Bhubaneshwar Elephant Sanctuary Photo Essay

Chandaka Dhampara Sanctuary Photo Essay1

Located just outside of Bhubaneshwar Orissa is the Chandaka Dhampara Elephant Sanctuary


There is elephant dung on the trail so maybe we will see wild elephants.


Our Jungle-mobile.


A dog is following us so our jungle-mobile driver shows off his million dollar arm.


We saw Peacocks, Lungar Monkey, Sambar deer with huge antlers, owls, song birds and migratory birds.


To the watchtower for the view.


We went to look in the thick jungle for the Sambar deer. I thought we would not find it but I was happy to go deeper into the jungle.


In 2007 there were 67 wild elephants and in 2013 there were 27. There will be another census of elephants at the end of May, 2015.


We saw the signs of wild elephants but we only saw elephants in captivity.


I hope to go back again.
