Bandhavgarh National Park: The popular wild life sanctuary

Bandhavgarh National Park is one of the popular wild life sanctuaries in India located in the Umaria district of Madhya Pradesh. The national park was declared a national park in 1968 with an area of 105 km² and located at 197 km away north-east of Jabalpur. It boasts to have the highest density of tiger population in the country. Now there are about 46 to 52 tigers one can spot here.

The Elusive White Tiger

The forests of Bandhavgarh are the white tiger jungles. But, no white tigers have been reported from the wild in the last 50 years and less than a dozen have been seen in India in about a hundred years. And yet when white tigers were sighted, it was right here in Bandhavgarh.

In more recent times, once a hunting reserve of the royal family of Rewa, Bandhavgarh was declared a park in 1968. This is also the site where the famous WHITE TIGERS of Rewa were discovered.

Wandering through the Bandhavgarh national park on an Elephant Back, the chances of seeing a tiger are quite good. Among the other wild attractions include Chausingha, Nilgai, Chital, Wild Boar, Chinkara and sometimes a Fox or Jackal.

The visitors can be entered in elephant back apart from the four wheelers in the Bandhavgarh national park.
