On 5th October 2019, tourist spotted Dotty (tigress) in the jungle:

I always do at least 2 Safaris, One at Morning & One at Evening. Morning safari has a higher chance of Tiger sighting compared to Evening. But If you want to sight Tigress with her cubs then go for the evening Safari & try to locate them near water holes. According to my experience, I would suggest tourists to visit Magadhi Gate (Zone 2) then TALA(Zone 1) then Khatauli(Zone 3). Although the Tala zone is Premium Zone, there are more chances to see the tiger in the Magadhi zone.

On 8th Oct, One of the tourist Sourabh spotted Kajri (tigress) at Tala Zone: 

After wandering for some time & making several pit stops in the park we were returning to the main gate through a different route on the outer periphery of the Tala zone. One of the gypsy was coming from the other side signaled us to follow them as they saw one tigress coming down the hill. After waiting for 5-10 minutes we were able to see the stripes into the bushes and by that time the road was also jam-packed to see the tigress. We moved our gypsy forward and back multiple times to get the right spot if in case this tigress chose to cross the road and finally the tigress made the bold move amidst the huge human presence.
