This wildlife special - tiger spotting tour designed by the Camp People takes you to the Bandhavgarh jungles which boasts of one of the highest densities of Tiger population in India.
Day 01: New Delhi / Bandhavgarh
Transfer to the railway station to board the overnight train to Umaria. Over night in the air-conditioned saloon.
Day 02: Arrival Bandhavgarh
In the morning you will be received at the Umaria train station & transferred to the Bandhavgarh. On arrival check in to your Jungle Lodge.
Bandhavgarh lies in the heart of Madhya Pradesh- traditional tiger country. This is where Rudyard Kipling found inspiration for his famous Jungle Book (remember Mowgli?), and this is where the tiger still roams- although now protected by dozens of laws, some effective, some not.
Post lunch move out to take a Jeep Safari to watch the Royal Bengal Tiger in its natural habitats. You can also enjoy a good wild photography on your 3 hour-long trip to Bandhavgarh National Park.
Evening bonfire & dinner in the picturesque locales of the Jungle Lodge.
Overnight stay in the resort
Once the hunting preserve of the Maharajas of Rewa, where an alarming number of tigers were hunted down in pre-independence India, Bandhavgarh was mercifully declared a National Park in 1968. Today, the Bandhavgarh National Park is a compact reserve (448 sq. km) of sal trees, bamboo thickets and grasslands, teeming with birds
Located in the Vindhya Hills, Bandhavgarh in Madhya Pradesh encompasses 32 hills covered with a mixed forest of sal, dhobin and saga and large stretches of grasslands with bamboo groves. Dominated by a large fort said to have been built by Lord Rama the hero of the Indian epic Ramayana, Bandhavgarh is famous for its tigers.
The park is now home to 22 species of wildlife, including the regal gaur', umpteen varieties of deer, and carnivores such as the striped hyena, jungle cat and sloth bear and over 250 species of birds. Within the park itself is the Bandhavgarh Fort, now in ruins and largely overrun by the surrounding forest.
Although Bandhavgarh is in the area where the famous white tigers of Rewa were first found, don't expect to see any of the exotic beauties around. What you will see, however, is an amazing diversity of flora and fauna which can certainly make a trip to this wildlife preserve utterly worthwhile.
In morning move out for a wildlife safari to take the Royal Bengal Tiger one on one. After a leisurely lunch again move out for an elephant safari to explore what you missed in the first one. Rest of the time at leisure.
Day 04: Bandhavgarh
Take an elephant safari for wildlife viewing. Relax for a while. Evening safari in the National Park. Over night at your jungle resort.
Day 05: Bandhavgarh / New Delhi :Over night in the train
Early morning elephant safari in the park. After a leisurely lunch we board a train for New Delhi from Umaria train station. Over night in the air-conditioned compartment.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
