LEOPARD @ KABINI WILDLIFE SANCTUARY...!!!
It was 17 yrs since i visited Kabini Wildlife Sanctuary...This time it was my dream and determination to spot a Leopard and photograph it....We Stayed at Cicad Resorts and had 4 safaris including one Boat safari..It was very thrilling to see and photograph the Leopard. It did not come easily...Listning to Alarm calls by Langur we knew it was hiding in a bush...Later after 1/2 hour it emerged out to walk across the forest floor with its authoritative stride...What a sight it was....Lighting was low...at 6pm in the forest.
We also saw a pack of 9 wild dogs...which are rarely seen. Herds of Wild Elephants, Lone Tuskers, Malbar Gaint Squirrel, Striped neck mangoose, Lots of birds, Bisons, Cheetals, Sambar deer, Honey buzzard, Darters, Cormorants...etc.
All in all an interesting outing...which I recommend others should take.
