Bandhavgarh holds the record number of tigers in India which is the maximum among all the national parks in the country. Though reaching here is a bit difficult but once you get in you are able to spot a maximum number of tigers in their regular habitat.
800 mt high cliffs surround the rocky hill territory and green valley of the Bandhavgarh National Park. Except for tigers, you are able to spot a huge variety of wildlife such as deer, bears, jackals, leopards, deer, etc.

How to reach Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve?
By air: you can take a direct flight from Delhi to Jabalpur. Then travel by road through a car towards Bandhavgarh. It’s almost 4-5 hours journey.
By train: Bandhavgarh is connected by train with almost every major city of India. The nearest railway station is Umaria, which is around 45 minutes away from Bandhavgarh. The second closest railway station of Bandhavgarh in Katni and it is almost 2.5 hours away.

When to reach: Obviously, March-April is the best time to visit this tiger reserve. At this time, the temperature remains higher and tigers come out of their den to find some watering hole or grass zone for them. You may also target May-June time but the weather remains extremely hot then. December – January remains the peak season. So, a lot of bookings are made at this time and the weather remains cold too.

Safari timings – Safaris are available twice daily – early in the morning or in the evening. Both times are good to spot animals.
Note:
1) The core area of the park remains closed during July-September due to monsoon.
2) Safaris are available on Wednesday afternoons, Diwali and Holi.
3) The buffer zone of the park remains open all through the year.

Zones to enter park: Bandhavgarh National Park has three main zones to enter its core area which are – Tala, Magdhi, and Khitauli. Tala is the major entry zone here where you can see the fort of Bandhavgarh. Magadhi is at its next-door. It is counted as an excellent one to watch tigers. Khitauli stays apart and lies on the other side of the road. It is a beautiful scenery zone and good for bird-watching
Except for these three, three buffer zones were also introduced 4 years back to reduce the crowd of tourists in the core zones. These buffer zones – Dhamokhar, Panpatha, and Johila are spread over Katni and Umaria districts.
Jeep safaris are available in all these 6 zones.

Safari booking – Either you can book any Bandhavgarh tour package where your travel guide will look after every booking, or visit the website of the MP forest department to gain the safari permits online.
It is advisable to book at least 3 months prior as the number of safaris are limited and sell out fast.
