On 09th Nov., 2009, Indus Excursion Team went on
- It has been noticed that resort occupancy in Bandhavgarh has fallen by 50% compare to last tourism season.
- It was observed that about 85% visitors are Indian domestic tourists, inbound tourists rarely seen during safari tour.
- In compare to Bandhavgarh, Kanha Tourism have good support from domestic tourism. On holidays/weekends, many domestic visitors from
Nagpur, Jabalpur& do visits Kanha. Raipur
- We begin our safari tour from Digdola area which is considered good for scenic beauty.
- It is often said that probability for Tiger sighting in Kanha is less in comparison to Bandhavgarh but we have comfortably seen two Tiger cubs of about 2 years of age in Naag Behra pond, playing with each other. They were with their mother. Sighting lasts for about 1 hour in that location. On further proceeding, we have noticed Tiger Show is also going on in other area but as we are more than satisfied with 1 hr. long tiger sighting, we moved ahead. We were surprised to know that Tiger sighting is not derived from any call.
- On our way to Naag Behera we have noticed fresh pug marks in Digdola hills also but there was no sign or tigers found.
- Throughout the visit, we have noticed cemented circular pillars of height about 3 ft. high and a numeric digit written on top. Our guide told me that these were the allotted number for each route and Kanha have 144 such routes.
- Recently, a 13 month old tigress was found dead, she was daughter of “7 number female tigress” had 3 cubs and all of them died due to some reasons. Now mother tigress was in stage of shock. Tiger show was going on for this aggrieved tigress.
- We have seen Crested Changeable Hawk Eagle in Naag Bahera area and did photography for atleast 15-20 mins.
- Through out the safari we have noticed a particular large sized spider between two trees. My guide told me it is “Giant Wood Spider”.
