India’s nature is not as well-known as Africa’s, but here there is at least as exciting animal life. Here in the world’s largest democracy, you have the opportunity to meet several species of deer and antelope, lots of fantastic birds and the world’s largest cat, the tiger.

India is an absolute must for those interested in nature, and for the nature photographer it offers fantastic opportunities for pictures of animals and birds. Seeing and photographing tigers is of course our big goal on this trip and to get as many chances as possible for encounters with the tiger, we have chosen to visit one of the best national parks for tigers in India, Tadoba National Park. Our guides will do their absolute utmost to ensure that we get to experience the tiger up close and with a little luck and patience, it can become memories for a lifetime.

For those of you who have been on the trip to South India, the trip starts with a flight from Bangalore to Nagpur. If you chose to go only on this part of our India adventure, you will fly from Delhi to Nagpur. Then there will be further transport to Tadoba National Park and this is where our search for the world’s largest feline, the tiger, begins.

Tadoba is not as well-known a national park as e.g. Kanha, Bandhavgarh or Ranthambore but in recent years has proven to be one of the absolute best national parks to see tiger and leopard. The national park has one of the densest populations of tigers and in April, when the heat and drought sets in seriously, the wildlife concentrates around the few waterholes that exist. In Tadoba, there are both natural and engineered bodies of water very strategically located to create the best possible conditions for seeing and, above all, photographing tigers. It is not uncommon to see tigers lingering around the waterholes for long periods of time, busy drinking and cooling off in the water.

Of course the tiger is the main attraction but Tadoba they offer so much more. In Tadoba there are several species of deer and antelope such as axis deer, sambar deer and nilgai and with a bit of luck we may also get the opportunity to see and photograph the chausingha, the world’s only four-horned deer. The very rare and shy Indian wild dog, Dhole, is also found here. Often it takes a lot of luck to see these amazing animals but in Tadoba they are seen regularly and the national park has to be counted as one of the best when it comes to Dhole. In Tadoba the lip bear is also common and this usually shy bear is seen regularly. The birdlife in Tadoba is very rich and we will have opportunities to experience and photograph many species.

Mer information

    As we will have opportunities for many different types of subjects, everything from landscapes to reptiles, mammals and birds, it is advisable to bring everything from wide-angle lenses to telephoto lenses. Even a macro lens can be very useful. On safari, whether by jeep, boat or on foot, lenses from 70-200mm to 500mm are excellent. To increase the focal length, you can use a teleconverter. During vehicle safaris, it is important to bring protection for the camera equipment as it is very dusty. If you have access to two camera bodies, it is good to have these with slightly different focal lengths. This is to avoid having to change lenses. Tripods are difficult to use in safari vehicles, here bean bags work better.

    The climate in South India is tropical, which means that both days and nights are warm, the temperature often rises above 30 degrees during the day and rarely below 20 at night. However, the nights are colder on the days we are at a higher altitude in the mountains, so you need a thick sweater in the morning. Pack light and cool but durable clothes. A thinner rain jacket or poncho is good to have with you. Bring a cap or beanie as protection from the sun. Hiking boots or a pair of thicker trainers are the best choice for the feet. Feel free to complete with some kind of sandals to wear in the middle of the day.

    We stay in hotels and lodges of medium standard.
