ATR - Day 64: First safari in Bor Tiger Reserve goes without many good pictures
Missed the morning safari, for the reserve is a long way from our place of stay. Evening safari did not get us many good pictures even though there was reportedly some leopard movement.

Today was a slightly relaxed day with all of us getting up a little late in the morning because we had safari only in the evening.
For our evening safari, we visited Bor Tiger Reserve, which is relatively small tiger reserve about one and a half-hour drive from Nagpur City, where we are currently staying. And because it takes about one and a half hours to reach from our place of stay to Bor Tiger Reserve, we decided to skip the morning safari and go in the evening.
Bor Tiger Reserve does not have many tigers — just about 6 or 7 tigers — because the area is not large; so the tigers do not stay back here. Tiger sighting is also not all that great because there are not many tigers in the first place, and also because the tigers of Bor are slightly shy of human presence, which is not such a bad thing as such except that it makes clicking pictures of them much harder.
There are leopards, too, in Bor and they were on the move, too, for as many as four of them were reportedly spotted by others today, but we could not sight any. The jungle is pretty, all green, as most jungles are during the winter. But there were no great pictures or and no notable footage from today’s outing.
After the safari, we returned to Nagpur City and went to a mall to buy necessary items, after which we got some food and returned to our place of stay. That was how the day was spent.
