One of the best places to spot a tiger in the wild is in one of Madhya
One of the best places to spot a tiger in the wild is in one of MadhyaPradesh’s national parks, which have a healthy population of around 250 animals. As soon as tourists enter the park, tiger-sighting often becomes a scene of suspense and chase. While the tiger is an apex predator, tourists obsessed with tiger-spotting sometimes miss out on the rest of jungle and its ecosystem. Naturalists and safari guides try to make the entire forest come alive for visitors. They point out trees like sal, saja, kulu, banyan, bamboo, jamun and tell you interesting facts about the park. Bandhavgarh, Kanha, and Pench all have their own unique character. Beyond the tiger, birds, other animals, butterflies, insects, different trees and plants, and a variety of landscapes, are all worth exploring. Birds are abundant in these parks and visitors can expect to see at least a few, like Indian rollers, ibis, drongos, jungle babblers, orioles, lapwings, cormorants, and woodpeckers. Wild animals like spotted deer, sambar, gaur, sloth bear, jackal, wild boar, langurs are aplenty. Termite mounds, with their extensive system of tunnels and unique ventilation systems, are also an interesting feature of the forest. Any visit to a park in Madhya Pradesh is best enjoyed taking in all its diversity.
