We have been going to NSTR for 10 years now and all our hardwork paid off in 2017 when we sighted a pack of Dholes. There were around 30 dholes in the pack. The largest pack I have ever seen. I have visited Tadoba , Kanha , Pench , Kabini but never seen such a large pack of dholes. In the forest, there was a kucha road going inside the forest, we used to regularly visit the road and one fine day we sighted the dholes. Me and my father were busy clicking the photos of an Asian koel perched on a nearby branch when my mom spotted the pack. They were just 100 mtrs away from the main road , and extremely close to the people who were eating and drinking inside the forest , but no-one noticed them. They moved past our vehicle and went inside the forest. However, the kucha road has now been closed ( a good decision as many people used to go inside and litter the place and cause disturbance to wildlife) and only forest gaurds can go inside. The year 2017 was very lucky as we had even spotted a leopard one night at NSTR and last year my dad sighted a sloth bear at NSTR.
