Tiger, Bandhavgarh National Park Amidst the ranges of Vindhya hills in the district of Sahdol lies the dense forest of Bandhavgarh National Park. It consists of a core area of 105 sq km and a buffer area of approximately 400 sq km. The topography varies between steep ridges, undulating, forest and open meadows. This park is the favorite haunt for Royal Bengal Tiger of the region. Bandhavgarh was notified as a National Park in 1968 and included in the famous Project Tiger in 1993. The density of the Tiger population at Bandhavgarh is the highest known in India. Other inhabitants of the park includes Leopards, Wild dogs or Dholes, Sloth Bears, Rhesus Macaques, Sambar, Chital, Indian Muntjac, Chausingha (4-horned antelope) among many others.

Prior to becoming a National park, the forest around Bandhavgarh had long been maintained as a Shikargah (game preserve) of the Maharajahs of Rewa. Hunting was the only threat to animal - otherwise the wildlife was relatively well-protected. Its not only tiger sighting at Bandavgarh, but the natural and archaeological wonder that awaits the visitors is totally unexpected and beyond imagination.
