Bandhavgarh is a reserve and a National Park in Central India. It is home to the tiger and many other animals, birds, reptiles and other life forms. It is home to tremendous biodiversity and diverse terrain. BTR is a conservation unit under the Project Tiger program of Indian Government. The main purpose of the program is to conserve the ecosystems as whole albeit the emphasis is on the big cats.
A portion of the park is open for tourism and is visited by a large number of tourists every year. The visitors arrive to see the big cats other enchanting animals and birds. In order to facilitate tourism an infrastructure should be in place which at this destination is complete. Tourism calls for availability of transportation, road networks, accommodations and related facilities.
Bandhavgarh provides organized safari experiences in number of zones for which permit is required. The game rides are on open jeeps and canters which ply on a fixed route in a given zone during fixed hours. The entry of vehicles in tourism zone is limited hence advance permit booking is required.
A large number of hotels and resorts, guest houses and tented accommodation are available for accommodation in the National Park. The accommodations subscribe to various categories from budget properties to luxury and even star properties. It is not difficult to find accommodation in the tiger reserve but during the rush the rooms can be filled up fast. Another aspect that has to be looked into is the availability of choice accommodation. If you delay booking of the rooms you may miss a choice hotel or resort and a preferred suite. This can be a damper on your tiger safari experience.
Another factor that has to be taken into consideration is the tariff which wavers time to time. Hence early reservation of accommodation in Bandhavgarh offers room for bargain. If you book a stay in this destination in haste means paying a high price for the rooms. Usually the seasonal discounts are available but sometimes due to slow down in tourism rates can come down. Tourism at Bandhavgarh is subject to many factors like holiday, seasons and flow of overseas tourists.
The reserve situated Umaria District of Madhya Pradesh in India is reachable for Jabalpur Airport at distance of one hundred seventy kilometers. The park is closed from July to September every year.
