Spotting Tigers in India

Updated: 13th April 2021

India - a Safari Destination

Within a kaleidoscope of colour lies some of India’s most extraordinary landscapes from the scorching deserts of Rajasthan to the cold, rugged mountains of the Himalayas, the steamy forests of the Western jungle to the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Each is a veritable hotbed of nature’s biodiversity to rival anything that its better-known safari destination of Africa can offer. Forget Africa’s ‘Big Five’ of elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo of safari fame - with India you have the ‘Big Eight’ adding wolves, bear and the majestic tiger to your safari tick list. India remains the best place to spot these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat and is home to nearly 70% of the world's tiger population.

Not long ago, wild tiger numbers were in freefall, in India and the other nations which tigers call home. In 2010 there were as few as 3,200 wild tigers left. But thanks to concerted international conservation efforts, the tide does seem to finally be turning. An ambitious effort to double wild tiger populations is paying off, and India now has so many tigers in some places that it is translocating them to other parts of the country to establish new populations in places where tigers have been driven to local extinction. The tiger is the top predator in its environment, so we know that if tigers are doing well, ecosystems are functioning well, with plenty of prey animals too. This is great news, but there is much more to do. Tigers used to number in the hundreds of thousands across Asia.
