The Jungle Hut

The Jungle Hut feels quite austere in terms of accommodation, especially when your previous night was spent in a former palace.  That said, while basic, it is in a lovely spot, has friendly, approachable staff, great food, cheap beer and is actually a place I'd choose to stay again quite readily.

There are a couple of ponds, a small river, grasslands, various trees,etc., within the grounds of the lodge, which actually serves to entice a lot of birdlife and wildlife, which really does bring the place to life.

We enjoyed seeing a number of different species including Brahminy Starling:

Brown-cheeked Fulvetta, these a life-species and in trees very close to our room:

Bronzed Drongo:

A Langur monkey:

Scaly-breasted Munia:

Small Minivet:

A herd of Spotted Deer, that were in the grounds every morning and I think a real vote of confidence in the staff, guests and management of The Jungle Hut:

White-bellied Drongo:

We did some birding in the grounds after lunch and then outside, but I'll cover that in my next post...
