The Animals of Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary

Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary is just one of the many national parks that can be found in West Bengal, India where you could have a chance to see wild animals in their natural habitat.

It was my first time to have visited a national park and to go to an elephant safari as well. It was such an overwhelming experience to see animals roaming freely.

Here are some of the animals that I saw on my trip:

Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary I don’t know what this insect is but it looks really cool 🙂

We also saw the Gaur or Indian Bison and some Sambar deers.

This is my first safari and it made me want to see more. It’s a completely different experience from my past travels and I promised myself before I left the park that this won’t be the last but instead just a beginning of my trips to more national parks around the world.

Here are some things that I’ve learned on this trip that I’d like to share with you:

1. Don’t wear shorts during the elephant safari. some of the trails go through lush vegetations and if you don’t want to be scratched by some plants that you don’t know, wear pants, long sleeves and a comfortable pair of shoes.

2. Since the jungles of Asia are a bit damp and wet, put on some mosquito repellent.

3. Take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints. 🙂 Cliche but true!
