Tracking tigers in Bandhavgarh National Park is like living out your every jungle fantasy. You can even stay out all day on safaris at the crack of dawn, afternoon explorations and evening adventures to scout out the exciting nocturnal wildlife. Bandhavgarh, like all of India’s national parks, is divided up into different zones only one of which you can explore on each outing. On a full day safari though you can explore all four zones which is a little more expensive but fantastic. While others must return to their lodges, you can stay out all day traversing the varied terrain stopping for lunch alfresco in the forest.
Of course, the star attraction is the park’s Bengal tigers of which researchers still only know around 8% of their behavioural patterns. Among the huge array of fauna, there are leopard, sloth bears, four species of deer and a multitude of bird life. The topography is riveting; tall sal trees, sloping hills, vast grassland, thick forest – a veritable crash course of all of India’s national parks.
Each animal sighting is as unique as the next but there’s nothing more viscerally impactful than a brisk winter morning when the fog drapes over the trees and you hear the manic cries of Malabar grey hornbills as they swoop over the mist and into the distant hills. Then nothing can prepare you for the flash of auburn hair and the elegant striped skin of a tiger rippling with every powerful step.
