Best Time to Visit
Bandhavgarh National Park welcomes the tourists every year from October 15 to June 30. Winter is the peak season to visit Bandhavgarh National Park, and October to March are the busy months for the national park. Winter is also the best time if you don’t want to bear summer’s heat. But most of the vegetation is dried from March to May when tiger sighting is relatively easy.
Bandhavgarh Safari Zones
Tala – It is one of the most beautiful and oldest safari zones of Bandhavgarh, and also the most important zone for spotting tigers. You can also visit some of the tourist attractions here like Siddh Baba, Badi Gufa, Chakradhara, 3-Cave Point, and Sita Mandap.
Magadhi (Gate No. 2) – It is full of lush grasslands and dense jungles. It is located in the southeast of Tala zone. Tigers also enter this zone from Magadhi zone. So, the chances of tiger sightings are also high in this zone.
Khitauli (Gate No. 3) – It is located in the west of tiger reserve. Tala and Magadhi zones are located on the right side and Khitauli zone is located on the left side. It is also frequented by tourists for bird-watching.
