How to Choose the Right Tiger Park in India

DSC_0324
India is home to 70% of the world’s remaining tigers. These majestic cats have been making a fantastic comeback due to conservation efforts after being on the verge of endangered just 20 years ago.

Tensions Running High in the Jungles of India

Tension is running high in the jungles of India this week. Challengers to both tigers and tigresses in various tiger reserves have been adding conflict and intrigue to daily squabbles, and injuries are the inevitable result. The Princess of the lakes, Satra, is limping badly in Ranthambore. Blue Eyes is hurt and rumor has it that Vijaya has a swollen leg in Bandhavgarh National Park. All this activity points to the testosterone-fueled blood that flows through wild tigers' veins as individuals mature and the young begin to dominate over the elders. An ambush of tigers.
