janzin posted a topic in IndiaSo we've been hashing out an itinerary for our 2nd trip to India and I'd appreciate any comments. (Our first trip last year was to Tadoba, Pench, Kanha, and Kaziranga.) We still have lots of time to make adjustments but in my eyes this is looking good. I can't really add any more days, we are pretty much at our limit of time once you add in the travel days from the US! The aim is 1) to return for more tigers; we really only had decent sightings of tiger in one park on our last trip (Tadoba) even though we visited three different tiger parks. So tigers and tiger photography is a priority. For that reason we have five nights in Ranthambhore utilizing their new permit system which allows for full day drives on three full days. 2) birding; we are pretty serious birders and bird photographers and so wanted to hit another, different area of India where we could pick up new species. 3) To see Asiatic Lion and hopefully some of the other species which would be life mammals such as Striped Hyena, Desert Fox, Indian Wolf, and Caracal (which has eluded us in Africa!) Its a lot of long drives, but we want to go to Bera for leopard as well as the magnificent looking landscape. The stop at Shapura is just to break up the long drive, but it looks like a lovely place to stay and may have time for some birding on the grounds. I hadn't realized everything in Gujarat was so far apart!

Some of the top sightings of the 22 Days Big Cats of India Feb trip. The success of the trip was incredible with 9 tigers, 8 leopards and 4 lions all together. Other than the big cats we saw tons of other wildlife as well, like jungle cats, deer, wild boar, gaur, antelope etc. The overwhelming success of the trip is very encouraging and we are already looking forward to the next departure: 5th Dec, 2017 http://overlandingindia.com/camping_browse_tours.php?pid=13&tour=22%20Days%20Big%20cats%20of%20India Asiatic lion - Gir national park Cob of mahaveer tigress - Kanha national park Umarpani male - Kanha national park One of the cubs of mahaveer female Leopard sitting on tree top Leopard - Bera More pictures will be posted soon.........
