Some years ago, I was invited by the Indian Government in order to track and take pictures of tigers and tour 5 National Parks; Sariska, Ranthambore, Bandhavgarh, Keoladeo Ghana and Khana.
I was for 3 weeks getting up at 5 in the morning, touring the national park until noon, returning at 2 pm until 6 pm.
The first 18 days I could only see traces, scratches, urinated plants and tiger droppings but no tiger. When there were two days left to go back, I could see 7 tigers!!
The first was majestically taking a sunbath, the second hidden in the jungle trying to hunt.
That afternoon another one. The next day I saw a female who had caught  a young deer and was teaching her to hunt her cubs. I could not believe that in two days I could seen 7 tigers!!  It was a shocking experience!! 
I have been a nature photographer for almost 30 years and  have seen and photograph wildlife many times but it was different.
When I saw the first tiger it was very exciting, I fell a few tears but I could quickly recover and started taking pictures. 
I was amazed and satisfied to be able to leave India with a good and valuable harvest .
