Will be doing 5 safaris in Nagzira from Chorakhmara - was there a couple of months back, wanted to go back during the summers again. Planning to stay in FDCM inside the core area (was also considering Nagzira Nature Camp but nothing really beats FDCM so will mostly stay there only). Reaching Nagpur on 4th night and will head to Nagzira at night itself. Safaris from 5th morning to 7th morning, after which will be heading back to Mumbai via train from Tiroda. Rough expenses given below - let me know soon.

Tanmay Keshav You can go to fdcm at the end of your first safari

Sandeep Gupta Hi Tanmay, booked the log hut around month of May end for 2 days. Please guide me about safari bookings as I am confused after calling Mr. Pankaj Jibhkate, of the Eco Tourism Complex , I am confused if I have to book the safaris separately or included with the log hut booking. Thanks

The habitat of a leopard in Sariska - Dec 2017
Every time I have seen leopards in Sariska, it's been on top of cliffs. Makes for a great scene but still did not have a frame which showed that well enough. Was quite happy with this one though. This was about 9:30am when the sun was out and we were just starting to feel more comfortable. A few kms before the Paandupol area, we were scanning the cliffs and right on the top, we saw this leopard out in the sun. Thanks to our guide, Ajay for this one - some excellent spotting from far.
Also, my best wishes for the new year to everyone in this wonderful community! Hope to travel to plenty more places together and sharing those moments with everyone.

I recently made a short last minute trip to BR Hills (this is the entrance point), just wanted to share some information regarding it.
Drive time from Bangalore was about 4 hours and we stayed in the wonderful JLR property - K Gudi Wilderness Camp. While I had booked a standard room (about Rs 3500 per night per person), once we reached the property we upgraded to the cottage. Not that the standard room was bad, it was great but once we were there, paying that bit extra for the cottage was totally worth. There's plenty of birding opportunity within the property and staying in the cottages allows you to be in the thick of things. There are a few bird baths in the Golghar (dining area) and this is the centre point of birding activity in the lodge, especially on sunny days. Unfortunately, when we were there (mid November), it was a little cloudy and not the best conditions for birding within the property. For birding in general, December is a better time since the migratory birds start arriving there in November.
Generally we have a perception that wildlife in Karnataka is quite expensive, however paying 4K per person including 2 safaris a day, all meals along with a stay right in the jungle, I feel it's brilliant! When it comes to big cats, you need to be incredibly privileged to see one in these environs but it is teeming with wildlife, great birding activity in a unique habitat at the confluence of the Western and Eastern ghats.

Tanmay Keshav Hi Manil, tigers are there but quite difficult to come across them. In short, don't go there to see tigers ;) I loved it, you can easily reach from Bangalore..a 4 hr drive

Brown-fish owl in its habitat #brhills
From a recent trip to BR Hills. Saw them quite a few times, always close to water reservoirs (as you would expect). Unfortunately they were looking the other way every single time! With a great spell of monsoon, the forest was at its vibrant best and it was a superb experience overall. Will post more pictures and details from the trip in the coming few days.

It was only our 2nd safari in Gir and we came across a rather big pride of lions. This sub-adult was among the bolder & older of the cubs with a mane that was starting to gain prominence. It took strides towards us and settled down very close to our jeep, tucking itself nicely on the bark of a tree. Was the closest i've ever been to lions, they were probably only 4-5 feet away. Personally, was an extremely exciting moment and that's when I managed to take this portrait.
