The Tiger Safari 2013: Day 1

Day 1 – always exciting!  We started off this amazing safari with a good look at the rest of the players in the tiger reserve.  Loads of spotted deer, barking deer and indian gaur, or indian bison, filled the cameras’ viewfinders, as well as the brilliant and ever-present langur monkeys.  As for the tigers themselves, the best we managed was a fresh set of tracks for a female, heading to a nearby waterhole.  We were confident she was in the area but she didn’t show herself – this only brews excitement, as the hope of seeing a tiger increases!

Major sightings of the day:

  • Spotted deer
  • Barking deer
  • Langur monkeys
  • Indian gaur
  • A variety of birds, including peafowl
