In Search of the Bengal Tiger
A major highlight of the Taj and Tigers tour was a visit to Ranthambore National Park, one of the best places to see the Bengal tiger
It was an early start for our first drive into the park . . .
. . . and it was very cold (by Indian standards)
There was plenty of inquisitive wildlife . . .
. . . and then we spotted what we'd primarily come for!
My, what big teeth you have!
After a while the tiger wandered off, but settled again to sun himself on the rocks
Sambar deer — favourite tiger food!
It was a lot warmer when we set off for the afternoon drive
This time we followed a different route, with ruined temples . . .
. . . and Ranthambore Fort
We thought that we were going to miss out on seeing a tiger on the afternoon drive, until we finally spotted this tigress
