No sooner than when we arrived at our hotel in Bandipur called 'The Serai' we had to dash off to the National park office to join a twilight safari in an old bus like vehicle. We saw a number of animals but no actual tigers.
Tiger country outside of the hotel looking towards the National Park.
There were quite a number of peacocks and peahens in the scrub land.
We saw a very big Indian Bison or 'Gaur' and several wild boar.
We saw an elephant in the distance hiding in the scrub and some monkeys.
There were large numbers of spotted deer and the closet we got to seeing a tiger was a pug (paw) print in the mud by a pool of water.
