Eye to eye with Shir Khan, the king of the jungle – which wildlife lover has not dreamed of this yet? In India, Nepal and Bhutan this dream can come true! The Royal Bengal Tiger is an endangered species, with only about 2,500 individuals left. The largest population – around 1,700 individuals – can be found in India, but Nepal’s National Parks and Bhutan’s untouched mountains are home to a smaller number of tigers as well.
Tiger safaris can be undertaken in different National Parks in India:
Bandhavgarh offers excellent chances of sighting tigers, as it has a very high population density of the species. October until June is the best time to go there.
Kanha is the place that brought inspiration to Rudyard Kipling, when he wrote his Jungle Books. Tiger sightings in this national park are extremely frequent, and at the same time you can follow the footsteps of everyone’s childhood heros Mowgli and Baloo, the sloth bear.
Ranthambore is a little lush paradise in the deserts of Rajasthan and a great place to view tigers. The dry forest with little undergrowth or tall grasses provides fantastic vision.
Corbett has a population of tigers, but sightings are rare. The park is better known for a range of other species, the best time to visit is February to May.
