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. I started my travelling from jabalpur and then went to pench national park , kanha national park, bandhavgarh national park, panna national park, khajuraho, ranthamnore national park, Keoladeo bird sanctuary, corbett national park, rishikesh , rajaji national park and ended up in dehradun. 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.

 

Below I have attached my pictures.

Hello TonuQ...

Many thanks to liked my pictures.

Rajaji national park is in Uttarakhand state of India which is very close to Holy place - Rishikesh.

This national park is very famous for its Asiatic elephant sighting and leopards. The density of tiger is not lots but it has Tiger.

The varieties of mammals, bird life is really very good.

I m going again in october with my overland group.

I will surely post more pictures of my previous overland trip.

Thank you @@Deeptiwildlifetraveler

 

If it was in Africa, I would say the track is a leopard?

Hello,
