Kabini Tiger Reserve
The trip included 4 Jungle safaris, organized by @wildterrain, with stay at Jungle Lodges & Resorts.
- 1 afternoon jeep safari
- 2 early Morning jeep safaris
- 1 afternoon boat safari
On our first jeep safari itself (afternoon one), we spotted a tiger at a waterhole. Many jeeps were already there.
Had to wait a long time for it to come out. Fortunately, it came towards us (~50-100m), rested a while, and went into the woods.
Many elephant shots came during the boat safari. It is an excellent way to see the wildlife around the backwaters of Kabini.

The boat safari started on a cloudy note around 4 PM, but after some time, the right amount of sunlight started coming to shoot the wildlife better.
