Set amongst Vindhya Hills, Bandhavgarh is one of India's premier areas for Tigers.

Experience the excitement of tracking the Big Cat.. In addition, Bandhavgarh is home to a plethora of bird species, including the lesser adjutant-stork, brown fish owl, blue bearded Bee-eater, Malabar pied hornbill, white-rumped vulture, and many more.

The ruins of the ancient fort from which this park derives its name provides a stunning backdrop to this erstwhile hunting preserve of the Maharaja of Rewa.
