Getting good images of tigers or of any other animal in the park is highly depending on what type of driver and guide you get in the park. We were lucky to get two excellent guides who really knew how to track the tigers and understood the art of photography, how to place the car for the right light conditions and camera angles. 6 meetings with this fantastic animal gave us really good opportunities to take good images.

One morning in the Magdi zone we met a young mother with her three cubs, 10 months old. The mother would normally go into the jungle with the cubs following after, but this morning she decided to stay on the road. One of the cubs went into the forest to hide but another one was very curious and came up very close to the car.

To have a close up meeting like this is fantastic, but it got better. This young tiger found a very interesting tree and decided to climb it! Never though i would see tree-climbing tigers 🙂
The first male on the first picture in this posting is father to some of the other tigers in the park. One afternoon we arrived first to a place where two brothers had lay down to rest. This pictures is taken when they decided to move on.
Another evening we met the mother with the three cubs again, but this time they were more shy but got some good shots anyway 🙂
