Day 2 in Bandhavgarh National Park. When you are here, it is always about the tigers, but there are many other inhabitants that populate this beautiful landscape.

There is nothing like setting out to see Indian wildlife from elephant back on a chilly morning.
Here I am in Bandhavgarh National Park again. It is such an honor to be among these big cats in the wild. To travel on the backs of elephants into the bush is to travel back in time. Coming upon a tiger is like nothing else and each time it is still immensely exciting.

I love India and will be posting images throughout my travels, so stay tuned.

Here is a previous post with photos of tigers from a visit to Ranthambore National Park. >>CLICK HERE

India Photo Tour – Rajasthan

Blog: Rajasthan, India – Images by Art Wolfe

Rajasthan > Jodhpur > Manvar > Kichan > Thar Desert

On the last several days of our trip, we visited the region of Rajasthan and a small village near Manvar. Here is a glimpse of village life. Beautiful children and colorful homes show us the rich lives these people lead in the Thar desert.
I love the details they adorn their homes with and the roofs made from local materials.
