1400! That is the official number of wild tigers still living in India. But since they are widely poached, it is reasonable to believe that there are actually a lot less of them.
Tigers live in a dense forest environment. It is very difficult to spot them, Even when we know they're just a few meters away hidden in the bushes!
Sometimes, you can wait a whole afternoon by 35°C knowing a tiger is not far, hoping he'll take the road you're waiting on to go have a drink.
You can spend a whole week without seeing the slightest hint of a tiger...
And then when all hope is lost, you find yourself face to face with three tigers who have come to rest and relax on the sand of the track.
