Having enjoyed this same trip in 2008, I had no hesitation in booking again for 2009. What can I say it exceeded all my expectations, both in tiger sightings and in the companionship of a great bunch of fellow travellers.
- What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
We were lucky enough to have so many great tiger sightings, but tracking the dominant male, B2, throught the mist on elephant back has to be a highlight. My hands were shaking so hard with excitement that the photos were rubbish, but I will have those memories forever - photographs or not.
- What did you think of your group leader?
Our local leader, Balvinder Singh, was terrific. Nothing is too much trouble, from providing bananas on the long train journey to bean bags for camera support in the jeeps, everything is done with a smile.
What can I say about Paul, boundless enthusiasm and passion for the wildlife win out everytime. He wants you to have a photograph you can be proud of and will go to great lenghts to help you achieve it.
- Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Be prepared for early morning, very early, wake up calls!
You will take more photos than you expect, so bring plenty of memory cards or a means of downloading daily.
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
The staff at Nature Heritage Resort are great, as are the driver/guides in the National Park. Without the drivers' expertise we would see nothing, they seem to have an uncanny ability to know where the tigers are and also once spotted what they will do next.
If you love wildlife and photography, don't hesitate book for next year!
