I'm looking forward to seeing atleast some of you.

Highwaylover,

Tadoba.

As the water holes there are drier than a bone, the water pans being filled by the park officials will get you sightings 100% just by the roadside.

Chances more than Pench as the terrain here is plain and grass, since the grass has dried out you have plain, plains.

If you are going to Pench, go to MP Pench, you will have more sightings than Maharashtra Pench.

You are halting at Nagpur for the photo exib., Dr. Ghosh will be most informative and helpful.

And.....the question is not silly.

Regards,

There are good sightings going on in both the parks. I'm sorry i have not been able to post frequent updates here as i am busy with my event.

Please be updated about whats happening at my end by checking this Login | Facebook out .

Highwayover, If you are a beginner , I would recommend you to go to pench , as pench will help you appreciate indian jungles in all her glory better than tadoba at this moment.
Fazal bhai we dont want highwaylover to become tiger centric and so i recommend that we should suggest him to go to pench instead of tadoba where there will be a heady mix of other animals also apart from the tiger ;-)

regards,
Dr. A Ghosh

Thanks Dr.Ghosh for your suggestion. I would like to stick to Tadoba for this trip as two guys already dropped out and also the time i have got compressed. i will probably join the hyderabad group for a pench trip next weekend.

Now the biggest problem i am facing is accomodation and vehicle. can i take my own car with a guide in it? (i have a getz).

I saw a bit on NDTV news about the tiger - man conflict in Tadoba. Uncooperative mining companies are a problem it seems.
NDTV's Save Our Tigers Campaign: Latest News

Poor governance can be as dangerous as a poacher.

Bornin70s,
Poor governance is a thousand times more fatal than poaching.
Our goverment is doing precious little to save tigers, their primary aim should be first saving the forest from free land gifts to encroachers under the Tribal Rights Act, deforestation, timber cutting and smuggling, cattle grazing, human settlements, mining, dams, construction etc.

The above list can go on, but most hard hitting and a sure destruction of forests in India is can be attributed to the recently introduced Tribal Rights Act, the vote bank is most precious for any government that is in the center than the forest or the tiger. PERIOD.

Dr, Ghosh,
That's a good advice to highwaylover, there is more diversity visible in Pench.
Keep up the good work and wish you success for your event.
