Explore Bandhavgarh National Park
Bandhavgarh National Park, located in Central India, is a jungle like you’ve never experienced before! Stretching over 437 Sq. Kilometers with a core area of 105 Sq. Kilometers, this dense forest, once the hunting preserve of the Maharaja of Rewa, is known to the world as the home of the Big Cats. Over 90 Bengal tigers reign over this area making it the most densely populated tiger abode in the entire subcontinent. Tigress ‘Sita’, of National Geographic fame, is one of the many celebrity cats from this jungle.

IT IS BEST KNOWN AS THE ABODE OF THE TIGER

Bandhavgarh National Park is prime tiger country. With the largest density of Bengal tigers in the world, there’s no better place to see this big cat in the wild. But apart from tiger sightings, the national park has some striking sites including an abandoned Bandhavgarh fort, ancient caves and a reclining moss covered statue of Lord Vishnu in the core area. According to the local lore, Bandhavgarh fort, which is located in the park, is said to have been gifted by Lord Rama to his younger brother Lakshmana. Once the hunting ground of the erstwhile maharajas of Rewa, the area was declared a national park in 1968. The six zones of the park, namely, Tala, Magahdi, Panpatha, Khitauli, Dhamokar and Johila each offer something special. While Tala and Maghdi are known for tigers, Panpatha, Dhamokar and Johila are known for dhole (wild dog) sightings along with tigers & other wildlife and Khitauli for spotting leopards and sloth bears. The national park is also known as the abode of white tigers. While no wild white tiger sightings have been reported over the last 50 years, the only ones before that were seen in Bandhavgarh.
