Extension For Satpura

03 Nights / 04 Days

There is something remarkably alluring as one sets foot in the wilderness of the Satpura Tiger Reserve. It is therefore no surprise that in the mid-1800s Captain James Forsyth, an officer in the Bengal Lancers, shared similar sentiments in his book titled ‘The Highlands of Central India’ as he navigated this magnificently biodiverse region on horseback. Spanning over undulating montane mixed deciduous forests, with countless intertwining streams.

Satpura Natinal Park is the largest Tiger reserve of Madhya Pradesh, covering a staggering area of 2100 sq km. It is this geographical culmination that makes it one of the best regions in Central India that harbours a rich avian diversity along with an array of wildlife such as Leopards, Sloth Bears, Wild Dogs, Indian Giant Squirrels and Tigers.

A tiger safari in Satpura Tiger Reserve will definitely satiate the inquisitive widlifer in you.

Tiger Safari with Sanjay Gupta and Nature Safari India.
We just finished the first half of two tiger safari tours in India. The first was on the Banhavgar National Park. Our guide was Sanjay Gupta, who had 25 years of experience in the park and with the tigers. He was wonderful, sharing his experience and knowledge throughout our three full days together. He was definitely a highlight of our trip, as a great guide makes for a great experience, whether you see tigers or not! And we did see tigers...
