3:30 pm we boarded a rickety, antique twin propeller plane with a father and son from Denmark. Less than one hour later, we landed on a grass runway just outside the park.

A small bus then drove us to the edge of a river and we disembarked and boarded a small canoe. On the other side we hopped in an open top vehicle from the 1940’s. The ride into the park was beautiful. Lush, tall, green grass dominated the landscape.

After 45 minutes, we arrived at our lodge in the heart of the park. From our balcony we hear the calls of exotic birds and watch rhinos graze in the grassy plain.
