State Memorial for Tigress Machli of Ranthambore National Park, India

State Memorial for Tigress Machli of Ranthambore National Park, India
The legendary tigress Machli was given a state memorial service yesterday recognizing the deep respect Indian government officials have for their endangered Bengal tiger population. Machli was 19 years old, far beyond the average age of 12-15 years. She was perhaps the most photographed tiger of all time as she became accustomed to the presence of humans in the park often revealing herself to park vistors and conservationists studying her movement and behaviors.  The territory of Rathanbore National Park that she ruled included several lakes around the Ranthambore Fort where crocodiles dominated the shore.

Meet Your Guides: Ajai Kumar Yadav

Meet Your Guides: Ajai Kumar Yadav
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of a trip to India are the guides. How well a guide gets along with you, a Wildland traveler, can make or break a trip.
