Saaya the Black Panther
Wakanda Forever – That’s exactly what came to my mind on spotting Saaya on Nov 5, 2020 at Kabini. He was on my Bucket List ever since I saw him in a documentary sometime back.
Returning to the jungle after 9 long months, I was just happy being in the wild. Given Saaya is extremely elusive, we kept our hopes tempered as it generally takes weeks and multiple attempts for an average sighting. We were extremely blessed to spot him within 30 mins of our first ever Kabini safari.
What followed was probably the best 15 mins of our lives.
