Forests cannot survive without Tigers,nor can Tigers survive without forests.
The tiger saves the forest and the forest saves the tiger. The tiger without a forest gets killed and the forest without a tiger gets destroyed.
So let the forest protect the tiger and the tiger protect the forest.
- From the Mahabharata

Dudhwa is one of India's most magnificent forests. 
Dudhwa regained its lost grandeur as a result of efforts of conservationist Billy Arjan Singh over sixty years.
Dudhwa largely a sal and teak forest is one of the most picturesque jungles of India, covering an area of around 500 sq km in the Terai region of Uttar Pradesh bordering Nepal.
While I find it difficult to compare forests as I think each forest has its own unique beauty and individuality, Dudhwa is by far one of the most pristine forests in our country.
As Dudhwa shares its boundaries with Nepal on one side — I feel this seems to have taken a huge toll on the tiger population here, due to deforestation and agriculture.
While the officials estimate the tiger population at a little over 80 in the region of Dudhwa and the adjoining areas of Kishanpur, the signs in the forest and the movement of animals seems to suggest a much lower number.
Plenty of bird life, peacocks,crocodiles,
Swamp deer ( Barasingha), Barking Deer, Wild Elephants, Wild Boar, and Chitals can be seen. There are Rhinos ,which can be seen only if you take an elephant ride.
Sadly in our visit the Elephant rides were cancelled, due to the wild elephants being in "musth"
To see the elusive Tiger is to be lucky!
But I would say enjoy the forest, it's a quiet beautiful haven!!
I planned my trip to Dudhwa National Park with the help of Liladhar Sonu, Guide and Naturalist.
Sonu knows Dudhwa like the back of his hand. He is very knowledgeable.
In the jungle he is highly alert to all the sights and sounds, which we city dwellers miss!
Once you reach Dudhwa until you leave, Sonu will take very good care of you and your Safaris in the Jungle,and you will enjoy your stay at Dudhwa.

The Dudhwa forest is amazing with its varied flora...the tall sal trees, the wide-leafed teak, bamboo and elephant grass. A drive into the forest early morning and at sunset is magical. You may not get to see the great cat, but small animals and avians are a-plenty.The water bodies teem with water birds, crocodiles and swamp deer.....

The park is nice and the safari was good. Did not see the tiger but saw two rhinos.
Stayed in the UP Ecotourism hut. It was a bad experience considering that the tariff is 3 star. The cottages are new but falling apart.The management was very difficult to contact-very difficult to get their numbers. The whole attitude was sarkari.
Very difficult to get towels and soaps. The food was basic. There seems to be overstaffing with people just sitting around. The staff in the dining room were not clean. Govt. should get out of the hospitality business.
The interpretation centre is good but there should be ceiling fans.

Very Dense Forest with a Lot of Animals Present, Good Roads and Macchans. You Feel as if going through a 5D Movie while on Jeep Safari& Elephant Safari! Very Helpful Staff with Excellent Knowledge. Elephant Safari was a unbelievable Experience! Saw tiger Thrice. Timings of Safaris are great!. the Canteen Near Elephant Bada is Great with warming snacks in the Main jungle. Neat and Clean washrooms available in the Jungle itself.

We visited the park in Mar 19 and did the safaris covering the kishanpur range area. This area is supposed to have maximum sightings. The Sharda river forms one side of the area. We were able to sight a number of birds including peacocks, varieties of deers as well as wild boars, however the tigers eluded us though we were able to see fresh pug marks as well as track a few calls. We used the gypsy provided by the resort and were charged Rs 3000/- per trip for four people. You may get this cheaper if you were to book directly with the park. On the whole a refreshing break. It is definitely a birders paradise and if one is lucky one can even get to sight a tiger. During this time of the month the rhinoceros camp was closed due to non availability of elephants. It is prudent to check on the availability of the elephant ride before planning as this adds further to the sightings that one can have.

This was my fifth tiger sanctuary visit in India and happened to be my first tiger sighting.

My friend took me to this place, booking a Jeep Safari. We had already spent nearly 1 hour and suddenly heard a small noise in swamp, suddenly a big roar shook us all. A large tiger emerged from water and rushed inside the elephant grass.

It was a great experience and I recommend this place to photographers for some lovely sunset shots as well.

Dudhwa is one of the finest Jungles with thick vegetation and well maintained park. We did two Jeep safaris. The morning safari showed us a single bull elephant followed by spotting other wild life. But the best part was reserved for the afternoon safari in Kishan Pur block where we were lucky to spot a fill grown tigress. We were able to see its movement for a good 15 minutes where it walked, sat and moved about in the jungle till it went to the watering hole.
Overall a very successful visit. Those wanting to go must plan in advance and be vary of bookings done through forest department as these may be changed at the last minute due to omnipresent VIP culture in the state.

We enjoyed an early morning safari in the tiger reserve, but were not lucky enough to spot any tigers. We had a wonderful elephant ride though, inside the reserve, and spotted some enormous rhinos. Perhaps the safari timings should be earlier in the morning - they leave after 7 which is probably too late to spot a tiger or bear.

Extremely dense forest in Uttar Pradesh on border with Nepal. I travelled from Lucknow so road till Sitapur is good after that its average.
There are 2 slots of Safari in morning and evening. morning safari comprises of Elephant or jeep safari, elephant safari focuses only on Rihno sighting, by jeep you can only be track.

However there are plenty of tigers in this jungle but you really have to be a very lucky person to see a tiger in this extremely dense jungle.

Forest department rest house is at the entry gate as well as in the middle of the jungle but you have to book it prior to your travel. Hotels are also available in 5 km radius.

Animals that are are more likely to see is Rihno (only if you take elephant safari), tiger, variety of deers, monkeys,different species of birds, crocodile etc.

Open private jeep will cost 1300/-, Rs 450 for guide and 100 Rs per head for entry charges.

If you have enough of time then utilize geep safari in the evening and stay over night in hotel or resthouse and do elephant safari in morning to cover Rihno.
