My wife and I love the wildlife experience, be it birds, deer or the majestic tigers. We went to Ranthambore for a quick trip, and to try our luck with the king of the Jungle. What followed was beyond my wildest dreams. On the first day, we saw a tiger barely fifty feet from us. He was tired, lazing and then he just decided to get up. he walked for about hundred feet in the shrub but decided that the path was better.. and he just walked in front of us for the next fifteen minutes. There were about twenty odd vehicles, but inspite of the noise and disturbance, the Tiger knew he was the king, and walked lazily across the road. It was just awsome to see my first tiger in the wild. Over the next three days, we visited the jungle about six times, and saw 5 tigers, one of them three times. For those who like the jungle, Feb-May is a good time to go to the Ranthombore National Park. The sparse vegetation, heat and limited water makes most animals come to the water holes, and makes for a good sigthing season.
