Staring into the eyes of a tiger standing less than two feet from you can be an experience in itself and when the tiger is loose and you are inside a cage (well almost) the experience is so hard to describe. Enjoying the safari in the Bannerghatta National Park- only one hour drive from Bangaluru (Bangalore), was just one such experience.
Starting from deer to crocodile to bear to tiger and lion, there was lots to intrigue and intimidate anyone and everyone. The cage (bus actually) was the one in which were seated the humans and free (almost) were the wild animals.
What topped the entire safari was the attitude of the tigers- from the looks of their demeanor they had we-don’t-give-a-damn attitude. For we humans it was so thrilling, a once in a life time kind of experience, and for them it was an everyday routine affair. They were right- we see tigers very very rarely but they see humans daily.
Anyhow, it was quite a memorable trip and since I was with my family it had all the fun I could have asked for.
Next time you visit Bangaluru (Bangalore), make sure Bannerghatta National Park is part of your itinerary.. And get ready to get thrilled..
