Bandhavgarh Tours


Bandhavgarh remains closed from July to October due to the monsoons, so the best time to visit is November to June. Sightings are maximum in summer due to reduced foliage, and the fact that tigresses with cubs will often be secretive in winter months.

Bandhavgarh is famous for its population of tigers. Apart from tigers, the park is also home to a good population of Leopards, deer (Sambar, Spotted Deer, Muntjac), and Nilgai, as well as many other smaller mammals. Birdwatching is a great experience in Bandhavgarh, with birds like eagles, vultures, Lesser Adjutants, Indian Nuthatch, Black-hooded Oriole, Indian Peafowl, Red Junglefowl, and more calling it home.

A safari permit is required to explore the jungle in the park. These can be booked beforehand by your tour operator, or resort. It is advised to carry your original ID document, especially the one used to book your safari permit, in case checking is required.
