Is it a good idea to visit a Tiger Reserve during Monsoons?
The popular belief goes that you rarely sight a tiger during monsoons, guides and naturalists at the parks agree to disagree. Contrray to the popular belief, they believe that tigers walk more on the roads (due to long grass) during rainy season and also since the scent goes away faster, they wander around scent marking more often during rainy season. Only issue is that heavy rains will make sure that the safari might be cancelled but if it happens, tiger sightings wont be an issue.
If you are behind elephants sightings, this is the best time as they love to get out and get drenched during rains!!
