WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Tiger HOLIDAYS
The organisation was really good and the places we stayed were fabulous. The whole trip was just stunning. This was our first trip with Naturetrek and we will definitely be back.
Ron and I and one other person chose to do this extension and I know that we were all thrilled with what Tadoba offered. The transfers from Nagpur to Tadoba were handled well by the ground agents. At Tadoba we stayed in the Svasara Jungle Lodge which provided excellent accommodation and the facilities and food were fantastic. The transfers from Nagpur to Tadoba were handled well by the ground agents. Our group had the services of one of the Lodge's Naturalists, Chirag Roy, who we found personable and knowledgeable. Fitting with the Naturetrek comments on Tadoba, we found it excellent and relatively untravelled by other safari goers. As well as low visitor numbers, it delivered excellent Tiger sightings for our small group. Our first sighting started with us finding a female tiger lying on the road. She then proceeded to walk towards the jeeps, scent marking on the side of the road several times and rubbing her head on a tree. At this point, the jeeps were stopped and the female (P2) walked past the jeeps about 5 foot away - needless to say we all stayed very quiet and completely still while the image of that close encounter was imprinted on our brains. The female then proceeded to walk down the road away from us, and when eventually another vehicle arrived, she decided to sit down on the road facing us. All up we had brilliant views of P2 for over 10 minutes and only 3 vehicles were present for the majority of this time. On a separate occasion, our vehicle followed a large male tiger down the road for around 4 minutes until he moved off the road to go to a stream for a drink which we were able to watch for a couple of minutes. Our guide was able to take our vehicle around to another viewing point where he thought we would be able to see the male and after a short wait we were able to watch him settle down for a rest in the shade. As well as these two sightings we were also able to get views of 2 additional separate tigers lying down in the forest. While only a very small amount of the actual tiger was visible the sightins proved to be enticing and exciting. As well as these brilliant tiger sightings we also managed to get a reasonable view of a mother Sloth bear and her cub and excellent views of a small Dhole pack. These were in addition to the many repeated sightings of the various deer, Gaur, Mongoose and many, many birds. Tadoba certainly lived up to its reputation and we would highly recommend it to anyone.
What a fantastic trip! We saw tigers on 4 days out of 6, including following one for 25 minutes; the other wildlife was equally brilliant. Accommodation and food was food was superb and logistics were very well organised – particularly having a hotel room on the final night in Nagpur. Nick is a fantastic tour leader. His wildlife knowledge is staggering and his interpersonal skills make him perfect for the role. Thanks a lot all!
