We traveled to Bandhavgarh after having a stint at Kanha without much luck. Boarded in the sprawling White Tiger Forest Resort at Tala. Our morning safari booking was for Tala zone. 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

National park is famous for tigers as most others....but go for the experience and without expectations. we were not the lucky ones...to have sighted the tigers...closest we came to the tiger was the call of langur, paw marks and droppings. Be prepared, it gets very cold in the morning with the open safari jeeps. on the park there are beautiful... More

You get 4 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the afternoon. Small jeeps, a professional experience. All the opposite to Ranthambore park.

So... set your expectations NOT to see any tigers. We saw none but saw other wildlife - perhaps you should become a 'tweeter' if not already. We had 2 safaris around the allotted circuit on the park. Random allocation of circuits at time of entry. Sangita - a great 'naturalist' guide from TAJ SAFARIS - Mahua Kothi.

We did three tiger safaris in this park and had two tiger sightings. Our gypsy picked us up at the infinity Bandhavgarh resort (I recommed it!) and drove us to a central meeting point in the village. There, you are assigned a guide and told which section of the park you will visit. On our first (morning) safari, we saw... More

We had four safaris with a total driving time of more than 12 hours. In the third safari we saw a glimpse of one tiger. The fourth safari an actual viewing and another glimpse. With the last glimpse so many open jeeps cars were blocking the road that the tiger had no intention of showing itself. We were told that... More

Very good Jungle Safari but Ridiculous Jungle Safari Booking Procedure. If you have not booked safari online in advance, you have to be in queue from midnight, as the counter opens at 4am for morning safari and if you did not get booking, you still have to remain in queue till 3.30pm for evening safari.

The forests are always alluring. Beautiful landscapes, bamboo trees and all...we spotted tigresses, real healthy royal ones, with cubs.. Plenty of birds, some almost extinct.. peacocks, deer, sambar, jackals. Things they can do are 1. Train their drivers and guides better. Some of them are really good, but u need to get lucky. Better have them all trained. 2. Make... More
