What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
What can I say.....We had 15 game drives booked, plus one extra. Everyone wants to see tiger, and for us they were very elusive. We kept missing that close sighting by five minutes and began to believe than it might not happen. You keep telling yourself that you KNEW you might not see the tigers....but you want it so much. We had glimpses, teasing and tantalising. Our tour leader, Krishna, was determined that we would find a really good view, and he and our guide, plus our driver, worked hard to deliver. Finally, early one morning, we rounded a corner and heard the words 'Tiger....in the road and coming toward us!!'
It could not have been better!! I believe that my heart stood still for several moments, as we drank in the magnificence of the most beautiful animal I have ever seen. The tigress passed within two metres of where I sat and her photograph is now proudly displayed in my office. We were able to watch her for some time, as the driver reversed up the road allowing her to walk towards us.
