Bandhavgarh on the run...

Hello everyone.....
Been inspired by all the wildlife enthusiasts on bcmt I am making a small effort by sharing my experience...
Having been to Kanha every year since the last decade , bandhavgarh turned out to be a run to see the Tiger!!!!!
Let me first introduce all the wildlife enthusiast of my group.
I would start of with myself ofcourse and to join me were my husband, son ( 3 and a half years old), brother and my parents.
That made a group of varied age members on the lookout for the beautiful bhandhavgarh tiger reserve..
We started from Nagpur on the 6th of FEb 2010 at about 7 AM and with all our food and tea stops we reached at the MP tourism resort at about 6 PM.
The resort is nice but the staff takes its time to get into a mood of giving information of the safaris and places to be visited. Hubby got chatting with them and told them that we have been kanha loyalists for years and how we hope to not miss Kanha here, I think that kind of sparked the senses of the employees there and they told us abt places to be visited and the fantastic sightings people hv here in Bandhagarh. So the platform was well set for our morning safari and the adventures were surely looking out for us in the land of the Tiger............

Its early in the morning,very chill and all were up well in time as our gypsy was waiting for us. Tucked my son and mom into a large shawl and we proceeded towards the gates prepared for a interesting safari not knowing that it would turn out to be a memorable day of our lives.
As the gates open as always many gypsy drivers break the Q to get sooner thru the gates. Anyways breaking Q's is an intricate part of our lives daily here in our country.
Finally we break thru and ZOOMMM into the national park. We almost find ourselves lost in the dust of the still dark morning....
We pass glances at each other not knowing what was the rush all about, after a couple of mins we asked the driver to slow down as we were not on a rally and wanted to enjoy the sheer essence of the jungles. He was upset that we were not in a rush to just see the tiger, thats when we realised that every gypsy driver had only one agenda that was to sight a tiger at the earliest. Cannot really blame them totally as thats what most of the tourists want to do...
So here We entered the park zooming into the dust or i shall rather say our RUN to the park had just begun...............
