When The King Arrives

Khitauli zone of Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, Madhya Pradesh, India is not a zone most choose for safari as it lacks the frequent tiger sightings. I prefer the area as it’s a less disturbed and has great faunal diversity. On one such safari we bumped into a tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) named Mukunda male. Rarely seen, this big cat does not prefer having vehicles around and as he appeared from the forest he made it clear.
