OPENING FROM 15 JUNE, 2022
The sun rises over the rocky hill slopes and slants through the leaves of the tall Sal forest. Thick bamboo groves flourish as rivulets rush through the park, making Bandhavgarh one of the prettiest forests in India. Situated in Madhya Pradesh, Bandhavgarh is a key tiger habitat in the jungles of Central India. Located in the midst of the Vindhya range, the park is surrounded by steep cliffs and rocky hill slopes.
Wake up to a chorus of birdsong and head out on a thrilling game drive into prime tiger territory. The forest teems with a variety of flora and fauna. From felines to wild dogs, herds of wild elephants, black-faced langur, Sambhar, barking deer, Barasingha (swamp deer), and the Gaur (Indian Bison) are just a few of the animals that you’re likely to observe in their natural habitat. The park is named for Bandhavgarh Hill which towers over it, and an ancient fortress which lies at its peak. Bandhav means brother and Garh means fort. According to an ancient legend, Lord ‘Rama’ gifted this fort to his brother ‘Lakshman’, for the pivotal role that Lakshman played in the battle of Lanka.
