Indian Wildlife Experience – Unique & Different
Indian Wildlife experience is very different than what you get to see in other parts of the world (say Africa for that matter). In Africa, in one national park and in one outing you can get to see say lions, rhinos, elephants, hippos, gazelles, monkeys etc – practically everything. This is not the case in India. It is more difficult to track, find and photograph India’s wildlife. The trick is patience, more knowledge and to some extent skill.
In India, if you want to see Rhinos (the famous one-horned Indian Rhinos) you go to Assam and other North-East parts of India. If you want to see the Asiatic Lions you need to travel to Gujarat (which is in the North Western part of India). If you want to see large herds of Indian Elephants, south India is the best bet and to some extent even the leopards. If you want to see Tigers, even though they are present across several parks across length and breadth of India (there are 48 Tiger Reserves across India), good chance of seeing them is to go to Central India (mainly Madhya Pradesh). If this is the scene w.r.t distribution of animals, sighting is not guaranteed and takes multiple trips (remember its a dense jungle out there unlike the African savanna) and some luck.
With all such challenges, what draws (initially) most international wildlife enthusiasts to India & what makes Indian Wildlife tick is the endangered Bengal tiger (we have the highest number of in the Tigers in the world (2226 out of 3500 – around 64% of all tigers that are present in the wild around globe are present in India). What brings them back is the desire to see tigers again, and more of India’s wildlife and wild places. Of course once the Tiger mania is done with, you get to see many endangered species or those species which are specific to India and you never get to see anywhere such as the asiatic lions, indian elephants, one-horned Rhinos and many many species of birds which you never get to see in the wild the say you see in India.
