Royal Bengal Tiger – Our Tryst With His Highness

Tiger 1

The Royal Bengal Tiger is an elusive creature. Some return to their hometown with just a glimpse of his/her Highness or no sighting at all!

In 2006, like most tourists we visited the Kanha National Park with great hopes of a tiger sighting. And we were in luck! My teenage daughter shot these videos from a moving jeep while his Highness followed with his characteristic regal gait. We are not professional wildlife photographers, so this chance sighting was a real treat and an awesome experience!

BEAUTY THAT IS OVERSHADOWED BY THE TIGER

We saw plenty of other wild animals like Indian Chital (spotted deer), monkeys, peacocks, Gaur (Indian Bison), etc. They have their own beauty and attraction, but tend to get overshadowed by the tiger. Here are some glimpses of our memorable trip:
