Kanha Tiger reserve

Location: Kanha Tiger Reserve, India

My magical four days at Kanha and Kipling Camp. Kanha is in the state of Madhya Pradesh north and slightly west of Nagpur

Feeding Tara - Kipling's resident elephant after her bath

The Shamiana and fire pit at Kipling Camp

Tara - she's about 45yrs old and started off as a begging elephant before being bought by Mark Shand some 20 years to carry him around India - their journey can be read about in 'Travels with my elephant'.

Tara giving herself a pedicure with a twig held in her Trunk. She''s also rubbing her back leg toenails against the rock to file them down.

A nervous Chital deer stag surveys the frosty grass shortly after dawn. There's a Leopard in there somewhere - minutes later she crossed the road behind our Jeep.

Me and Tara. She's been saddled up with the Howdah again to take us back to camp after her daily bath in the Banjar river.

A Tigress drinking from a stream. We drove around the corner on an afternoon drive and came across her padding down the road towards us. The Tigers like to use the roads to get about as they are easier on their paws then the Jungle floor. We had to reverse for about 200m down a very rough track until she decided to leave the road and walk along the stream bed instead!

Helen and I in the jeep at Kanha - note the extra layers... I also have a hot water bottle under my fleece!

The new man about town -having a tough day! The mahouts said he had killed a Gaur (massive Indian Bison) so would be returning to that spot and the kill to eat for about a week.

Going into the jungle on elephant back to see the new Alpha male relaxing under a tree.

I think I'll call him Shere Khan - he looks the part!

Its tough work this King of the Cats lark!
