If you're planning a wildlife adventure in Madhya Pradesh, there's some important news to be aware of: the core zones of six tiger reserves—Bandhavgarh, Kanha, Pench, Satpura, Panna, and Sanjay-Dubri—are closing to tourists until October 1, as per reports. While this seasonal closure might alter your plans, it plays a crucial role in preserving these parks' natural beauty and safety.

The monsoon season is a critical period for tigers. It's their time to mate and raise their young; they need solitude, suggest reports. Disturbances can make them aggressive and disrupt their natural behaviours. By closing the core zones, park authorities provide these tigers with the undisturbed environment they need for a healthy population and effective conservation efforts.
