If making a visit to India is on your mind, you surely should not miss out on tiger spotting. India is home to a plethora of flora and fauna in its wildlife sanctuaries, bird sanctuaries, national parks, tiger reserves and forest reserves. Amongst all animals, probably the gorgeous tigers draw the maximum attention of the tourists who gain a memorable experience of catching a glimpse of the magnificent creatures. Tiger, being the national animal of India, is reckoned as an asset of the country.
If you are thinking of visiting the tiger reserves, plan your trip between the months of December and May when the weather is cooler. During monsoons, many of the parks and reserves close down. The Bandhavgarh and Kanha national parks in India have been claimed by tourists as the best sites for tiger spotting. Elephant and jeep safaris are the best to track tigers in the Indian reserves while enjoying the beauty of nature and other species of flora. You could have chances of watching tigers engage into thrilling activities with other animals. The site of Bandhavgarh was the place of discovery of the white tigers of Rewa.
The Indian wealthy wildlife is one of the most desired destinations of tourists from all over the world. One of the most popular attractions of the Indian wildlife is the Royal Bengal Tigers.

Ranthambhore is one of the largest national parks in India with a rich population of Bengal tigers. Sunderbans of West Bengal is the leading Indian national park. It is house to about four hundred tigers and the tigers found here are excellent swimmers. The Kanha national park, which had served as plot for Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, is dense, grassy and serves as a perfect habitat for the royal Bengal tigers. Jim Corbett national park is one of the finest sites for tiger spotting between the months of April and mid June. The park organizes elephant and jeep safari depending on your preference. Jeep safari hoists your chances of spotting tigers by covering wider areas in less time. Go along with a guide versed with the howls and cries of tigers, making it easier for you to spot one.
Tigers are a protected species. Tiger poaching has reduced the number of adult tigers in India. An estimate by India’s National conservation authority reveals that only 1411 adult tigers are in existence. Efforts have been made to protect the majestic creatures. Several government restrictions and projects like Project Tiger and Save the tiger have created awareness among common people to preserve and protect the wild animal. Most of the tiger reserves are under the Project tiger to create a safe and suitable atmosphere for the growth and survival of India’s national animal.
Successful preservation efforts have made India the home of more than half of the world’s tiger population- the Bengal tigers. India is a paradise for nature lovers. India offers immense prospects and unmatched experiences of wildlife tourism. A wildlife tour in the tiger reserves can be really fascinating and adventurous. Resorts with rooms and tented accommodations on the outskirts of the parks are also an ideal romantic getaway for some.
