Top Cat Tryst: Bandhavgarh Wildlife Photography Tour
At the heart of Wild India, Bandhavgarh has come to be not merely one of the best havens of the national animal, but a very byword for it. It is the tiger capital of the world. Bandhavgarh, which is also an archaeological goldmine, is home for jackals, jungle cats and many different birds, too. But the park's biggest draw is the unparalleled opportunity it offers to observe tiger behavior for sustained periods of time. Tracking the known individuals by territory and movement, the extraordinarily skilled guides and drivers yield intimate photographic opportunities and unique insights into the private world of the enigmatic big cat, when, adorned by resplendent winter coats, they look their stunning best.
