The elephant image is to give you an idea of how high are the Grass on both sides.
By now I have done over 20 safaris n viewed 18tigers from close or far.
Have even seen one from 5 feet Distance.
There was a grassland where a tiger had been seen n going by his past sightings guide was sure he would cross the road n there was 70 of us approx. standing on the watchtower waiting cameras on the ready.
Elephant grass on both sides of the path for a km
and as we stood here for an hour or so, (Ok occasionally I did doze off) and those who did not were having a gaggle, In Blue sweatshirt is Nitin Chittal.
Suddenly there was a buzz n we ran back to the opposite side of the watchtower.
The tiger was crossing by the WATER body
He had walked 600mtrs unto us n no one had heard or seen him, and he just glided by effortlessly n not a blade was disturbed as he walked by AMAZING to see his grace n smoothness of movement as he gave us a look n then once more melted into the elephant grass again. Great sighting indeed.
Only Nitin, was able to capture the Tiger looking at us
I felt I had just watched a huge stuffed toy walk by so dreamlike was the tigers movement
It disappeared into the elephant grass only to re-appear 20 min later for those of us who lingered on n caught a 2nd sighting of the tiger.
finally by central zone by 1700 hrs. after lingering around for another 20 minutes, yes we saw a few birds
Another 15 minutes would have been nice to watch the Sunset from the Forest, Guessing the power that be had a reason for there decision to shoo us away by 1700 hrs.
Tommorow we will go to Buro Pahar, a range/ a Zone that not many people know about , we woudl be looking for more birds principally and it is supposedly very preety.
