What an amazing way to end the safari!!!

Drove back to Mysore, packed, and went to dinner at a rooftop revolving restaurant from where we watched the illuminated Mysore palace…

Tomorrow we say goodbye to Mysore and our trusty driver Shivu and leave for New Delhi for a couple of days of adventure there…stay tuned!
