Tiger Photography in Bandhavgarh



The royalty of India has frequented this national park, and there is a reason for it. Known as the hub for Royal Bengal tigers, Bandhavgarh National Park is considered one of the best locations for tiger photography. The national park consists of mixed vegetation ranging from tall grasslands and bamboo to thick Sal forests making it the perfect habitat for a variety of animals and birds. Due to its varied topography, Bandhavgarh national park provides ample opportunity to spot the majestic Indian tiger and some rarely seen animals like leopards and sloth bears.

Areas like Ghoda Demon and the upper lying areas in Tala receive divine light early in the morning and evening and it is a dream to see and shoot a tiger in that scenario. The water bodies of the park are a perfect playground for tiger cubs in the warm summer months and some of the best action images of tigers have been taken in these waters.
