A Princely Jungle Moment!

What constitutes a princely jungle moment? Well, it varies with person to person, but for me, it is sitting on an elephant and exploring the jungle from a near-perfect position.

The elephant offers better view owing to its height, allows you to go closer to the wild denizens and gives you all-round motion capabilities. It is slightly uncomfortable to sit on, but that is the beauty of it.

The sheer vision of sitting on an elephant and commanding a view that is otherwise nearly impossible, the power you get in shooting (lens shooting) the wildlife makes you feel like princely material.

I do understand that this goes against animal rights, but if we were to feed the already tamed elephants well and not torture them, then I guess this is a good possibility.
