Wild Tiger Safari in MP India

Wild Tiger Safari in MP India

Tiger Tourism Destinations

Sighting big cats for me is a passion, I saw my first tigress in Kanha and a male tiger in Bandhavgarh National Park both in Central India or Madhya Pradesh. This was in the seventies and these wildlife destinations had come under the umbrella of protected areas.


The conservation efforts has started to deliver results and the big cats were flourishing in the reserves. I caught the tiger bug and subsequently more trips where organised. My first trip to Corbett did not fetch the tiger but any way it is one of the finest tiger reserve in country for birding and animal watching.


I began visiting Kanha and Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve regularly for birding and wildlife photography. In the seventies there were hardly any tourists and we could spend lot of time in the reserve due to long timings and enjoyed many elephant rides. We spent lot of time with the forest department people who used to spend most of their time in isolation.

Long time on elephant back gave us ample opportunity to capture good images using a simple camera. In the eighties the tourists started arriving in larger numbers. We could sense alienation from the regulars we

The prime purpose of visits to these reserves was tiger safari for trekking tigers. The famous Bandhavgarh NP and Kanha have the largest number of visitors followed by Pench Tiger Reserve.

The reserve have much more to offer besides fabulous tiger sightings. The sightings of wild animals on jeep safaris are superb and thrilling. The parks are the best for birding in India. The best Tiger Reserve are organised in winters. The bird tours to Kanha and Pench are also organised by the MP tour operators.

Best season is anytime the parks are open, but winter suits the visitors the most. For wildlife photographers post winter period offers best game sightings and lot of natural light in the dense canopy.
