What a breathtaking image. Like @Treepol, I am very interested in hearing more about this Park, any Park that offers the chance of both Tiger and Elephant grabs the attention.

@elefromoz, there are quite a few parks in India where you can get an Elephant and Tiger together in the park. But getting them in the same frame might not be always possible. I think i was simply lucky. Some parks which have Tiger and Elephant are Corbett, Dudhwa, Nagarhole, Kaziranga, Bandipur, and few more. But this park also has another unique species, i.e. the Rhinos. While Rhinos are almost guaranteed to see here as you get to go on an Elephant back in the tall grass to see them, but you do see them. Elephants are too tough, if you are willing to give yourself some time in the park. Tiger is tough to get here, but not impossible. Infact just close to Dudhwa is Kishanpur, just 30 minutes drive, and this park is really good with Tigers. I would say this park is almost a breeding centre for Tigers. The Tiger density in this park is going to surprise many Wildlife lovers. Good thing about this sanctuary is that it is connected to PIlibhit Tiger reserve, Mailani range, and also the forests of South Khiri. So lot of Tigers are passing through Kishanpur lately. One can also call it the Tiger nursery. I have done some coverage on this park on my site. You may see it here: www.naturesafariindia.com/blog

@wilddog glad you liked the post and images. Dudhwa is an amazing park, worth a visit on your next visit to India sometime.

Great photos and interesting detail.
Like Janzin I think the 2nd photo well worthy of framing. You would look hard and far to find a natural picture that shows India's iconic wildlife so well. It has a quality that deserves sharing.

Thanks for doing so.

Sir, these are amazing photos and your blog is packed with very valuable insight into the many tiger reserves of India.

I was fortunate enough to visit Kanha Chitvan lodge and stay at the resort for a few days. We were blessed to sight the Mahamen female there and left wanting to return to Kanha again this year.

Looking at your images, Dudwha also looks like an fantastic, unspoiled reserve. Would love to chat with you about possibility of trips to that and other forest reserves.
