If you want to enjoy the forest and wildlife you must visit Bandhavgarh Tiger reserve.

Tiger sightings are a matter of luck but you will definitely love the forest and the wild nature of the animals. It was great to see the animals free and out of the cages.

The wildlife is kept under protection and the forest department is very aware about the safety of the animals. Poaching is completely prohibited. The forest guards are aware about animal protection and the maintenance of the trees as well.

Overall you will definitely enjoy the forest and the wildlife here.

Outstanding naturalists make tiger viewing very likely, although nothing is ever guaranteed. Situated in Madhya Pradesh, and accessed by train to Umaria only 45 kilometres away, Bandhavgarh is the smallest of three parks in the region.

Covering an area of 105 square kilometres, it is bordered by a small village where the lodges and camps are located.

when u visit the park go with the intention to see the nature and the forest and the many creatures it encompasses not just for the tiger… if u see a tiger good but seeing the other natural habitats of the area is also exciting…
thankfully all my guide, naturalist and driver were amazing and had the complete idea of the forest.
1. October and November best weather conditions not too cold neither hot
2. comfortable and mostly covered clothes to save from insects and mosquitoes
3. can be too tedious for toddlers
4. bumpy drive (although u can ask ur driver to drive u accordingly)

We could see the tiger on the main highway road outside the jungle area so be positive and vigilant.
Opening and closing day of the park are little unorganised otherwise forest management is good.
Follow the forest rules to the bones so u will be safe.
Must visit

This is 200 km away from my home and I always like to go there by bike I have a simple words for this place that I like riding on every weekend and this is very good place for weekoff.

I have been there free Times but never seen any tiger in any buffer or core zone but I recommend this place for peace and facilities also people's are very nice there.

Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve is in district Umariya in MP. It is only 36 kms from umariya from railway station. From jabalpur it is 200 kms from airport. You have to go there by road if you want to travel by train so only umariya is the nearest station. From katni railway station it is about 100 kms .
Before 1972 this park was declared a national park but in 1993 it was declared as a bandhavgarh tiger reserve.Sita and Charger are credited with raising most of the children in Bandhavgarh.These cubs were the precious gifts of nature to the bandhavgarh forest.
This forest is under surveillance of MP forest department.

At that time the villagers cooperated a lot and vacated their homes and relocated themselves outside the forest at the behest of the government to preserve the wildlife. Today most of these villagers are either guides or drivers of Gypsy safaris in this National Park because they are aware of every nook and corner of the jungle. Today the palace of the old king is present. It is said that he had shifted to Rewa. After his departure, only lions rule the entire jungle.

Before coming here, book your hotel online. You can book hotels of many rates, including five-level hotels, according to your budget. Get a permit made online as well, then that permit will be verified before the safari and you will have to take tickets which cost 3000/- for the gypsy and 400/- for the guide.
In this national park there are 2 safaris Magdi and Tala . Forest is completely filled with bamboo trees and saal trees. Very dense forest full of beautiful wildlife . This national park is one of the most amazing park in India full of tigers.
Very thrilling and amazing place to enjoy wild life. Worth visiting place.

Only once in a year ... Free entry on Janmashtami to visit Bandhavadheesh temple on top of the hill situated in core area of tiger reserve. One way 8 km, total 16 km trek passing through abandoned caves temples and numerous murtis scattered in jungle. Route passes through sheshshaiyya and kila gate.

Best place to see tiger and other wild animals. You will easily find here Deer and Monkey in jungle safari, also you will see here different type of birds. You can't get tired after 3 hrs long jungle safari. Overall good experience. You can also enjoy in water Park here. Which is about 10km away from safari ticket counter. Also verity of Resorts also available here in good price..

Great place to spot Tigers. Make sure to book core gates. Also select a good driver.. Guides are by rotation so there is no option.

As it has sand tracks most of the ride is comfortable but lots of dust if there are vehicles in front. Adequately prepare to protect from dust.

One of few parks where you can have a place for breakfast with washrooms which are well maintained.

About 3 years ago 30 wild elephants migrated to this area and now more have come to make it their home.

They say if you are lucky you’ll see the tiger here in Bandhavgarh every time and that’s true, while doing your Tiger Safari at Tala you’ll surely see the tiger. I have even see. The man eater tiger which use to pass through our cottage in the buffer area. Stayed there for almost a year plus … Had an amazing experience while living amongst nature and wildlife. Use to fly over the villages and the forest with my para motor. The national tribe of india the “Baiga” tribesmen lives here. This place has amazing resorts and good connectivity.

Highly recommended for nature and wildlife lovers. Below you can see the pics which I had clicked while flying.

All wildlife lovers must visit. There are three gates- Tala, Magdhi and Khitouli. Tiger sightings are maximum in Magdhi followed by Tala. One must book safaris in advance and beeds to carry ID cards during safari.

This is a magnificent place where you not only experience the beauty of nature but also immerse yourself in the rich history of Baghelkhand.

Could not spot tiger in any of the zones. Just the foot prints. Some deer on the way.

Such a beautiful jungle!! So many varieties of birds , animals and trees. But I would suggest to avoid weekends. It’s crowded and people don’t enjoy jungle but they only want to see a tiger. The driver and guide also make lots of efforts to spot a tiger. The jungle is a must visit place but choose Tala, Magadhi or Khitauli gates only, others are buffer zones and you come across a lot of human beings collecting forest produce like mahu flowers. Overall a good experience.

Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve is good place for short vacation.
You can visit any time but try to go in winter season like from Nov till March and avoid rainy season.
There are many resorts and hotels are there no need for pre-booking you can visit and have a look then you can book your rooms.
I my opinion stay in any resort it will give you ab pleasant vibe.

Coming to the main topic will you get to see the tiger or not.
So my friend it is totally based on your luck , sometime it happens you take a safari ride and you wont get to see the tiger and sometime you can find the tiger even on the main road while going to your resort. Never forget you are in Forest and there is no way that a animal cant come to the place where you are.

Me and my friends found the tiger on the main road in front of our vehicle , adding some of pictures clicked by me.

Thanks Guys !!
