For anyone with an interest in India but especially wildlife and photographic enthusiasts eager to see the tiger in its natural environment, plus a game of cricket!
We will maximise our time in Bandhavgarh National Park, doing game drives both morning and evening when the chances of seeing tigers are high. This trip also hopes to make a difference to the future of the tigers, and between game drives we will visit the project in Bandhavgarh where Exodus in conjunction with Friends of Conservation have already raised considerable funds.
For a number of years Exodus and Friends of Conservation have been sponsoring the school in Tala, adjacent to Bandhavgarh, and there will be a cricket game during the early afternoon of one day while we are there, to raise funds for the school.
What makes this trip responsible?
Bandhavgarh , partly due to its inaccessibility and its reliable watercourses, is home to one of the last few viable concentrations of tigers on Earth. However it is not immune to the twin threats of poaching and encroachment by the many villages that surround the park. Exodus believes by providing assistance to both the park directly and the surrounding villages, the local population see real practical benefits that simply would not be there without the close presence of the tigers and the visitors who come to see these most magnificent of all big cats.
