Anyway, I've not only become...

Yes, it was lovely & quiet with clean air but the guide didn't have much to say. I'm hoping to one day see the parks mentioned by others & not just for the tigers, for the whole atmosphere.

Seems like a very reasonable itinerary.

Be sure to get to Ranakpur for the awesome 600 yr. ol Jain temple out in the countryside of Udaipur. You can hire a taxi for a 1/2 day or less trip. We...
