Ha I was also going to ask "why Spotty?" as I don't see any spots! She should be Stripey :)

 

Fabulous encounter and photos! Soooo cute and love the shots in the little cave, very different!

Wow, great photos!  I may need to rethink writing off a safari to see tigers in India.

OMG Hari this is amazing. I had no idea there were tiny cubs there. It’s only 4 weeks and we will be there. Where did you stay? Which direction are they? Can I possibly see them, I cannot imagine anything better! Are you in the area in February? It would be great to meet you after all this time . Pen

Thanks so much for all the kind comments!!!  Much appreciated ....

 

@penolva - we stayed at the taj property .... but outsourced the game drives. 

 

In tala zone 

 

zone 3 is shut - elephants have moved in from chattisagarh and have never seen vehicles ( I also assume drives haven’t been around wild elephants ) like at Kabini etc 

 

have a blast!!!

 

i’m in Bandhavgarh again mid-end March - will miss you unfortunately.... 

 

Hari
