We bagged the big cats on a recent trip to Kanha Tiger Reserve.
The thrill of watching the Royal Bengal Tigers is something for everyone's travel bucket list.
Sharing a few captures for your delight too.

A first-of-its-kind health-needs-assessment of forest guards working in tiger reserves in Central India, conducted by the Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT) with technical support from the Tulsi Foundation (UK), has thrown light on their exposure to medical emergencies, access to medical equipment, first aid training, and the availability of healthcare facilities. The study is the largest of its kind, and its findings are the fruit of three years of exhaustive field surveys that covered over 1,200 forest guards from 14 tiger reserves across five states.
According to the study, the median distance that forest guards have to travel to seek definitive care for major health emergencies was over 30 km. As many as 32 per cent of the forest guards reported that they had no access to local medical facilities whatsoever within commuting distance (five km. or less). These numbers have inspired WCT to take the next logical step in partnership with the forest department – a mapping study of health facilities around tiger reserves in Central India. The exercise will help understand where health infrastructure exists, where it doesn’t, and how existing infrastructure can be supported and strengthened.

I wish I can express in words how I am feeling since yesterday.
If you don't know what happened yesterday then go checkout my stories.
I saw a huge tiger in front of me and I wish I can tell how mesmerized I was when tiger was walking in front of us.
So, the entire story is I went to Kabini jungle specifically Nagarhole National Park and Tiger Reserve in Karnataka. It is a 5hrs drive from Bangalore, very peaceful and calm place. People generally go for atleast 3-4 days which means 6 to 8 safaris in total and they generally go there to spot a tiger, black panther and leopards. As I was running out of time so @dr.shashank.b.gowda who owned Jungle Sutra(his brand for wildlife safaris)invited me there for 2 days. That means only 3 safaris were planned for us, so chances of spotting a tiger was very little but I was confident enough from the day that we are going to spot a tiger.
Spotting a wild animal is totally dependent on your luck and your skills. @dr.shashank.b.gowda who has won several awards for his pictures, has this beautiful skill of figuring out the exact spot. He helped us to spot this beautiful elephant, leopard and this huge yet calm beast 'tiger'. The moment it was in front of me I was awe struck. My body, my mind, my heart, all were filled with love. And happiness was the only thing which I was reflecting. Trust me, seeing an animal in their habitat is the best thing one can experience
That's why one should stop visiting zoological parks and all the places where they give sedatives to tigers just to pose for you. That is totally stupid. If you really want to experience this thing then one should go to the national parks or tiger reserves, I am telling you it will change your heart and mind for sure. The kind of peace you get over there is something you can't find anywhere else.
This post is just a trailer and I am gonna write the entire experience soon with all the beautiful pictures of those beautiful animals so just stay tuned.
