Nice photos, please upload some more pics and details of the trip when you find some time.
I still wonder why you kept your juggernauts at home and took the i10 for such a long trip, which includes some rough patches of road!
Generally people prefer to use their small car for city/ near to home/ daily commutes and the bigger ones for long drives!!
What sort of pics & details are you looking for Bro?
About the vehicle, yes its our first long trip in Such a small vehicle! However it definitely won't be a last one as Blue boy has gained our respect regarding reliability and ease of use.
One of the main reasons we took a small hatch was that we were only 2 people. And I wanted to train my wife for long distance highyway driving (which she did very well)

Agreed, the polulation is reducing day by day.
However the new rules which forest dept has made does not even allow us to roam what meager 10% area thats open to us!

Couple of queries for you
I am planning for a 3-4 days road trip in March.
If I have to chose one national park to visit amongst Tadoba/Kanha/Bandhavgarh, which one will you suggest? I would be visiting from Hyderabad so Tadoba seems to be the closest.
Maximum how many persons can be accommodated in the jeep for safari ? 3.5-4 K for a safari is indeed very high.
Whats your motto for visiting?
If you want Tigers, Try Tadoba then kanha.
Bandhavgarh has spoiled its name by being very expensive and no tigers at all (other tourists were shouting the same)
If you want to explore dense forest and scenery (esp bamboos) Then go to pench.
A Jeep can hold max 6 people. Atleast Half people should carry Photo ID in original. The Jeeps are not comfortable unfortunately. (no legroom, knees hitting next seat)
If you are planning Tadoba or pench, Try carrying your own SUV and roam at peace.
