Madhya Pradesh is well known for its legends and culture. But what most tourists don’t know is that it is also the land of the white tiger. The 1200 sq km Bandhavgarh National Park is a tiger reserve, which was once a private hunting reserve for the rulers of Rewa. Nestled amongst the Satpura Hills, it is one of the most scenic national parks in the country, with a perfect mix of rocky terrain, waterlogged grasslands and densely forested valleys. With the most number of tigers per square kilometre in the country, spotting a tiger from a 4-wheel drive is almost easy. However, the most effective safaris are the Elephant Safaris. Equipped with walkie-talkies, the Mahouts know the whereabouts of the tigers and are easily able to lead the surefooted elephants up steep rocky hillsides and down marshy riverbeds. At Bandhavgarh, you’ll also find Leopards, Jackals, Jungle Cats, Wild Boars, Sloth Bears, Nilghais, Chinkaras, Sambhars and a large variety of migratory and resident birds.
