Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and his wife Dr. Anjali said goodbye to Tadoba on Sunday, this time Sachin’s wish remained unfulfilled for the sighting of Bhanukhandi, famous as Big Five.
On the eve of Buddha Purnima, Sachin Tendulkar along with his wife Anjali and some friends entered Tadoba for a four-day stay. They just enjoyed the nature and the safari. This is his fifth visit to Tadoba, he visited Tadoba two and a half months ago at the end of February. So Sachin is obsessed with seeing the many tigers known by different names in Tadoba.
After his arrival at a resort near Chimur on Thursday evening, he took a safari in the core zone through the Kolara gate. A small star and a bear were seen at this place. After that, on the next day, Friday morning, he and his family went on a safari in core zone through Kolara Gate itself. This time too, a tigress named Chhoti Tara and a tiger named Matka and other animals were seen. After that, on the same day, the safari took place through the Alizanza Gate into the buffer zone.
At this place there is a tigress named Bhanuskhindi. Sachin wanted to see her. But Sachin could see only her 2 cubs. She has four cubs in total. That is why it is known as Big Five.
During his four-day stay at Tadoba, Sachin got to see Chhoti Tara, Mowgli, Matka, Maya, two Bhanuskhindi cubs (Big Five), Yuvraj.
