Tadoba: My first Tiger in the wild!

Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve - The Real Land of Tigers!

This is what they say at Maharashtra's oldest and well preserved park. Aptly so. Watching a Tiger in the wild was always a dream and finally what a place to realize it!
Few days back I got my first DSLR(Canon T2i/550D) and was eager to try my hand at it. 
This was a  family trip, we made the train journey from Pune to Nagpur and back and then hired a vehicle for pick-up and drop at Moharli gate. Accommodation was booked at MTDC, Moharli.
Got inputs from Subrat and his lovely logs from his various visits to Tadoba. Booked the safaris from Bandu Mankar, who organizes gypsies for safaris inside the park. He will take care of all the entry requirements before you reach the place. The safari approximately comes out to be 2000 approx. per trip including all the entry charges.  We made 3 trips inside the park during our stay. Another thing worth mentioning is that the MTDC location is very nice and is surrounded by Moharli Lake on its 3 sides and other by the forest. The service at the restaurant is really slow and need prior intimation for food preparations. 
All in all the Jungle is really beautiful, whether you see a Tiger or not, the thrill of roaming around in the forest  and soaking up the beauty of it, is something worth dying for. Allrite, letting the snaps roll in...

All images were taken on the auto mode of the camera. Discount me on that as am very new to DSLRs!

The Majestic!
