I think that everyone that did the whole 10 day tour agreed that these last 3 days were the best. Partly because the area where the permanent tents are located is flooded and crocodiles are using the tents and partly because of the beautiful but wet scenery. They put us up in air conditioned cubicles, 2 beds and 2 people to each one. Just enough room for a set of bunk beds and that was it. But there were no mosquitos and there was a/c, so most people were happy.
Our mode of transportation for this part of the trip. When it rained, everyone but the driver got wet inside. Richard, our guide, loved to blast around at what I thought was a high speed for off road. I sat at the back for one day and I’m sure compressed part of my neck muscles from the vehicle hitting ruts in the road at high speed. He also delighted in not slowing down at sections of the road that were flooded. This would create a fan of water on each side of the truck that reached way beyond the sides of the road. You could have drenched hundreds of people if they were standing there.
Some of the tall grass that has grown due to all of the rain. The locals of this area say it has 6 seasons instead of 4. They are: 1. Cool weather time, May to June, 2. Early dry season, June to August, 3. Hot dry season, August to October, 4. Pre monsoon season, October to December, 5. Monsoon season December to March, 6. Harvest time, April.
They appear to be about 4-5 feet tall. We couldn’t get any closer to them to tell. We were told that there are people who knock them over for fun, so they are trying to keep them safe. Some fun, knocking over a creatures home that took years to build.
