I have been coming to this park from November 2008. This was my 7th visit. My last visit was during monsoons of June 2013.Although I thought of visiting this park in the fag end of june every year as by that time a spell of rains make a real heaven. No doubt tiger sightings are less as water is available at many places but if tiger comes on the lake side it is worth watching on the green carpet of grass.
During this visit ,I was allotted the desired zone no 2 as presently occupied by two tigresses T 39 and T 60 having 3 cubs each aging 8 months and 15 months respectively. We moved through Nalghati in search of the two families. We observed a sloth bear moving parallel to us about 50 meters from our route. This was my first sighting of sloth bear during the last 9 years of my visit to this park.
