Tracking Bengal Tiger at Bandhavgarh National Park

Tiger safari at Bandhavgarh National Park, India toursBandhavgarh, Kanha National Park, Pench and the Panna National Parks are the finest wildlife reserves that abound with a variety of species. Bandhavgarh has one of the densest populations of Tigers in India. The National Park was only incorporated into Project Tiger in 1994 but is certainly among the top three when it comes to chances of encountering this magnificent predator. While having much in common with Kanha, the forests being largely Sal and bamboo, the most striking difference is the huge bluff topped by the old fort of the Maharajahs of Rewa dominating the whole area.
The steep cliffs provide nesting habitat for Long-billed Vultures and the local Shahin race of the Peregrine Falcon. Encounters with mammals are frequent. Herbivores and monkeys would be hard to avoid. Following up their alarm calls is often the best way of tracking down the predators, which may be a Leopard, Tiger, or even a pack of Dhole (Red Dogs). Among Bandhavgarh’s 250+ bird species the Lesser Adjutant, Brown Fish Owl and Mottled Wood Owl are perhaps more easily seen here.
