Tiger Tiger

No other animal on the planet stirs such awe, fear, and reverence as the tiger, the true king of the jungle. If the tiger is to survive, clearly its best chance lies in India. But the outcome is very much in doubt. On this program you will have the opportunity to visit three of India’s most important tiger sanctuaries—Bandavgarh, Kanha, and Pench—and try to understand all the forces at play in determining the tiger’s fate, including, but not limited to, poaching and loss of habitat due to intense population pressure.

While the tiger is certainly the prime objective of our jeep and elephant safaris, you’ll be amazed at the vast array of wildlife with whom he shares the jungle (i.e. his menu: several species of deer and monkeys, wild boar and buffalo, and some of the most colorful birdlife on the planet). The naturalist guides, in addition to attempting to maximize your sightings of all of the above animals, will provide a framework within which you will begin to understand the complex interrelationships of the intricate ecosystem known as the Indian jungle.

Tiger Tiger

Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

~William Blake (1757-1827)
