We had 5 game drives in Bandhavgarh National Park and enjoyed the variety of wildlife including some fantastic clear and close views of tigers but it was marred by the "couldn't care less attitude" of some of the guides and the drivers pushing each other and cutting off the tigers path. We were interested in all the wildlife, big and... More

The park is split into three zones and the prices for each differ. Zone 1 is supposed to have the most sightings and hence has the highest price. However over the past twelve months there has been a reduction in the number of Tigers in Zone 1 and Zone 2 has taken over as top of the sightings table. So... More

When we were at Bandhavgarh, we got a little annoyed at the whole process of getting into the reserve, as firstly it wasted time in the mornings and also its a game of luck as to if you get a good zone or not. But having visited other national parks, I have realised that it is done for a reason... More

Bhandhavgahr has one of the highest concentrations of wild Tigers in the world! Over 3 drives we saw a mother & 3 Cubs as well as a large male! All within about 50' of our truck. Amazing & a big cat lovers dream come true!

Yes we saw a Tiger...but not all who visit do. It is a nice NP to visit, most impressive on the hillside tracks (Drivers have assigned routes that they can use so check that you go to the Hillside route- sorry I can't remember what letter it was). This was where we saw our female tiger early evening safari....Amazing.

So, I wasn't lucky to see the tiger, just deers and an eagle: a jeep in our group found the tiger by the way. The problem is another: it is damn difficult to reach this place: looking for busses&trains, at the end I decided to go by taxi from Khajuraho, dividing with other two people. Then another problem is that... More

Bandhavgarh named after the famous bandhavgarh rock which according to Hindu mythology was gifted to Laxmana by his Brother LORD RAMA. Bandhavgarh used to be hunting grounds for Maharajas and British rulers for decades until in 1968 when it was declared as national park and in 1972 the project tiger is started.
