Madhya Pradesh — the “heart of India” — is known for its wildlife living in its verdant forests, roaming through the mighty mountain ranges, and nesting on the shores of its meandering rivers. Our focus is on Kanha, Bandhavgarh, and Satpura National Parks.
Bandhavgarh National Park has a dense tiger population and rugged Satpura National Park features a diverse array of mammals and birds such as leopards, sambars, and chitals. Kanha, Madhya Pradesh’s largest national park, has a vast expanse of grasslands and forest where tigers, jackals, and wild pigs can be spotted. For the best opportunities to see wildlife in its natural habitat, we explore these parks by waking before dawn for early-morning Jeep safaris, scouting from a boat, and keeping our eyes open as we walk nature paths.
We also visit a local village, watch cow dung patty cakes being made for fuel, visit kitchen gardens, observe work in the fields, marvel at the local temple, and spend time learning how the indigenous communities here harmonize their lives with nature.
The trip, hosted by PUREQUEST ADVENTURES, is proud to have Prabhat Verma leading this tour. Prabat brings with him his vast experience selling Wildlife Tourism in India. He is an expert in spotting and identifying the wildlife & birds as well as a passionate wildlife photographer.
