Tiger Safari in The Enchanted Land

What could be more enticing than a holiday in an enchanted land far removed from the madding crowd. Bandhavgarh is a land frozen back in the time whence man roamed in the wilderness among the animals and birds. The bespoke destination is a saga of advent of humans and the evolution.

Even till this day the numerous waterbodies appear like the premodial soup that gave birth to life forms. The mountains mysterious and inaccessible as always are the domain of the spirits of yore in the realm of the tiger. The snaking rivulets are born in the womb of the mountains and slide down to form marshy grasslands in the valleys and the plains.
