My life-long dream of seeing tigers in the wild took me to on a journey to the wilds of Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks in the exotic land of India. Kanha National Park is well known as the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s amazing story Jungle Book and offers enchanting scenic beauty and beautiful sunsets. Although I did not have the good fortune to see tigers at Kanha (many in our group did) I did see and abundance of other wildlife including sloth bear, sambar, spotted deer and plenty of playful monkeys. My dream of seeing a tiger came true in Bandavgarh and it was spectacular! I was completely over come with a sense of joy and wonder – a breathtaking, spine tingling experience. Once I started believing what I was seeing, a feeling of calm washed over me. I became very still and quietly enjoyed this magnificent cat.
Dreams do come true!
