Made a rare sightingMy husband and I went on a short vacation to wildlife reserve forests in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala. This has been one of the most adrenaline-charged road trips we have taken. The forests in Mudumalai in Tamil Nadu and Bandipur in Karnataka were bone dry, making it easy to spot wildlife. Kerala, on the other hand, was lush green. We saw scores of deer – nilgai, cheetal and barking deer among others. We spotted peacocks and one of them even did a dance for us. There were wild elephants and wild boars on the roadside. We spotted some rare birds and flying squirrels, langoor and lion-tailed macaques as well.
However, the icing on the cake was sighting a tiger in the wild. It walked past us at just 20 metres. Majestic and so graceful, it stopped, turned, gave us a good stare, before disappearing into the tall grass.
Have you ever seen a tiger in the wild?
