I’ll always remember how excited I was before that first jungle drive, and I’ll always remember how it hurt to realize that finding the elusive cat is hard.
However, out of nowhere, it was right there. Beautiful in its fierce black and orange striped coat, with a killer look and a killer attitude. My very first wild tiger.
I wanted even more after that brief moment. I have seen 103 different people since I moved to Central India today, the world’s premier tiger habitat. However, whenever I look into those eyes, I experience the same excitement that I did on that first day in Ranthambhore.
