India, although densely populated, hosts a biodiversity comparable to that of the African continent, which, however, is decidedly less “covered” by contemporary documentaries.
The tiger is a powerful, majestic and mysterious animal and one of the most fantastic creations of nature. Having seen him once in his natural habitat, you will never forget this indescribable moment.
Unfortunately, the likelihood of seeing this predator in the wild is extremely low, because since the beginning of the 20th century, the number of tigers in the world has dropped dramatically.
However, in recent years, thanks to efforts to conserve the population, the number of tigers has begun to increase, and India is one of the few countries in the world where they can be seen. There are reserves here that specialize in the conservation of these big cats, so you will have a unique opportunity to see them with your own eyes.
Below are some of the best Indian wild safari destinations to go:
Bandhavgarh National Park, Madhya Pradesh
You can hardly find a place on the planet where it would be easier to see a tiger than in Bandhavgarh Park. It is one of the smallest Indian national parks, but it is also home to the largest population of tigers and is the home of the famous white tiger.
The national park is located in the state of Madhya Pradesh, in the center of northern India. Here on the central plateau, at an altitude of 800 m above sea level, surrounded by rocky hills, monsoon and saline forests, are the ruins of the Bandhavgarh fort.
The number of tigers present in this park is 90. Leopards, Indian sambars and temple monkeys – langurs can also be seen in the park.
Kanha Tiger Sanctuary, Madhya Pradesh
It is one of the largest national parks in India and is located in the state of Madhya Pradesh. This place served one time as the scenery for the filming of the famous “The Jungle Book” by Rudyard Kipling.
In search of tigers, you will cross vast meadows, bamboo forests and streams. Along the way, you can see bison, hyenas, pythons and leopards, as well as barasingha, marsh deer, which are also found in abundance here.
The park is open from mid-October to the end of June. The best time for a safari is from October to April.
Ranthambore National Park, Rajasthan
In Ranthambore National Park, in addition to tigers, you can also see crocodiles, leopards, snakes, sloths and Indian honey badgers. This is one of the largest national parks in northern India, where you can watch Bengal tigers swim in lakes or bask in the sun on green fields.
This park was formed on the territory of a deciduous forest. In addition, here you can see both natural and man-made historical monuments, including the 213-meter high Ranthambore fort, in honor of which the park got its name.
Jim Corbett National Park
The park was opened in 1936 under the name Hailey National Park. Thus, Corbett is the oldest tiger park in the country.
There are fewer chances to see tigers than other parks, but you will have a rare opportunity to see elephants, as this is one of the few national parks in northern India that is considered their home.
Until now, you have only seen these fantastic animals on the screen or in the pages of books. But by contacting Welgrow for tiger safaris in India, you can see tigers in their natural habitat with your own eyes.
