063 / Tiger spotting in Central India

Till a few years ago, Panna National Park remained infamous for having lost its resident tiger population to poaching. A successful translocation programme and wide-ranging institutional changes have ensured that tigers are back in the park. Sightings are most probable in the long, harsh summers, when paucity of drinking water forces the elusive cats out of their dens. The easiest ones to spot are typically this tigress and her two cubs, who have made an incredibly regular habit of heading out for a morning drink while cutting across the park's most popular safari circuit. They nonchalantly cut through a gaggle of jeeps, day after hot day, oblivious to the wonderment of human visitors.
