Bengal Tiger Close-up-1 Just got back from a great trip to India (Ranthambore and Andaman Islands) and we had great luck with tigers. In 3 days, we took safaris morning and afternoon and saw tigers on 5 of the 6 trips! And not just "saw" them, but saw them with kills, stalking, and very close. Amazing trip - should anyone want to plan such a trip, let me know and I can help you maximize your chances. Seeing these amazing creatures close up is an unforgettable experience even for fairly well-travelled wildlife fans like myself.

The Bengal tiger is the most numerous tiger subspecies. Its populations have been estimated at 1,706–1,909 in India, 440 in Bangladesh, 163–253 in Nepal and 67–81 in Bhutan.
Since 2010, it has been classified as an endangered species by the IUCN. The total population is estimated at fewer than 2,500 individuals with a decreasing trend, and none of the ''Tiger Conservation Landscapes'' within the Bengal tiger's range is large enough to support an effective population size of 250 adult.. more
