Bandhavgarh National Park

Set amidst the Vindhyan Mountain range in Madhya Pradesh, the Bandhavgarh National Park is home to the famous White Tigers of Rewa. The prominent ones captured in the Park include the legendary White Tiger called Mohan, who supposedly fathered several offspring found in zoos the world over.


The park was a former hunting reserve of the royal family of Rewa where once Maharajah Venkat Raman Singh made his illustrious career out of hunting 111 tigers. Bandhavgarh was declared a national park in 1968. The landscape is a unique mixture of steep and rocky hills, with flat tops and level grasslands in the valleys below. The vegetation found within the Park is moist deciduous forest with fine Sal trees and stretches of bamboo.


Today, Bandhavgarh Wildlife Sanctuary is known for having one of the densest populations of Tigers in the country. Prominent among other wild animals are Nilgai, Chital, Chinkara, Gaur, Sloth Bears and Wild Boar along with some 250 species of birds. It is one of the best places to witness the Tiger in action with the highest density of tiger population for any wildlife park in the country.
