India has over one hundred national parks, created not only to maintain India’s indigenous flora and habitat, but also to protect her extensive wildlife – much of which is now under serious threat of extinction. Ranthambore, located in Rajasthan, has become deservedly popular in recent years. Although not guaranteed, your chances of tiger spotting can be higher here than elsewhere – as can tourist numbers. Bandhavgarh National Park also has a relatively large tiger population, as well as a large leopard breeding population. Corbett National Park is one of India’s oldest, and its sub-Himalayan topography offers a different experience to the jungle setting of other national parks. Pench, Kanha and Panna National Parks are amongst other popular parks listed below.
