I am the wilderness lost in man
Edward Abbey had rightly said 'wilderness is not a luxury; it is a necessity of the human spirit'. A sojourn into the lap of wilderness can bring freedom from the wasteland of routine life. Safari lodges offer great opportunity to live in the time and space of wildlife region – which follows its own clock and rhythm.
