Want To Spot Tigers? Bandhavgarh National Park In Madhya Pradesh Is Exactly Where You Need To Be

    What Makes It Awesome

    Bandhavgarh National Park, one of the most beautiful forests in India is home to the largest number of Royal Bengal Tigers. With an expanse of 1530 sq. km the park never disheartens the adventurists. Being divided into three zones, Tala, Magadhi and Khatauli, the chances of spotting the big cat are highest in this park. In the backdrop of historical Bandhavgarh Fort, Tala with its abundant water bodies and bountiful flora fauna is the most picturesque zone out of the three. Magadhi is better known as a heaven for the bird watchers. Bandhavgarh is perfect for those who love the wild and wilderness.

    What's My Pro Tip?

    Bandhavgarh has no airport. The closest is Jabalpur airport at a distance of 3.5 hours. The roads are superb and one rather enjoys the journey through a vast expanse of land on red soil on both the sides. In case you enjoy the train journey, Umaria is the station to get off from where a 45 minutes drive takes you to the Tiger's land. The best time of the year to go is months from October to May. Also, safaris need to be booked in advance else you may end up struggling for the glimpse of the beast. Morning safaris begin at 7am {recommended for the summer months} and afternoon safari starts at 3pm {recommended for the winter months}. Please carry a sweatshirt or jacket for the morning safaris as early mornings are chilly even in summertime. Also, you must remember to carry your scarf, cap, sunglasses and camera.
