Andrew was one of the guests on this year’s Tigers of Tadoba photography holiday. We arranged the tour for Derek & Andrew after we learnt that two of the tigresses in Tadoba had recently given birth, which meant there was the possibility to photograph tiger cubs.
We cannot guarantee tiger sightings, they are, after all, wild animals. But we maximised our chances by keeping in touch with our contacts on the ground. This meant we were able to make informed decisions when it came to booking the tickets.
Andy & Derek had the privilege of spending over an hour with a mother in four cubs in the buffer zone. This was only possible because we knew that the tigress had made her home outside of the core area. Just look at those faces!
By the end of the week, Andy had been lucky enough to have had sightings of 4 tigresses with their cubs & the elusive dominant male.
Whilst the Bengal Tiger is the target species of our Tigers of Tadoba photography holiday, it is worth noting that the park is also home to iconic mammals such as dhole, sloth bear & leopard, to name but a few, as well as 195 species of birds!
