Bandhavgarh National Park
Situated in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, Bandhavgarh National Park is one of India's most renowned tiger reserves. Nestled among the picturesque Vindhya and Satpura hills, it is undoubtedly one of India’s most beautiful national parks. The dramatic landscape features tropical forests and woodlands, and steep rocky hills with flat grasslands in the valleys below. Bandhavgarh supports one of the highest densities of tigers on the subcontinent. Its hilly open terrain includes many large grassland meadows that offer good chances of sightings. The park is also home to a large variety of mammals: leopard, chital (spotted deer - below left), sambar deer, nilgai (blue bull), wild boar, chinkara, sloth bear, rhesus macaque, grey langur, hyena, porcupine, jackal, fox and wild dog.
