In January we booked 2 safaris one in evening second one in morning. Evening trip was in Khitauli gate. My advice is not to book this gate because chance of seeing tigers in this zone is very less. We could not find even charm of a forest there. But TALA zone is a different story. Beautiful a real forest. We... More

In order to protect tigers from the pressures of commercial tourism, tourists numbers are severely restricted. The park has been divided into 3 zones. Of these, Tala Zone is the most popular due to the number of tiger sightings there. Only 16 jeeps are allowed in Tala Zone at any one time, so it is not a park where you... More

The running of this park is terrible. The resorts all book the jeeps in advance in anticipation of customers, so if you turn up either last minute or on a budget it is an absolute farce. It is not possible to book the day before, instead we had to get to the gate at 2.30am to queue for the chance... More

The Forest authorities allow 2 safaris during the day - one early in the morning and one later in the afternoon. We did both of these on two consecutive days. The forest was lush after the rainy season and the drive through the forest was really enjoyable. Though we managed to see the big cat only once and the exceedingly... More

I went to Bandhavgahr in the spring of 2014, and the mornings were rather cold. I was told activity would be low. Still it was amazing. A true gem in the wildlifewatching world-not only locally, but on a global scale. There you may see monkeys, Big herds of spotted deer and sambar deer. Nilgai and gaur are both present. You... More

This reserve is a credit to India. it abounds with innumerable species of wildlife. You can be driven round a section of the reserve (it is huge and it would take days or weeks to see it all) in a jeep and I can guarantee that every few meters there will be a new selection of animals in their natural...

It is tiger reserve but you seldom spot a tiger.but even if you don't spot a tiger, jungle safari , with true feelings of jungle is marvellous. Away... More

It was fantastic to see the wild tigers. We were lucky enough to see 5 tigers while visiting this national park. The terrain is very rough in parts and the park is quite spread out. We also enjoyed the many other animals that make this park their home.

Before packing your bags for bandhavgarh remember to book safari tickets online. These tickets are usually not available at the last minute. Some of the guests who stayed with us commit this mistake and could not do a safari. We had booked it with the hotel in advance so we could do the safari and also saw a tiger. If... More
