15. How do we track Tigers and Leopards inside the National park?

Tigers are solitary animals and tracking them in the wild requires knowledge, experience , patience and good old fashioned luck. The national parks are big, spread over hundreds of square kilo meters but our expert guides (who grew up near the parks and they have spent good part of their lives inside their respective tiger reserves) know exactly where to go and what to look for.

We know these big cats and also know their territory, family history and behaviour very well.

We also keep an eye on where a kill has been made by the tiger, the chances are Tiger will return to the kill. After meal, the big cats head for waterholes , we know these spots very well. In the summer months, the cat cools itself in the water, we keep regular an eye on these waterholes.

Fresh pugmarks and droppings are also tell-tale sign that the tiger is nearby.Due to their high position on trees, Langurs can spot Tigers from a long distance, and sound alarm calls. Deer alarm calls are also very useful in spotting these beautiful cats. (Leopard alarm calls and Tiger alarm calls are different)
