Bandhavgargh National Park has some of the best tiger-viewing in India. The combination of thick jungle and open grass plains give a diverse game viewing experience, with not only for tiger, but leopard, jungle cat, sloth bear and hyena (although you'll be lucky to see all of these!). Game viewing is generally by vehicle but there are some opportunities to take an elephant back safari.
Situated in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, Bandhavgarh National Park is a 448 km2 renowned tiger reserve. Nestled among the picturesque Vindhya and Satpura ranges, this is one of India’s most beautiful National Parks. The dramatic landscape of a Bandhavgarh safari features tropical forests and woodlands, and steep rocky hills with flat grasslands in the valleys below. An ancient 2000 year old fort, a 10th century statue of Lord Vishnu and the combination of dense jungle and grasslands make a Bandhavgarh Safari one of the most extraordinary in India.

Bandhavgarh supports one of the highest densities of tiger populations in India. Its hilly, open terrain includes many large grassland meadows that offer a good chances of sighting. The density of its big cat population has made Bandhavgarh Tiger Safaris world famous and a wonderful addition to an Indian Honeymoon. The Park is also home to a large variety of other mammals, including leopard, chital (spotted deer), Sambar deer, nilgai, wild boar, chinkara, sloth bear, rhesus macaque, grey langur, jungle cat, hyena, porcupine, jackal, fox, and wild dog.
