Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, Madhya Pradesh

Been there recently?

Located on the eastern end of the Satpura range of hills and forests, Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve is known to have the maximum tiger density. Many tigers have died in the last 20 years, and 50% of these deaths were due to poaching, electrocution, vehicle accidents, and revenge by villagers. But to the credit of the park officials and guards, the tiger population has risen, and the number of unnatural deaths has reduced. The tiger population stands at around an impressive tally of 52 (estimated) as of 2021. The place has historic rumblings evident from the ruined fort seen within the park. Recent excavations have unearthed elements that prove human habitation from 2000 years ago. Bandhavgarh was ruled successively for over a century by different dynasties, and the fort stands as a proof of the glorious past. Declared a National Park in 1968, it became a Tiger Reserve in 1993, and the core area is around 700 square kilometres. It is often said that ‘at other tiger reserves, if you are lucky, you’ll spot a tiger, but at Bandhavgarh, if you do not spot a tiger, you are unlucky’. That’s the fame of Bandhavgarh and its tiger density.
