  7. This is the story of Pench national park... Monsoon is making its way into central india and storm have become a regular feature in the afternoon. This afternoon was no different with heavy cloud cores and a brief spell of rain. Things didnot look very promising. At the entrance we got the tip off that the famous Baghin nala tigress were seen on our route this morning. We rushed to the area. She along with her three cubs had already moved off. Not loosing hope , we moved ahead. Following her pugmark we started tracking. 1 km from there and bang! She was sitting next to the road with the cubs, not even 5 minutes after finding came in the next surprise on the same place. 2 wild dogs rushed towards spotted deer in front of our jeep. They chased the spotted deer on same direction where tigress was also sitting with her cubs. Disturbed by the commotion she ran towards wild dogs to rid off them from there to save her cubs. And after that went inside the bushes and disappeared. We were waiting for some next action and I was expecting that tigress with cubs will come out on the road from the bushes. But the thing which happened there was beyond my expectation. And the very next moment we heard the loud growl of tigress. Through only voice I could imagine her aggression. This was so close to us that we could feel the tremble. This was certainly one such natural history moment which our guests will never forget. It was like m watching some live documentary. As I m thinking and writing this, the incident has still brought shivers to my body. Later on we did get an update from other vehicle that the wild dogs killed the deer they were chasing.
  8. Hello, I m new in this forum. I my pleasure to meet all wildlife lover and photographer in this forum. I would also like to share my wildlife experience with you all. I hope you will enjoy my pictures which I had taken on my 31 days overland trip in inida.

It was really long journey and I had enjoyed lotss. In central India I could see Tigers and other wildlife like deer,jackal,wilddog,wildboar,birds. But in northern part of India like in Jim corbett national park and Rajaji national park we had trageted Asiatic elephant, because they found in that region only. It was a time when they had spreaded all over India but because of poaching and ivory problem they had migrated to northen part of india and some had gone till nepal aswell. Small poulation of Asiatic elephants live in souther part of india aswell Which also migrate according to the food supply and weather condition. Corbett and rajaji is very good for birding aswell.

For the search of Indian leopard we will go Bera. You must have heard the name of kanha, bandhavgarh or pench, bharatpur, sariska or ranthambore but not bera. Thats why I will let you know about it. It is small village and home of nothing less that 40 leopards. Bera, an adventurer’s retreat is situated 180 km from Jodhpur and 150 km from Udaipur by road. The perfect base to explore the territory of the regal leopard, where sighting the wild beast is very common. While it is pleasant in the day, the mornings and nights are much cooler. The best time to visit the resort is from October to March. India has lots of very small patches which is still virgin and unknown among people and photographers. Capture lion and tiger in the camera is easy but taking one good snap of leopard is very hard, and in this case it doesn't matter that you are in africa or India. And because of their shy nature it is very difficult to take ! good picture of them. Thats why we are going Bera which is called leopard country. Where we give guarantee to show you leopard with their varies behaviors After Bera we will head to Gujarat " the land of Asiatic lion" . we will explore Gir national park for the search of Lions.
