A Foggy Morning in Kabini

Sheshadri Vasan

The name Kabini brings a big smile on my face and I am sure it’s the same with people who have visited this magical forest, which is a part of the Nagarahole National Park in Karnataka. It is a place which one would love to visit time and time again, especially a wildlife enthusiast and…

The Underdogs

Bhargava Srivari

In the woods of Nagarhole, not every killer is striped or spotted. Death here also comes in forms least expected. That’s because this killer hardly looks like one, but one could argue it packs a punch mightier than even the tiger or leopard. It is an animal that in a sense resembles the dogs we…

Praveen Siddannavar

It is rightly said and I believe too – wild animals ( especially leopard ) make their appearance or create a natural history moment when you least expect it.

These images were photographed a few years ago during the early winter months between 7:30 to 8am at Nagarahole Tiger Reserve, Kabini backwater range.

Kabini Tiger

Revolution!

Bhargava Srivari

There was a time when seeing a  Kabini Tiger  warranted extended celebration of the event. It was 2011, and I had been going to Kabini for 8 years already and had seen a Tiger on just three occasions. Kabini was and is still known as the land of Leopards, and rightly so; coming up against…

BLACK PANTHER

Phantom of the Forest!

Praveen Siddannavar

The Kabini tourism zone has been a hot spot for watching wildlife and not just for tigers and leopards. A Black Panther has been in the limelight for the past year and half. It’s still a mystery how, when and from where this Black Panther ventured into Nagarahole. There is a strong belief that it…
