Tiger Number 2!
One thing that didn’t make it into the Corbett National Park video below was TIGER # 2!!! Our small success was shared with our fellow safari adventurers Richard, Will, Dave and James.
That’s right, we saw our second wild tiger in the park. Unfortunately, the very spontaneous 4-second viewing occurred during a monsoonal burst of rain that was threatening to collapse the canvas roof of our jeep.
As we were struggling to rectify the situation, Will suddenly yelled, “Tiger!” We all twisted around to see one very surprised, very drenched tiger emerging from the dense growth right alongside our jeep. Startled and amused by the irony of having our tiger sighting at the worst possible moment, we all started to laugh at the bizarre situation. Alarmed by our laughter, the tiger shot off into the jungle – Oops!
