Some quotes by famous UK artists after the November trip be free to use them!

Harriet Mead
“The EEC is a great base for the trip. With unrestricted access to the surrounding meadows and forest edge, it makes for fantastic birding and mammal experiences. The highlight for me was the bamboo forest, the meadows and the trip to the fort. The cliff at the fort where vultures swirl above, next to and below you was wonderful .My glimpse of a tigress and her almost full grown cub was a thrilling moment, it was just a shame that the majority of the inhabitants of the jeep were looking in the wrong direction……”
Robert Greenhalf
“India was an unforgettable experience. The forest pasture surrounding the ANF Lodge was so rich in bird life that it was difficult to decide what to look at first, and I never did work out what everything was. The park offered masses of deer, monkeys and other mammals, yet more birds including two species of hornbill and eye-level views of dozens of vultures, all in a stunning landscape”
Kim Atkinson
“Missing you all ever so much! Thank you for such a lovely trip, it was beautiful, and you gathered together a very special group of people. So good to spend time in the areas of the park where other jeeps seldom stray. The waterhole is a fantastic source of interest, close enough to watch with tea in hand. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to travel with good friends from the world over, as well as to meet new ones, European and Indian”
