Diary of Fearsome Fangra, the Jungle Cat

Day 90: I just wish mummy would just let me be, instead of watching over me all the time. I am the Fearsome Fangra and I will not be shackled!

Day 130: I like how we have different homes on different days. In a burrow one day, under a swamp rock another day, and then up in a tree hollow the next day! 

Day 145: I got scolded for climbing up a tree and sunbathing there. Mummy got so worried. But it was such a cold day. I don’t know why she didn’t just join me. 

Day 163: I caught my first mouse today! It may be small, but I’m getting there. Someday soon… it will be a big Sambar!

Day 175: Mummy and I did some people-watching today. We set off early to begin our night hunt and that’s when we saw the humans. So we stopped for a bit and I got to practice “The Stare”. Mummy does it so well. Soon, Fangra’s stare will strike fear in the hearts of all creatures!

Fun Facts

Day 190: Unlike my shackled, domesticated cousins.... I can swim! Hear me roar, fishdom! Cower in fear of the Fearsome Fangra! I finally don’t need mum to be around when I swim. Except to point out the mean crocs hiding in the lake.

Day 191: I bravely dove into the big lake and caught my first fish today. That’s how a real Jungle Cat does it! The fish was delicious and I shared it with mum. She was so proud!

Story of the Picture

After setting off on an evening safari in Udawalawe, Kushan was lucky enough to get a clear shot at this mum and child on the prowl inside the Park, not too far from from the Udawalawe.. 




Much more than just a great place to stay

"Thanks to our guide Avinka we had five great safaris staying four nights just after reopening this February. The staff made us feel so very welcome during the entire stay.

The safaries are just wonderful, and having a great guide in your vehicle makes a big difference. Avinka can spot animals you would never see and we were even lucky enough to sight leopards on the trees, close to our vehicle, and also running through the field. The wildlife is so exciting that you will have a great experience even if you don‘t see any leopards. We also had a great driver, which is essential if you drive through difficult territory. You are being taken care of the entire time, so even for those who do safaris for the first time, you will always feel safe.

The camp itself is very comfortable, you get everything you can think of, and on top of the great food being served with so much attention and friendliness. You also get wonderful vegetarian and vegan options. They put on bonfires at night, which makes it unforgettable.
When booking and making plans, you get great support from the headquarters, even if it gets difficult since you have to change your plans.
The best thing what can happen to you at the end of a vacation is when you are a bit sad to leave the place, having experienced something to remember forever, and the team does everything for this to happen. Thank you so much"
