Hot afternoons are uncomfortable at the best of times and all of us like to retreat to a cool spot, a private swimming pool, of course would be the best bet. Can you imagine how you would feel if you were forced to wear a fur coat?

Tigers are no different and this evening during the boat safari we came across one cooling off in her own private pool!

She did not take too kindly to being disturbed and waited for us to leave. When she realized that we were in no hurry she decided to take evasive action and retreated into the cool shade of the bamboos. I guess she did not like being ogled at while in the pool. A sentiment all women share, regardless of their species!

We may have disturbed her but she definitely made our day!
