I have copies of the booklet tiger trails had, if you want them, but the girls weren't named yet so are not in the booklet.
If an experience is amazing enough to be "once in a lifetime," I want to do it every year.

I saw a female in the same area on my afternoon drive.  More photos to come in due course.

These photos were taken in Ranthambore Zone 4 this morning.  The tiger is T19 and T28's son.  He's around 2.5 years old.  We were with him for around 25-30 mins so it was a VERY good sighting :)

As an aside can anyone recommend anything to do with my final 8 days in India?  I was considering Bandavargh but from what I understand tigers are the only attraction?  Ranthambore has been very good to me with tiger sightings so I'd like to see some other species aside from them and the usual deer and monkeys.  Tadoba is probably out as booking Government accommodation has proven to be a major pain in the arse (the way in which Indians do business will never cease to amaze me).  I've emailed a couple of private hotels though so you never know...  Gir and the parks further south are going to be too time consuming to visit.

 

I've already visited the Sunderbans, Kanha, Kazaringa and Keoladeo (TR to come before GW asks :) ).

What else do you want to see? You could go to Chambal for gharials, jackal, gangetic dolphin, and palm civet. I would have suggested Gujarat, but you say that's out, but flights are quite reasonable in India. Little Rann and Velavadar would both be good sites for different mammals.

what about the desert area of Rajasthan? Or Bera (for leopard). There is also the area around Pangot and Nainital which is great for birding but some distance away by overnight train (but we did this journey and Corbett from mathura).
If an experience is amazing enough to be "once in a lifetime," I want to do it every year.

What about Corbett Park? It´s quite different from Ranthambore, and offers wild elephants, gharials and good birding.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.  I'm think that I'll probably try and go to Chambal and Soor Sarovar Bird Sanctuary.  I was considering Little Rann for wolves and foxes but I think I'll save that for next time.

This was taken in Bardia this morning so it should probably go in the rest of the world section :)

 

IMG_0914_zps907dba17.jpg

 

Not the best sighting due to the crappy weather and the fact that he was a fair distance away.  Still fun though, particularly as it was on a walking safari.  Very different experience compared to the 5+ vehicle scrum you get in India

Yes, Vishal, welcome to ST and that is a lovely photo. Reminds me of an equally lovely hyena photo you will see in a thread called Kwando files by another member @madaboutcheetah.

Look forward to all your tiger updates.

Hi Friends ,

 

Thanks for your response to the post, since we were on this tiger i thought of sharing one more image of this one

 

This was taken around 3 minutes earlier to the post before , only that the angle of light direction was different , photography is always the play of light .

This one is a dominant Male in Tadoba, called as Waghdoh Male ( more related to the area he is found) 

 

One of the biggest males in India currently

@vishaljadhav great shot mate. What lens and camera set up were you using for this image? Is Tadoba your favourite park?
