About the event:

The Sanctuary TOFTigers Wildlife Tourism Awards 2014 aim to highlight and reward the very best in the nature tourism field; those individuals, businesses, service providers and community enterprises who are leading the way in India’s wilderness destinations. Each in their own way will be pioneering new ways to support and inspire wildlife conservation, engage local communities and help restoration of wildlife habitat through their vision, drive and actions.

There are eight categories of awards, from wildlife guide, lodge naturalist, eco-lodge and wildlife destination to community related tourism initiatives, most tourism friendly parks, wildlife promotion company and wildlife tour operator. The winners will be announced at a prestigious gala awards dinner in Delhi on September 19, 2014.

 My first visit was to Corbett Tiger Reserve, and the most recent to Pench Tiger Reserve, Maharashtra. Though the best managed park according to me is Kanha, Pench Maharashtra deserves a huge credit, in the revival and move-forward ways. The Park under the hands of Mr. Reddy, has not only come back but the other measures taken with respect to its long term conservation are really awesome. I would go with Pench tiger reserve, Maharashtra.

 I was in Kanha Tiger Reserve last month and it is undoubtedly the most beautiful park.

 We often criticise lodges and parks for doing the wrong thing. But some lodges, park managers, guides and others involved with wildlife tourism ARE doing the right thing. And without them few of us would be able to take many of the images we love to take. We want to know who the good guys are so we can hold them up as an example for the rest to follow. If you know people who should be recognised, then RECOGNISE them by recommending them. NOW!

 I recently visited the Pench Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra. My vote for the Visitor Friendly Wildlife Destination of the Year 2014 will definitely go to this superbly managed park.
