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

We went on a total of eight safaris, six in Maghdi and two in Tala. Tiger sightings this season are more likely in Maghdi, however there were sightings during our stay in Tala as well. We also were lucky to see a leopard in Tala where the scenery is much more dramatic as well. Our guide, Mukesh Burman (9425344631), made... More

This was my first ever visit to any national park and fortunately I was able to see 3 tigers, 1 tigress and 4 cubs. Bandhavgarh national park is small in size as compared to other national parks, so chances of seeing a Tiger are high. Apart from Tigers, there are other animals to watch.Moreover, one can also do a elephant... More

This is very big jungle and has 3 zones,(Tala, Magadhi, Khitauli). Tala is the most beautiful zone and has many attractions like Shes-shaiya, A Hill and many water bodies. It is also houses most birds in all 3 zones. Tiger sighting was not good in Jan-15 due to a transtion of power going on between Tigers. Tala is worth it... More

Its a great natural treat and you would read a lot about it at various places so I won't go into those details but of-course few tips: 1. Go there to enjoy nature, without expectations (if possible) of the Big Cat glimpse 2. Be very careful while you are booking safari, its very painful and expensive to add/edit names of... More

But after discussing with the staff at the resort we came to know that there is meek chance in Tala zone for a sighting whereas in Maghdhi zone almost... More

Be prepared, it gets very cold in the morning with the open safari jeeps. on the park there are beautiful... More
