  1. If you’re planning to go to a tiger reserve in India, do plenty of research first, and choose carefully. We visited the tiger sanctuary at Sariska (as part of our Fairy Queen train trip package). It wasn’t a very good experience.

    Most of us doubted that there were even any tigers there, we certainly didn’t see any and the local staff were wandering about the place on foot. If there had really been tigers around surely they’d have been more careful.

    Personally I was glad that we didn’t come across any tigers as we were in an open-topped vehicle, driven by a maniac, which kept stalling on the hills. Never again!

    If you plan to visit a tiger sanctuary try to get a word of mouth recommendation first and don’t believe all the promotional material you might read.
