Increase your Chances of Spotting the Tiger in the Wild!!
As wildlife enthusiasts (WE) visiting these tiger reserves frequently for the last decade, what we have figured out is that if we spot a tiger in a safari, and then if we do continuous safaris for the next 3 to 5 days, chances are higher (80%) to spot them again. Several reasons and one of them we found is that when Tiger has hunted a big one (say a huge Sambar Deer or say a Gaur), it tends to pull that near a water source and stays there for a week or so until the kill is devoured completely (of course it covers it when it is not devouring).
Let us share you a secret of increasing the chances of spotting the tiger. If you are a regular into these jungles, you know these people very well and as soon as a tiger is spotted (with a huge kill, most likely) you get a call from these people saying we spotted a tiger with a kill and a sure chance it will be around for next one week, pack your bags and run to the forest 🙂 We do that and we get those amazing sightings and snaps. Anyways now that the secret is out, if you are interested to get notified when we get notified, drop us an email (to GetNotified@WildTrails.In) with your email address (and Phone number if you like to get a Text/SMS) and we will notify you.
Currently we get the info from Bannergatta National Park (BNP), Kabini & Nagarhole National Park (NNP) and Biligiri Ranga Swamy Temple Wildlife Sanctuary (BRT) which are drivable distance from the city of Bangalore (around 220 to 250 kms) and you can cover in 4 to 5 hours.
(BTW I have created a Facebook group for the same – Get Notified When Tiger is Spotted; You can join there as well)
