For all those who have followed Tigers of Kanha over the years, know that there is something unique and very interesting happening in the Mukki zone of Kanha National Park for last two seasons. 


There are FOUR big male Tigers, all adults, who have made Mukki zone their home. This has been absolutely unprecedented. Mukki was always known for Tigresses with cubs, and maybe an odd male transient Tiger showing up. But what seemed to be a fluke two years back has now settled well. The four big adult males have kind of accepted each other in a relatively small area. 


Last year did some some fights between the big four, namely, Umarpani Male, Bheema, Kingfisher and Link 7 male. There were fights, there were injuries, but they all have survived well. What surprised many was that towards the end of last season they had also sired some cubs, which hopefully should start showing up when the park reopens in October 2016. Everyone has fingers crossed and praying that hopefully nothing untoward has happened in the last 3 months when the park has been closed for monsoon. The safari permits are limited, and booked 120 days prior to your safari date. So wait now, go right ahead and book yourself into Mukki zone of Kanha to see some spectacular male Tiger sightings in the coming season too.
