I was six when we saw this magnificent sloth bear with her cubs. We actually had stopped there to see a Brahminy kite. But out of nowhere, the sloth bear turned up. It was an amazing moment and the first time I had ever seen a sloth bear. Seeing the sloth bear with her cubs was very rare because sloth bears are shy animals and tend not to bring their cubs out so much.
This trip to Kabini was a family trip and about 55 of us went. Kabini is a wildlife sanctuary in Karnataka, about 200 kms from Bangalore. It is an amazing place for nature lovers, with activities like safari, trekking, boating and plenty of animals and birds to see.
