The day after Delhi we had an early morning flight to Jabalpur in Madya Pradesh and from there we were driven up to Bandhavgarh. It is said that Bandhavgarh together with Ranthambore has the best chances for tiger sightings in India. So with seven days and 14 game drives we were almost guaranteed to see tigers, and we did, we did see 9 different tiger here!
Bandhavgarh National Park is located on the Vindhyan mountain ranges of central India and this gives the park pretty big differences in landscape. From open grass lands to dense forest on hilly areas Bandhavgarh is offering a wide range of photo opportunities.

Our accomodation while staying in Bandhavgarh was at the Tiger Lagoon, a really good place. Not is it only good food and good rooms but also right by the lodge there is a water hole, so the surrounding areas offers a pretty decent birdlife. This is perfect so you have something to do while spending time between the morning and afternoon game drives.
