Pilibhit tiger reserve is a forest very close to Delhi, but does not seem to get too many visitors, as ours was the only vehicle that was exploring the forest yesterday and today.
Apart from the many beautiful raptors and the pristine beauty, the forest paths were also full of fresh pugmarks of tigers as well as leopards and bears, but the mist was heavy, and the animals not familiar / comfortable with tourists. Since we had seen pugmarks of a mating pair we persisted on the same route for all 3 safaris and our patience was rewarded in the 3rd safari when this beauty walked out of the mist. Such a dreamy sequence this was 😃
