Bengal Tigers of Tadoba from Andrew

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.

A visit to the Tigers of Tadoba … & their cubs

David learnt that there were two female tigers who had recently given birth to cubs in Tadoba National Park. This was probably around late November 2017 & two other females had also given birth a little earlier. It seemed that a visit to see the Tigers of Tadoba was on!

David & I, plus my friend Andy, could not miss this great opportunity of hopefully viewing 3 to 4-month-old tiger cubs. So, we caught a plane to Nagpur & then travelled to Tadoba for some excellent tiger viewing & photography.
David is always networking which helps significantly in the meticulous planning NaturesLens always carry out when preparing wildlife photographic trips & workshops. This was no exception.

If you want to get the best possible viewing in the core tiger zones, you usually have to book at least three months in advance.  David learnt that two of the Tigers had made their home outside of the core zones of the reserve. We therefore decided to take a gamble & arrange some of our drives in the lesser used reserve areas. We hoped this would increase our chances of seeing as many different cubs as possible. Of course, this could have gone wrong if the Tigers had returned to the main areas but we felt confident they would not.
Our gamble paid off! In reality, this was probably not an enormous gamble due to the planning by David. Most tourists tend to stick to the traditional core areas as they believe they offer the best sightings. I believe we were the only westerners in the areas where these two females were to be found, which made our viewings & images even more special.

Client images from our back to back Indian trips

With our clients, we had a great time on a NaturesLens Photography Holiday at two fantastic locations in India during late March; the first week was spent at Tadoba Tiger Reserve, where the guests experienced encounters with sloth bears, tigers, a leopard (in Jayne’s case) & many birds. The second week was spent in Nagarhole – Kabini, where our target species were tiger, elephant & the leopards of the region.

We will share a second series of photos from Jayne later in the week, but first up, we have a selection contributed by Ian.
