Ranthambore and Tiger 'Arrowhead'January 28 in India
We were up early for our first safari into zone 10 which was largely disappointing and quite cool. The drive was more exciting.
After excellent breakfast and lunch we joined Kamal and Baba for our second Safari. We picked up two more couples, including Cliff and Maureen who had taken the train and had an almost as bad train journey as our drive, getting in barely half an hour earlier.
We hit the national park with lots of excited people shouting tiger, but all we found was total vehicle chaos which took a while to sort out. We then forayed into zone 4 and saw some interesting animals and birds especially by the waterhole. No tiger. We got back to where we had been earlier again greeted by people shouting tiger. This time we were in luck and spent half an hour observing Arrowhead, a young female, snoozing some 50 m distant. A great job from the A team guide and driver.Read more
