This is a great example of what good, regulated wildlife tourism can do! A once-in-a-lifetime sighting of a tiger on a kill in perfect setting, and tourists watch peacefully — no speeding, crowding or screaming!

On April 13 , 2009, I was expecting to photograph the seasonal elephant congregations on the Kabini backwaters, Nagarahole Tiger Reserve, during the customary boat safari and was rewarded with this absolutely fascinating sight. The tigress approached the gaur kill and started to feed on it. The tourists in our boat kept absolute silence and the tigress continued its feed.
