LETS GO TRAVEL
Overview

This tour will take you to two of India’s most famous wildlife sanctuaries and give you the opportunity to see the
majestic Royal Bengal Tiger.

The Kanha National Park has lush sal and bamboo forests, grassy meadows and deep ravines, reminiscent of
Rudyard Kipling’s 'Jungle Book' which was set in one of the national parks of Madhya Pradesh. True to the picture
that is conjured up by that description, the Park is a treasure trove of flora and fauna. Alert barasingha deer, noisy
monkeys, stealthy leopards and the mighty tiger – they are all there in the Kanha National Park!

The Bandhavgarh National Park is home to the largest population of tigers in the world. The national animal of India,
the Royal Bengal Tiger that lives in the park is protected under the Government of India funded Project Tiger. This
fragile ecology also supports nilgai, wild boar, jackals, porcupines and many species of birds.

This tour is a not-to-be-missed for nature lovers and an excellent introduction to India’s amazing wildlife and natural
beauty for others.
