Let’s go Tiger Spotting this February in Kabini Nagarhole and here is why

Tiger Sighting @ Kabini 2015

WildTrails analyzed the complete one year sighting details of Tiger spotting at the famous Kabini Nagarhole in Karnataka and what the data tells us is pretty insightful :

(we are the first and the only company to do so)

Total Sightings for the year 2015 is 268 days

If you break that up by weekdays:

Monday 39
Tuesday 35
Wednesday 33
Thursday 40
Friday 38
Saturday 41
Sunday 42

Seems Tiger loves the weekend just like us and doesn’t want to disappoint the weekend travelers!!

If you breakup by the month:

January 19
February 37
March 31
April 26
May 26
June 11
July 19
August 10
September 18
October 29
November 18
December 24

Surprisingly February month (37) has the highest when we were all expecting the summer months of April and May might have the highest sightings (as they come out often in search of water) or the months of October or November or December which is considered the ideal months to visit the forest.

Also we calculated the difference of days between tiger sightings and what we found is that:

Average # of days stay to spot a tiger was 1.7 days

You can tune your # of days of stay to increase the probability of spotting a tiger:

# of Days Stay @ Kabini Probability of Spotting a Tiger (based on 2015 data)
2 days 84%
3 days 89%
4 days 94%
5 days 97%
6 days 98%
7 days 98%

Seems interesting and if we go by any of this data, seems staying over the long weekend (say Thu/Fri/Sat/Sun) in the month of February seems the best possible shot at sighting the Tiger!!!!
