Zone 2 was very good when we visited in terms of frequency of sightings. Zone 1 was superb in terms of quality of sighting.(close quarter) Zone 1( Tala) is more expensive. Zone 2 (magdhi) is cheaper as its a shorter route. Individual safari official rate is 950 for Zone 2 and 1200 for zone 1. However, often hotels charge very... More

Bandhavgarh was our third park we visited on our trip to India and it did not disappoint. It was absolutely fantastic. We saw one tigress and two leopards whilst there along with all the other amazing wildlife. The other parts of the park with the Vishnu statue and the stables where the horses were kept during the days of the... More

Going to Bandhavgarh Park was quite the experience, and one I hope to do again!. We saw 10 different tigers in our 4 days there--tigers crossing the road, tigers playing, and tigers at the watering holes. To see them in the wild is heart-stopping. This photo safari was different than others I've been on. We had our tour guide, plus... More

Though we did see a lot of animals like Spotted deers, wild Boars, Langoors. Neelghai, Sambhars, Peacocks etc., we were disappointed not to see any Tigers or Leopords. We had planned this trip mainly to see the tigers and Leopords and we could not see them. The Peacoks here, were very big. May be they were about 8-9 feet in... More

I booked Bandhavgarh Safari through Mr. Teerath Singh (08889469120). Three Safari in Tala Gate and One in Magdhi Gate. It was a great experience. Everything was well planned. We stayed at Tigerden Resort which was also arranged by Mr. Singh. Thank you once again Mr. Teerath Singh.

This is a great park and deservedly has a great reputation for tiger sightings. If you get the opportunity to explore the outer reaches of the park this is definitely worth it as there are some beautiful areas little visited because they are a fair drive from the park gates. A nice change to be on your own in the... More

A friend and I visited Bandhavgarh National Park in February 2015 with our very knowledgeable guides and hosts, Butch Lama and Susi Allison of Wild India LLC. We had traveled with them from Delhi to the Little Rann of Kutch, Keoladeo National Park and then finished our nearly three-week trip to India at Bandhavgarh. While we were in Bandhavgarh, we...

The density of tigers is highest in Bandhavgarh National park and hence the probability of finding them here is higher. We spotted Bagera- one of the biggest makes in this park. Summer is a good season to spot the tigers as they visit the ponds to have water.
