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:
Seems Tiger loves the weekend just like us and doesn’t want to disappoint the weekend travelers!!
If you breakup by the month:
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)|
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!!!!
