Well to continue with the remainder of the Kanha leg, the early scare soon gave way to a very light drizzle and the park gates eventually opened around 8:30 am I think. It was a challenge to wrap up the cameras in polybags to prevent them from getting wet and try and take photographs or shoot video footage at the same time. Thankfully the drizzle stopped soon and we had bright sunshine and absolutely brilliant colours all around. No tiger spotting for the day despite long waits in a couple of spots tracking animal calls. Later we did here reports that groups of tourists have had significant tiger sightings elsewhere.

By day three afternoon, we were almost desperate and our driver decided to beat the crowd by ensuring we get in first and thank god for that considering what unfolded later. The sheer excitement and thrill of seeing the tiger up, close and personal made the trip really memorable. Razor has already posted the relevant photo's. I'll sign off on the Kanha leg by posting some more photographs. Given time, we shall try and complete the Bedaghat and Khajuraho legs later, though those would hardly be as exciting as what has been written thus far.

Elephants used for getting close to the big cats observed off the roads.

The road in/out of Kanha ... it's just over 3 months since our visit, but we have been discussing when we can go back next ...

Hey Razor & Icy:

Great going and fantastic shots of the wildlife and landscape. You guys were very lucky to sight a tiger right on the trail.

I had visited Kanha last weekend and could sight 3 tigers on Sunday, 28th March. But all of them were some distance away and I was hampered by the lack of long lens. But the most memorable action that I saw a tigress hunting a spotted deer fawn. We saw her right from the time, the tigress started to stalk the prey to the climax when she was carrying the kill away to feed her cubs.

The other sightings were of a female & male sleeping away to glory in the afternoon heat. Well, seperately!!

And yes, you are right Kanha really evokes a desire to go back..I have been there 2 times already in the past year and planning to go back in May just before the rains.

Wonderfull TL. I really liked the picture of the tiger sleeping on the trail . The strip pattern on its back is so vibrant and beautiful, Usually we cannot take our eyes of the tigers face and its cold eyes leaving very little scope to notice anything else.
