Bengal Tigers are reckoned to be the King of Indian Jungles. Living in the deep and dark woods, these Big Cats are a subject of great interest for many wildlife lovers. Tigers have always remained special to India and have been spoken about in several Indian lore and traditions. These largest members of cat family are known for their unmatched power, their ability to camouflage, hunt and keeping of large territories of jungle to themselves. It is nothing but sheer delight to witness such a majestic animal right infront of one's eyes, ofcourse not behind a cage but in its natural habitat. Amongst the various wildlife reserves in India, Corbett National Park has been the favourite haunt for wildlife enthusiasts. Corbett is also the first national park in the country to initiate Project Tiger. Today, this national park offers great opportunity to wildlife aficionados to stay amidst the jungle in the forest lodge and experience the thrill of being closer to these big wild cats. Recently five tigers were spotted in Corbett National Park, which is a sign of assurance that one has fair chances of sighting tigers here. You can watch video below:
