“Who goes for a trek in April?” some of my tech group colleagues had remarked once I proposed a team-building trip to Vasota Fort. While they had been right about the fact that April is an awful time to tour throughout Maharashtra, there had been exceptions like the Vasota Fort. The castle sitting in the center of the Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary is one of them. After plenty of debate and deliberations, we determined to do a holistic ride, which might consist of camping, a short trek, and a jungle safari. Since we had been a small institution of humans and the April warmness had started out to upward push, we opted for condominium cars, and luckily determined the most inexpensive Mumbai to Pune taxi fare on line.
It becomes a six-hour pressure from Mumbai to Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary, via Mahabaleshwar and we reached pretty without difficulty, way to our condominium vehicles and the experienced drivers. Our corporate reserving with a jungle inn supplied us with all-inclusive tent accommodations, a safari excursion, and an excursion to the Koyna Dam if we selected. On our itinerary, we had four jungle safaris, and so, we had been hoping to identify at the least one tiger. When we arrived in Nagpur, our motive force Ahmed took us to our first pitstop — Chava Resort in Chandrapur. To our wonder, we had natural world fans Pravin Katre and Aditya Mangrolia for business enterprise on Day One inside the Madanapur buffer zone of TATR. Since we have been traveling in May, the temperatures had touched around forty-six tiers Celsius. Zipping past the dry vicinity of the buffer region for greater than an hour, our manual Vinod asked the jeep motive force Manoj to park close to water hollow, in which we could hear a pair of tigers, Junabai and Kamkazari, mating. The noise of their roar and growling turned into an enjoy in itself. The wait became long, however, those tigers never got here out. But we managed to trap Junabai’s two cubs. The first one became a gift at the waterhole. After someday, every other cub walked in and settled down for its pool time. Our day was made already, as we had managed to gain what we had come here for.
