Hurrah! Six new tigers at Ranthambore

Here’s some good news: six new tiger cubs were sighted at India’s national wildlife sanctuary Ranthambore this year. This brings the total number of tigers in the park to 38! 😀

In March 2006 we were fortunate enough to see tigers at Ranthambore on our vacation in Rajasthan. That was such an exciting moment; the park is beautiful and even without seeing tigers we would have had a great visit, but all of a sudden an adult tiger crossed the road just in front of our jeep:

Then a cub crossed the road behind her.

Shortly after we saw the tigers we spotted this Leopard:

Here’s a picture photo of the entrance to the park. It all looked very ‘Indiana Jonesy’:
