Our day started off with wildlife. We left our palace early in the morning and headed to Keoladeo Ghana National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. As a former hunting spot of the Maharajas, there are around 360 species of birds found in this park. Some biked throughout the forest and some saved their energy and used the push of a rickshaw. Accompanied by a local ornithologist, we spotted a large variety of birds and also monkeys with cute little offspring, several reptiles, deer, and turtles. We were very lucky to see an endangered species—black-necked stork—standing in the field by a water stream. Surrounded by animals, it was a beautiful start to our day.
