Weekend in Wilderness

India is now the proud abode of 70% tigers in the world - the gorgeous beast whose existence was in danger some years ago. Located in Karnataka, 80km from Mysore, Bandipur, along with four other national parks across three states in the Western Ghats of India together form the largest tiger reserve in the world. Despite this, we never had the fortune to sight this animal on our regular weekend escapades to the Nilgiris, until we booked a serious 6 hour safari with the Jungle Lodges. Check out our photo story here and then read our blog for all the details

Welcome to Jungle Lodges and Resorts

Each of the cottages are named after an animal native to Bandipur. Ours was Leopard

Be careful of the bachelor monkeys.. not all of them are family people with a disciplined life like this !

Saw a tiger too far away to be able to click a perfect picture. Returned with little regrets

I'm almost convinced that the beauty of the jungle is the only thing we could capture.. Tiger sighting is not in our luck
