Lions & Tigers & Bears!

As a child growing up in Australia, I remember a very catchy advertisement on TV promoting an animal park in Sydney that went a little something like this - "It's the African Lion Safari, with lions and tigers and bears! It's the African Lion Safari, it's scary but nobody cares!" In addition to the scare factor, it appears nobody cared that the only tigers and bears in Africa are in zoos and that in fact the "Indian Lion Safari" would have been a more accurate name for the park!

Ok, no lions or bears this time around, but with the chance of seeing all three, along with blue eyed leopards, India is fast turning into a viable alternative safari destination to Africa! For this reccy, my wife and I decided to concentrate on two of India's premier tiger reserves - Kanha and Bandavgarh NP's in the central state of Madhya Pradesh...

For now, I'm posting some of my favorite images from both parks with a more detailed description of our seven day safari to come...

Wow, Dom. Those are great photos. Guess we need to put an Indian Safari on our bucket list.
