Undoubtfully, one hair-raising experience.

Though one has to scout hard to have glimpse of a tiger in wild sanctuaries in India.

These are obviously taken in a wild life sanctuary. These caravans are takenin the forest and we have one like that called the Sanjay Gandhi National park. Is this Kenya?

Sure, who wouldn't want a lion chewing his car tyres in the middle of a safari.

Checkout those people lowering their car window glass to click a clean photo. In fact even these photos are not shot through the glass. Actually the glass in no protection against these real beast, they can rip through the car glass with a single stroke of their paws.

Since we're very much in Africa and safari, it may worth giving a look at these shots. At Kruger National Park. Absolutely abnormal situation though.

I had one experience in 1997, February when we were going to our home town in Bihar from Nagpur. We had taken following route to our hometown
Nagpur - Raipur - Bilaspur - Ambikapur - Pathalgaon - Jashpur - Gumla - Ranchi.

We were in brand new (10 days old) blue color Tata Sumo Dx. When we crossed the border of (then) MP now Chattisgarh (After jashpur) and entered into then Bihar now Jharkhand at around 10 PM, down hose pipe from radiater to engine came out (due to extreme bad roads and in between potholed) and suddenly temprature of SUMO was showing above 100 degrees. We stopped the vehicle in mid of the Jungle (It was small ghat section). It was complete dark out side. When I throw light of torch to either side we can see some boards of forest department as "Tiger Point".

We had to fit the hose and come out of SUMO as engine was over heated, we had to wait for some time to cool off so that we can fit the hose and put reserved water into radiator, so that atleast we can reach some nearby safe place.

We were waiting and suddenly we see some movement in one side of road. We thought since tiger point is written and now tiger came. We immediately came inside of vehicle. But when the movement reached nearer we saw some Flock of Wolf was gathering near vehicle. We started honking but they were not moving. After some 30 minutes they started to move to other side. Then we came down and fitted the hose in the dark and put some water to reach nearby dhaba at around 12:30 AM.

When we reached nearby dhaba, they told us this road was not good for night driving. Sometimes even Elephant also come across the road apart from tiger, wolf, fox etc.

It was one of the hair raising experience of my life in the middle of night.

A fully grown african lion is around 8-10 feet long. And also very tall.
The power of their jaws is amazing. The power of their is as good as Hyena. They can kill a huge buffalo and then handle the dead body of that animal as if it was just a trash can.

Hair raising experience. The must have bullet proof, super strong glass to invade in these safaris.

Though definitely nothing to match the pictures here, Bannerghatta National Park has a Lion Safari.
