Birds and Wildlife of Central Highlands

bird in indian wild

This tour takes us on a wild journey through Jungles of central highlands that have been vividly described by Rudyard Kipling in "Jungle Book". Home to India's finest National Parks - Kanha and Bandavgarh. Rated the best for Tiger spotting world over. The forests of Central India are the few known refuges for several globally endangered and range restricted species like the Malabar Pied Hornbill, Spotted Grey Creeper, White Bellied Minivet and Green Munia.

Kanha National Park

The horse shoe shaped Kanha valley has some times been called the N'Gorongoro of India. Herds of the axis deer, the blackbuck, the wild pig and occasionally the gaur (Indian Bison) throng the central parkland. With its flourishing herds and relatively tolerant predators, Kanha offers almost unrivaled scope to a keen photographer.

Bandhavgarh National Park

Located in the Vindhya mountains, it is a beautiful park with woodlands, rocky hills and grassland valleys. Plenty to see in this small park (168 Sq miles) set around a historic site, with carvings, temples and an ancient fort. It has the highest concentration of tigers in a zone, who are vehicle friendly.

Morning game drive. Drive to Bandhavgarh (250 Kms, 5-6 hours). Bandhavgarh (pronounced Bandogarh) is not very far from Rewa, famous as the original home of the (albino) white tiger, but now found only in zoos. Before becoming National Park in 1968, it was the game reserve of the Maharajas of Rewa. Though it involves quite a journey one might be rewarded with sighting one of the few tigers left in wild. Bandhavgarh Park is set in extremely rugged terrain with many hills. The marshes which used to be perennial now support a vast grassland savannah. There are also interesting cave shrines scattered around the park, with Brahmi inscriptions dating from the 1st century BC. One can visit the archaeological remains of a fort believed to be 2000 years old. Overnight at Kings Lodge
