April 18, 2017 – We stood by one of the side arms of the Karnali River in Bardiya and just about to leave when we heard alarm screams from a number of deer, followed by crackling of bones, and a little later rustling in the bushes just in front of us. A large male tiger dragged his lunch snack down just before our eyes and disappeared into the tall grass on the other side of the river. Not easy, a deer of 80 kilos between your front legs, but as a predator you have to have something for lunch.
