Tonight (BBC2) the BBC's 'Natural World - Tiger Dynasty' continues to follow Baghani, as the tigress adapts to her new home in Sariska National Park, after being relocated from Ranthambore.
Sariska is about 5 hours drive from Delhi near Alwar, which has an Aman Resort. Sariska itself has Sariska Palace, which was the most popular place to stay, including for our clients, when the names Sariska and Ranthambore were usually uttered in the same breadth, as names synonymous with tiger havens. The number of tigers started declining, in both parks but more so in Sariska due to environmental factors as well as poaching.
While both parks were popular some twenty years ago, Sariska lost all its appeal more than a decade ago when the number of tigers became nil. We have sent no clients there since. We also stopped using Ranthambore till about four years ago, when there was a resurgence in tiger numbers thanks to better protective measures. Today Ranthambore is known as a park with pretty high chances of tiger sighting, next only to Bandhavgarh and Kanha.
As part of repopulating some parks with tigers, some tigers were relocated to Panna, where it has been a success and on occasion a tiger can be sighted.
The attempt to get tigers back in the beautiful sanctuary of Sariska is not a day too soon, and will hopefully be a success.
There are some wonderful monuments at Deeg nearby, and the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary is not too far either. Sariska can easily be fitted into a Golden Triangle itinerary, covering the popular sites of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.
