I don't remember when and how my tiger obsession started, but according to me, there are very few experiences in travel which are as exciting as spotting a wild tiger.

In 2018, I have been to Bandhavgarh National Park twice in search of those stripes. Although the weather can be unbearably hot, the chances of tiger sighting is much higher in summer. I was fortunate enough to spot tiger in multiple occasions and relive those hair-raising, few rewarding moments after hours of searching, anticipation, hope and disappointment.
