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. Seeing one of these big cats is a once in a lifetime experience and there is no better place than on a trip to India to check that item off the bucket list. While it is easy to get lost in the eye of the tiger, there are many other factors to take into account when choosing a park including but not limited to quality of lodges, naturalists as well as other flora and fauna. This blog is going to focus specifically on the national parks of Madhya Pradesh (MP), considered the epicenter for tiger sightings in India. MP is also great because they offer full day permits if you’re really interested in seeing tigers. You get...

A Day in the Life of a Jungle Safari in India

tiger-rocks7
Days spent on jungle safaris in India are different than any other you’ll experience on your adventure. With a minimum of 2 nights at a lodge and 3 nights highly recommended you’ll fall into a routine. You wake up with the sun and fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and a full belly. You'll spend hours riding around in a jeep searching for animals and hours relaxing in your room or by the pool. I’ll try to outline to the best I can what a typical day looks like in the jungles of India. Note: These were the times for when I was visiting in October. The times change with the season as the park gate opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. In the heart of winter, you’ll find later start times and earlier exit times. 5:00 – Wakeup knock on your door. 5:15 – Tea, coffee, and snacks....

Tiger - A Love Story

      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! Anne Kutay...
