Aside from the keystone species, the Bengal tiger, Tadoba Tiger Reserve is home to other mammals, including: Indian leopards, sloth bears, gaur, nilgai, dhole, striped hyena, small Indian civet, jungle cats, sambar, spotted deer, barking deer, chital, chausingha and honey badger. Tadoba lake sustains the marsh crocodile, which were once common all over Maharashtra.

Reptiles here include the endangered Indian python and the common Indian monitor. Terrapins, Indian star tortoise, Indian cobra and Russel's viper also live in Tadoba.

In our search for the big cats our guide took us to a couple of core areas deeper where rarely people go. This area is real thick bamboo woods, water holes and swamps, perfect tiger ambush territory. People stay a week to see A cat..latest census is up to 55 tigers in this sanctuary
This female tiger decided to pop out 30 yards in front of the truck. Guide says thats Maaya..focussed on axis deer in front..axis are going crazy with alert calls..About to get real good or real bad soon!
This is on the main road that even scooters and motor bikes using to commute.

She finally went in and settled just inside the tall grass and bamboo thicket. That was an amazing 5min experience that i can never forget. Pulled up to his water hole and found 2 more tigers "sonam" and "tara". They are about a 125yards away and no way to get closer.

Thats awesome . . . . many moons ago I did a lot of call center work in India and went numerous times. One of my vendors took us to Ranthambore for the weekend . . . . it was amazaing.

I was left with the impression that there is NO hunting allowed anywhere.

I think at 125 yards with no real protective cover on the vehicle or weapons you're more than close enough for my taste.

Great photos and I'm sure an even better time.

Is this is the same Chandrapur referenced in this article about a man-eating tiger which was recently killed after eating 7 people.

Sorry. Just answered my own question. There is an Indochina Tiger in Vietnam.

Dad remembers a buddy in Saigon that ran Safari hunts out of Saigon back when he was in MAAG Vietnam in the 50's. Tigers were part of the hunt menu.

I would be a little nervous but thrilled none the less. Good luck!

Sorry..on my way back to US now..Just to clarify ..No hunting allowed in India....only the politicians and police are allowed to keep weapons. We saw this leopard taking a bite off the carcass. Sorry for the bad pic..it happened too quick. Seen a total of 4 tigers and 2 leopards...pretty amazing trip!

Had to come back to this older thread. I remembered it, Just finished several books from Jim Corbett and wanted to see the country for how he described it in his books. The days of hunting this beautiful country will be missed. Maybe one day it'll return. Awesome photos!

Jim corbetts man eaters of kumaon is a good read. It was unbelievable trip and nail biting siting in an open jeep 30 yards from a tiger! There is another thread I did that has more pics. Stay tuned for a 2017 year end trip. Probably switch it up a little and go to lion safari.
