In the 400 square kilometers of Ranthambore National Park in the Indian state of Rajasthan, lurk 70 Bengal tigers. Never before has the nature reserve been home to so many.
Ranthambore Nature Reserve in India has long been the private hunting ground of the Maharajas. The 400 square kilometer national park is now one of the best places in the world to observe Bengal tigers. But to meet them, you have to embark on a safari, and get up at dawn. France Télévisions went looking for it with a forest ranger and one of the best guides in the park. A male finally appears, lying in the grass, relaxed.
A mother and her young come to quench their thirst in a pond along the road. “The last time a tiger family was seen on the reserve was six years ago, so we’re in luck“, launches the guide. The park counts nearly 70 tigers: never had it sheltered so many. The endangered species is protected here thanks to the work of the NGOs. Today there are less than 4000 Bengal tigers in the wild on the planet.
