Tracking Down The Tiger in Kanha National Park
Our hotels in Kanha are best situated, with mixture of comfort and adventure. At the Crack of Dawn from our hotel, with the early morning sun filtering through the dense canopy of trees, you start out on the trail of the Tiger.
Your Friend, Philosopher and guide, the naturalist points out the signs along the way the pugmarks, the drag of a kill and signals you to be quiet and alert. And you are well on your way to a rendezvous with the Tiger. Over grassy glades, undulating hills, and steep rocky slopes of Kanha you travel in a Jeep or on the back of an Elephant. Catch a glimpse of the jewel of Kanha, the swamp deer (Barasingha), as it leisurely wallows amongst the water lilies in the Pond. Let your heart leap up at a bounding Chital or look a leopard in the eyes. But there's nothing to beat coming face to face with a Tiger.
Suddenly the Forest is still with the Sounds of Silence. Except for the herd of Barasingha, nothing moves. The Mahout's raised hand signals the start of the Drama. And then, lo! Behold him in all his orange and black splendour! The Tiger, King of Kanha, leaps out from the foliage and sets off in pursuit of a barasingha. The Chase is on. The herd has scattered. The Tiger is after his prey. And you are one of the privileged few to watch the live drama.
