Tiger! Tiger! A New Season at Sher Bagh, Ranthambhore

As the temperatures slowly start to drop, so approaches the opening of the new Tiger Season in India. We at SUJAN’s Sher Bagh are delighted to announce that we will be opening our doors for the 15th year. During the closed period we have done some refurbishment’s and changes which we know you will love. For now, however, let us focus on the tigers. It is estimated that this season there are over 50 tigers in Ranthambhore National Park, and statistically speaking Ranthambhore must be one of the best parks in the world to see a wild Tiger. Our guides are experienced, professional and enthusiastic – we can promise that they will go all out to give you the best possible chance to see the biggest cat on earth. If that were not enough to convince you then maybe the fact that this season there are currently at least 8 cubs in Ranthambhore. Whilst we know that nothing in nature can be planned, this season, the chances of seeing a tiger cub are as good as ever! Read More Tiger! Tiger! A New Season at Sher Bagh, Ranthambhore »

On Safari at Londolozi – Part 1

Leopards are widely regarded as the most elusive of the big cats. At Londolozi, however, they are quite the opposite. Established by the Varty family in 1926, it is among the finest private game reserves in the world. On our first drive we saw four different Leopards, and even a mating pair!

This was only the second time in my life that I have been fortunate enough to witness Leopards mating; the first time being earlier this year in Ranthambhore, better known to be finest place in the world to observe Tigers in the wild.

The Last Lesson

To visit Ranthambhore National Park is always a pleasure because to see a Tiger in the wilderness is a thrilling experience no matter how many times you see it.

At the end of November we were in Ranthambhore again, and we had the luck to be witness to an amazing lesson in Tiger lifestyle, given by the Tigress T-19 (Brat) to her two big boys, Akash & Suraj. (We know Yusuf doesn’t like these names but at the moment these are their unofficial names). Read More The Last Lesson »

The Tiger by the Lake

Green grass and watery lakes,
Beside the shore and lazy streams,
Long snoozes the Tiger takes.
Do you think the Tiger dreams?

Chirping birds and fishing storks,
Noisy waters made by crocs
The stripes swirl on the bank
As he turns to the other flank. Read More The Tiger by the Lake »
