Bandhavgarh National Park
In the stark, arid plains and rushy jungles of Madhya Pradesh, Bandhavgarh National Park shelters a few dozen of India's last wild tigers. Crouching in the shadows, hidden in the reeds, Sher Khan and his mates lie in wait for the hundreds of thousands of visitors that come to peek at a real-life Tigger. Not as cuddly as their literary avatars, one of these tigers killed a village girl only a few days before we arrived. Please enjoy the photos from our four jeep safaris into the tiger's den. In addition to the stripeys, we also caught sight of peacocks, vultures, several kinds of deer, jackals, and, the terrifying "jungle chicken."
