Tiger in Bandhavgarh

Wildlife Holidays in India

 

Close up! Tiger in Bandhavgarh, India

The population of tigers, the largest of the big cat species, is sadly in a precarious state. Land encroachment and the obscenity of poaching for the ludicrous ancient medicine demand have left an indelible mark on the future of this magnificent beast. However, due to the herculean efforts of conservationists, charities and tourism it is still possible to see tigers in the wild.

Seeing a tiger in the wild is by no means guaranteed, but when – if – you do see that flash of fiery orange in the undergrowth it’s a truly wondrous moment. Nothing compares to the visceral thrill of seeing a real tiger up close. The first encounter, that magical moment when you lock eyes with one of these precious big cats, stays with you for life. Due to a huge effort by conservationalists, some of whom we’ve been involved with for many years, there are even reports that tiger populations have increased for the first time in over 100 years.

The best places to watch tigers are Bandhavgarh, Kanha and Ranthambore. Tiger safaris are done by vehicle and although not offering the profusion of game you may find in Africa, there is plenty of other wildlife to enjoy as well as a good chance of a sighting of this elusive and endangered predator.
