Although seeing a tiger is rare, Bandhavgarh National Park is known for its tiger sightings and it wouldn’t be unusual to spot one here. The Park is situated within the Madhya Pradesh region in Central Northern India and although a little out of the way it is fairly simple to get to. A flight from Delhi to Jabalpur takes roughly 2 hours which is followed by a 4 hour drive to the park; the journey is worth it and a must if you want to see these beautiful animals in the wild. Bandhavgarh is a small but wildlife-rich and picturesque park and is a great location for an Indian tiger safari. The ruins of Bandhavgarh Fort dominate the 800m high central plateau that look out over the rocky hilltops, monsoon and sal forests of the park that are home to a variety of fauna and flora including approximately 90 tigers, 25 leopards, chital, sambar, langur monkeys, jackals and a number of birds including the crested serpent eagle, white-eyed buzzard and parakeets! Bandhavgarh National Park is one of the newer members of Project Tiger but its history is believed by some to date back as far as the 1st century BC; with its numerous cave systems and ancient ruins, discoveries are still being made today! The park has the highest density of tigers in India and is one of the smallest parks.
THERE ARE ESTIMATED TO BE ONE TIGER TO EVERY 4KM, WHICH MAKES YOUR CHANCES OF SPOTTING THEM QUITE HIGH!
