Shades of the wild!
Behold the spectacular black and yellow amidst swaying grass or peep over a rock is enough to titillate your heart with colourful cameos. You need not be a wildlife enthusiast to appreciate this wild beauty. So exciting is it, that people abandon all luxuries and comforts to roam in the jungles ignoring scorching heat and biting cold.
There is'nt any other better place on the planet to encounter this fascinating beauty in its natural habitat than India.The Indian sub-continent has around 80 National Parks and 441 Sanctuaries of which some have been conserved as Tiger reserves under the Project Tiger Scheme.
Visit India!! and know what diversity is !
No place on the planet offers such a diverse spectrum of wild wonders as does India. This ecologically blessed land perpetuatuates wildness and scatters the colours of nature, randomly. In fact a trip to the Indian wild zone is like a rendezvous to the who's who of the Kingdom Animalia. The tourist's indeed can act as the parks' best ambassador and introduce them to the rest of the world. The exposure at times may harm the ecological balance of the area but the constant flow of tourist help put an end to the poaching and plundering of this endangered species.
Many of these tiger reserves are established in the former hunting grounds of the former Indian and British aristocracy. Some parks do offer modern styled guesthouses with electricity while others only have bungalows with basic amenities. Jeep or Van ride is available everywhere and in some, elephant or boat rides are organized to scan these areas more discreetly.
All these reserves are protected under 'Project Tiger'
and bookings are generally done at state forest departments or through private operators. Sometimes the state even promotes a particular area as a part of its tourist attraction. Advance booking in accommodation is advisable. One should obtain necessary permits, where required, prior to entry.
Save the pride of the wild!
Protecting the tiger is a serious cause and by the virtue of serious and persistent endeavors, this royal animal is now more and more active (and hence more visible). Hence, we must move ahead
