In the heartland of India lies the magical land that is Bandhavgarh National Park. Named after the Bandhavgarh Fort that now stands inside the park, Bandhavgarh National Park has one of the highest tiger densities in India. Originally the hunting ground for the Maharaja of Rewa, the tiger reserve was declared a national park in 1968. Apart from tigers, the park also boasts a healthy population of leopards, sloth bears, and other mammals, and over 250 species of birds. Besides Tigers, the park also plays host to a plethora of other animal species including Northern Plains Langur, Sambar, Nilgai, Wild Boar, and Indian Muntjac to name a few. October to March is the best time to visit the park as the weather is pleasant for wildlife viewing.
