Trip Report: Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, India, March 2005

This was a Mammals trip with Naturetrek from 18-26 March 2005, focusing on Tigers. I saw 11 Tigers (6 adults and 5 cubs), plus Sloth Bear, Jungle Cat and four species of deer. I also recorded 101 species of birds including Blue-bearded Bee-eater and White-eyed Buzzard which were lifers for me.
