After cancelled flights and new ones booked, missed connections I eventually arrived in India! A four hour drive to reach the Tuli Tiger Accommodation in Pench, in the middle of nowhere in the dark, the car had a puncture! Arrived tired and weary at midnight, ready for the wake up call at 4.15am.
Temperatures in the mid 40c (111f), high humidity with dusty and hazy days. Ten minutes into the first game drive the vehicle had a puncture, then another one 40 minutes later.
Some of the shots are heavily cropped, the 400 lens did its best but some of the tigers were a long way away.

Hope you enjoy the set, the evening light was beautiful.

Great shots, great experience! I wasn't so lucky when I visited Rathampore Tiger Reserve, so am happy for you that you persisted. Thanks for sharing.

After looking at the tires on that Rover, I don't believe I would have made a trip into bush on them

It looks as though all the trouble may have been worthwhile, Sylvia, as you have an excellent set of photographs.
