HolidayIQ Reviewer Jyoti Sahu shares “Worth visiting; I visited the National Park in October and took the morning safari. The gypsy charges a certain fee but it is worth it. As you enter the park you can see variety of flora and fauna. A bird watcher might also love it during winters when they start migrating to these parts. Everything apart, people visit this place to spot the Royal Bengal tiger and once you do spot it, you will love the place even more. The number of tigers is decent and there is a 90 % chance of spotting.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sumit Pilankar adds “Jungle is well conserved. There are many different ranges in the jungle. We had been to Jhirna as that was the only one open at that time. I have heard that Bijrani and Dhikala (mid to core jungle) are better. Dhikala even has night stay available, which makes chances of tiger spotting even better.. Anyways its dependent on your luck, if luck favors you may even end up spotting the tiger in the reserve forest near your hotel while just being on a trail.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aniket Sharma says “My first ever visit Sariska Tiger Reserve was entirely different from Ranthambore Tiger Reserve even in terms of flora, fauna & surrounding around. After all, Bhagani being Machali's daughter (& current reigning queen Krishna's sister) was the first tigress to be translocated to STR in 2008-09 for the betterment of species & the reserve. Though, we couldn't see ST2(tiger) after chasing all those pug marks & waiting near her den, while she had gone to bring along her litter all this time. But still, the safari seemed a short one where much more could have been explored if the guide & canter drivers would have been supportive like that of RTR. It was good to know that only 20-30% of the reserve is open for tourists for the sake of tiger population with least human intervention & poaching. After all, species is more important than the sightings !! Long Live the race of National Animal!” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Abhinav Anand says, “Beautiful park; This is a very special tiger park in South India which borders the Kabini River on one end and the coffee plantations of Coorg on the other. It merges into the evergreen forests of Wayanad once you cross in Kerala. The elephant, leopard and tiger populations are very healthy which signifies the strength of the ecosystem. This park is truly a gem of southRead Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Husain Shabbir adds, “Tiger lovers heaven; One of the best places to spot tigers in the wild in India. The reason is mainly that of the density of tigers in the region. Bandhavgarh has one of the highest density of tigers in India. The guides are extremely well-trained and have great knowledge of the area in and around the National Park. Beautiful landscape and a number of wild animals to spot.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Shawn Wayne shares, “A little too expensive safari; Bandhavgarh is known for very good tiger sightings and this fact makes thousands of travelers come here for jeep safaris. The safari permits are issued by the government and are probably the most expensive safari permits in India. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Smriti Das shares, “Tale of Sundarbans; Our trip was for three days at Sundarbans National Park which is located at the southeastern tip of the 24 Parganas district in West Bengal. It is one of the largest reserves for the Bengal tiger and also a home to a variety of bird, reptile and invertebrate species. Sundarbans got its name from one of the mangrove plants known as Sundari. The Sundarbans are a part of the world's largest delta formed by the rivers Ganga, Brahmaputra, and Meghna. The beauty of delta belt is wonderful. Sundarbans forest area covering approx 4200+ square kilometer in India and tiger reserve area is approx 2585 square kilometer in India. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Apurva Dalal says, “The best place to spot tiger; Sharing my first ever wildlife safari experience at Rathambore. A great place to see the tiger in its natural habitat. Ranthambore Tiger Sanctuary, Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan is the best place to spot the tiger. There are 2 ways to safari, firstly is the gypsy, my style where you are near to earth & can experience as if being a part of the jungle & roaming to spot different wild animals. Second is a bit safer, in canter where you are higher to ground with at least 21 others accompanied. Well, I had experienced both in my 4 days stay at Sawai Madhopur. But the most thrilling was my 5th Safari on my last day in Sawai Madhopur. Morning Safari where we spotted a tiger climbing uphill and walking his way just 10-15 feet away from our gypsy, marking his territory by leaving his scent on the tree & then resting in shade.” Read Full Review
