Known to be a tiger specific park, even though you may or may not get lucky to see them here, there are plenty of other birds and animals you can enjoy watching in their natural habitat. The guides are usually frantic in trying to show you the tigers so rush through all routes, but you need to tell them that... More

I have been visiting National Parks last 20 years and this one is probably one of the best managed parks in India. To make it more special my Guide/Friend Mr. Mukesh Burman 09425344631 who arranges my stay, visit to the park and all other requirements takes care of all my needs. I never have to worry while visiting this place... More

Visited Bandhavgarh in early May 2015. Took four safaris in the Tala zone (two morning and two afternoon). Our driver took us everywhere he possibly could, but didn't see any tigers on this visit. Back at our hotel, everyone told us that the young mother tigers in the Tala Zone were still hiding their very young cubs, and things were... More

Best time- May as the amount of water is least and hence sightings are most probable. There are three zones- Tala, Maghadi, and Khitauli Tala is the premier zone and the most scenic with lovely forests, hills, streams and highly variegated vegetation. The best routes for tiger sighting are B&D. A&C are useful as they lead to the ancient buddhist... More

Wow... Spotted 2 tigers within the first hour of the safari. The jungle itself offers serene viewing and the wild animals in their natural habitat add to its beauty. Tigers, Indian Spotted Deers, Wild Boars, Sambals, are some animals who laze around the safari routes in all the the three gates. Also a bird watchers paradise. Suggest the morning safari... More

Having researched this park extensively our expectations were high.. Though accept spotting wildlife is always a challenge. Compared to Panna, Pench and Kanha this was our least favourite, due to all the restrictions designed to make money. The parks has three areas and each area had its own zones. You can't go from one zone to another within an area.... More

Just back from a wonderful wildlife adventure in Tadoba arranged by MP tiger safari. As usual I bugged Shweta, our coordinator, with phones, emails until the last day. But everything was wonderful. Slight hitch about the buffer safari on last day due to last minute change of rules by forest authorities. Also, as soon as Shweta was informed about break... More
