Alessandra Sikand, Resident Manager of SUJAN Luxury’s Sher Bagh Tented Camp and all-round wildlife aficionado, reports from a thriving winter safari season at Ranthambore.

“Today I took our guests who are here on their honeymoon out to the park and we saw T17, a female tigress, who recently had her radio collar removed.

T17 is of Ranthambore royal descent – her mother is Machlis, otherwise known as ‘Lady of the Lakes’ – the oldest living tiger in the wild.

She walked right past our jeep and we spent a long time with her in different locations of the park trying to make a kill.”

One of the original ‘Project Tiger Reserves’ and Ranthambore continues to flourish as a good source population for the Tiger, with the birth of eight cubs in the last season.  Currently 75-80% of visitors, staying at Sher Bagh have reported sighting a Tiger.
