The Tiger Safari, Sawai Madhopur Ranthambhore

tiger safari fashionHiya Everyone

After 3ย unsuccessfulย safaris, we finally spotted the tiger on our 4th one. The first view of the tigress was the scariest. It was sitting under the tree. We were seeing the tigress sitting facing us with its scary massive face and it felt as if she was ready to pounce on us any moment. We had a very experienced guide and a driver with us. They took some wise decisions about where the tigeress would make its move. We were the only jeep waiting on top of the hill waiting for the tigress to come. It came… almost 2 feet away from us. When the tigress moved, the peacocks started making calls, the chitals stood in the alert postion, the monkeysย screamedย and scratched their heads and the bambis ran for their lives. The tigeress gracefully and royally moved across the forest, marked its territory and everyone just watched her quietly.

At one time the tigress stood a few feet away from us and gave us that look. *pee-in-the-pants* ๐Ÿ˜›

We were mentally exhausted after what we saw. We were stunned after our experience. It was one of the greatestย experiencesย we have had in our lives. Not sure if we’d re-live it but this one stays in our hearts for life time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Only a few more pics to share from this beautiful trip of ours. Will share them soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Rati di I am so very glad that you were able to watch the tiger! it is truly a last for lifetime moment! and i know how it feels when a tiger looks into your eye!!!!!!!!!!!! Once we were in thekadi, an island tourist spot in kerala, when i tiger and tigress came into the hotel! the management immediately switched off the lights asked us to lie low behing a wall and watch the beasts move! they were roaring too and the female’s roar was really menacing!!!!!!!! guess they had their own mia beevi jagda but chilled us to the bone! when finally the beasts had moved away we were sweating top to toe!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Rati says:

      oh boy!! that sounds like a super scary experience.. ๐Ÿ˜ I cam imagine it must be quite nerve wrecking. ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. esha jain says:

  4. priyadarshini says:

    Awesome pics..so you finally spotted the tigress .yippie:)
    I totally agree such experiences canโ€™t be put in words, you need to live them to believe.
    This specie is just so fearless , royal and beautiful na, totally love tigers and your post makes me want to go back to Ranthambore!!

    • Rati says:

      I think it’s the tiger that keeps bringing people back to ranthambhore. There were two americans who were coming to india for 11th time. And their aim is to see all tigers in india. They remembered tigers by the name. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Humera says:

    Ratiiii its awesome!!! Loved your outift and kudos to u guys for capturing the tigress live!! An experience outta the world! So envious! Btw, were you’ll in an open jeep? :O :O I thought you have those caged jeeps!

  10. aru says:

    OH MY GOODNESS!!! that was amazing..the video was fabulous….scary, exciting all at the same time..how lucky you guys are. must have been super super thrilling to see that Tiger and that too for so long..Ya the Tiger just seemed so cocky as if to say ‘I know you guys are scared of me” kind of in an arrogant way na? also it looked like you guys seemed to be travelling in an open jeep. all the more exciting!!

    You look very sweet Rati. That tshirt suits you well and the vest is so smart. I love the style at the back. That necklace is a fabulous accessory for an outfit like that. keeps it chic without going OTT for an outing like this.

    Do an African safari when you recover from this one..:)

    • Rati says:

      This was the second time the tiger was coming like that infront of our jeep. the first time I was too stunned to do anything. I think by this time I had sort of got in my senses and thought that I could take the experience back to share with you guys. :)) We were were in jeep but one with the top. First three safaris had fried our brain off so we asked the hotel to provide another jeep. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Our friends have done the African safari and that’s what they also told us to do. Hopefully soon. really want to do it Thanks. :-*

      how is your trip coming along? ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. aru says:

    My trip has been kinda ok ok so far. Mostly on my own but did manage to see a few things and hopefully more today if I can get out of work early. The fun starts tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Poorva says:

  14. Dipti says:

    whoaaaa Rati… Royalty!!!! and oh my goodness she was just 2 feet away… I would have freaked out….. I was so scared even while watching the video, when the tigress was walking ahead of your jeep I was just thinking what if it turns around and gets angry…. I would have prayed for my life if I were in your place..I am a total darrpok….hihihi.. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

  15. Dipti says:

    oh and all of you looked super cool, however, the women stole the show… You, Richa and the Tigress… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Rati says:
