I still couldnot turn up for the meets and I wanted to have Safari experts like Kadam/Luke/Happywheels drive my vehicle for their feedback which would help me during my next service.
Beg to differ,, I can't speak for Kadam and Happywheels, but I am no expert sir.

Now that you have been certified by

Default Safari VTT-TMT 2.5-yr Ownership Scorching Summer Travel-Amazing forests of Vidarbha

Safari 2.2 LX VTT-TMT 2.5-yr Ownership Scorching Summer Grand Travel -Amazing forests of Vidarbha

Returned yesterday after a stupendous travel, that took us into interior Vidarbha - to places where all travel to where very few go.

Wildlife we saw plenty, and this was not just a tiger tour, which also incidentally was sighted and photographed.

Safari VTT-TMT was again up to task, caring for us will all the AC power it had at 48-49 degrees still not missing a grunt and bringing us back to our base each and every day.

The home journey was more bigger than the going one, we drove back from Tadoba to Calcutta, around 1500 km in 24 hours, there was office work for all to attend.

This journey particularly sealed the fact, for me at least, there is none almost to the comfort that is possible in a Safari and the best of a vehicle for touring, it would be real hard for me to adjust to something else at this price.

Some VTT pictures, few taken - almost all pictures are of vistas and wildlife.

A whole lot of thanks goes to Sutripta-da and Pramods. Sutripta-da lent me his GPS, and really that helped out in some of the interior parts. It was really amazing to see mapmyindia having places and routes of some unknown areas.

Pramod was at his host best - received us at Nagpur at mid noon, saw that we had our stomach filled up properly before we headed off to Melghat, and then escorted us out of Nagpur towards Amravati. He is a gem of a person.

CD, it had to be done - with a Leh tour costing always high, its these places that are to be seen during the son's school summer vacation.

Travelogue coming up surely, let me get the work situation somewhat stabilized.

@Adc, lovely pics as usual, really envy your travel.

@ hi Sudhan,
Your safari looks beautiful even after 3 years, looks really well maintained, if it not giving you any trouble, why bother changing it?
I have a 2.2 vtt, don't really know how much more advanced it is, but I'm sure the comfort levels are the same.

3L gives 115 bhp and 2.2 VTT gives 145 bhp.If you are satisfied with the current power of your safari then do not bother about upgrading to 2.2VTT

Love the colour combo, what is it called in Tata parlance? Again very neatly maintained car. Could you please post some profile pictures in which the alloys are seen completely?
Cheers,
Hari.

@Lukeskywalker - thanks, it sure was one unique travel - remote villages and dirt roads of the Melghat area left an everlasting impression - other than the forests we visited.

Thats called Arizona Blue, and it is quite rare. Does look quite good, have seen a few over the years..

Another very rare colour for Safari is "Smoked Metal" - yet to see one with that colour.

ADC,

This is known as blending with natural, literally!

Good going!

And, is it just a pressure wash that you do after all this camouflaging?

Pressure wash [water and compressed air] at the nearby petrol pump. The wash people never fail to ask me where this time the Safari has been. It costs Rs 220/- for a shampoo wash and I add Rs 30 for all their extra effort.
