Home of tiger, Bandhavgarh National Park attracts large number of tourists every year. This park offers the best chance of seeing Royal Bengal tigers in its natural habitat because the density of tiger population at Bandhavgarh is the highest known in India. Apart from tigers, frequently sighted animals in this park include sloth bears, deers, leopards, jackals, birds etc. Tourists... More

Bandhavgarh in India has been reported to have the highest density of tigers among all national parks and due to its small size, the possibility of spotting a tiger in this park is deemed to be on the higher side. However, this situation keeps changing year on year depending upon the number of tigers killed, specific sectors gaining more traction... More

Go there just to enjoy the forest drive. If you happen to see a tiger, consider yourself 'lucky'. Only 20% of the tigers are in the buffer zone, where the jeeps roam. Rest are in the 'core' area, where you are not allowed. That too, each tiger occupies 45 sq km, so chances of sightings are rare, really rare.

If you expect the tigers to come and receive your highness, then please climb down from your high horse. How would you feel if you had visitors at your home everyday twice daily for a couple of hours each time? This is precisely what the wildlife there go through thanks to us nosy homo sapiens! But if rare for the... More

People visit Bandhavgarh with purely one agenda in mind- TIGERS, which is so unfair! This lovely forest has much more to offer. Don't miss that. In our 5 safaris here, we sighted 90 plus birds, 15 mammals, 5 reptiles, and over 50 different tree varieties. Learnt a lot about various medicinal properties, and several other local uses of these plants.... More

The sightings in Magadhi zone and Buffer zone are amazing and also the management of park along with allocation of zones is done in a fair manner. The guides will speak politely and they will try their level best to help you spot an tiger in the wild!!!!! Contact Mr. Teerath Singh for all your safari bookings who has organised... More

This is a tiger preserved and supposedly has the highest density of tigers in India. We did not see a tiger during the two days that we spent in the reserve (4 jeep safaris, two in the morning and two in the evening). We heard from another group that they had seen one shortly before we arrived at the point... More
