FUN-travel: Nature in Nagerhole

November 20, 2016 by  

  • And its nature at its finest…in this 247 square-mile national park…

…with an astonishing abundance of wildlife…and its tropical forest.

  • Much lusher…and in our opinion…much better than Rathambhore.

Total of 2 Safari’s…

Not so FUN-fact – On November 8th, India decided to pull all 500 & 1000 bank notes off the market in an effort to curb “black market” money. No one knew this was going to happen until they woke up and found out their money was worth nothing. What this has done is wreak total havoc and caused long bank lines trying to turn in old money for new money. And they don’t have enough printed so even ATM’s are running out. And on top of that, they will only give you 2000 rupees at a time which is equivalent to $30 US!

FUN-travel Tip – never leave home without plenty of cash in small denominations. Everybody takes US dollars! You don’t ever want to be stuck without cash anywhere. We fortunately were prepared for possible issues in Burma that never happened so we are OK.
