HolidayIQ Reviewer arhum jain says, “I had a joyful safari with my family and enjoyed it a lot with my whole family as it was the first time we travelled to this destination. We missed spotting tigers but it will still remain a memorable trip for me and my family. The car in which we travelled was awesome and the driver and the guide were so intelligent and knew all the areas with the possibility of spotting tigers. Yes, we still missed spotting a tiger, but yes, we heard them roaring. The guide told us that two tigers were engaging in something personal. It was a really awesome view from there. I have never seen this before and I clicked many photos.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Partha says, “The Forest Department is now rehabilitating villagers in the buffer zones to give more space for the fauna. People go there to see tigers, which will depend on your luck but do understand you are not going there just to sight the tigers. There are so many species of animals to spot - deer, sambars, monkeys, birds and reptiles can all be found there. The view of the forest and the river itself is breathtaking. Do plan your stay in the forest lodges inside the jungle – it is safe. I am sure it will be a memorable experience of one's lifetime. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Shawn wayne says, “Bandhavgarh is known for very good tiger sightings and this fact makes thousands of travellers come here for jeep safaris. The safari permits are issued by the government and are probably the most expensive safari permits in India. One exclusive safari costs as much as 6,000 rupees. In case there is no online permit available the only option is to queue outside the ticket office for several hours. We learnt about the entire ordeal from our fellow passengers in the safari jeep who were staying at another hotel. Our safari was arranged on a sharing basis by the staff of wildflower resort where we were staying. The safari was a wonderful experience and as advertised we did see a tiger from very close quarters. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Giridhar Giridhar adds, “Other animals like the tiger are elusive and one is lucky to spot one during a quick visit. The ecosystem is a swampy marshy one that supports varied kind of vegetation and through it the birds and animals. There are numerous water bodies inside, which are good places for bird watching as well as spotting elephants and rhinoceros. We were told that the park has multiple entrance gates and one’s chances of spotting different types of wildlife are enhanced by entering through different gates as by maximising time spent inside the jungle. Kaziranga is a pristine forest far off from civilisation with its own sights and sounds and a bewitching experience.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Lakshmi Sharath says, “We did two safaris here and were unlucky but another group spotted a leopard with a kill. We however heard a lot of warning calls. It is recommended that you do at least two safaris here. Besides tigers and leopards, you can spot bears as well. Chital, Nilgai, Sambhar pose for you. The River Ken flows through the forest. You can also spot lots of raptors and vultures besides black storks and other water and jungle birds. You can spot crocodiles in the water as well. Wear warm clothes for the safaris. Carry a mask and cover your cameras as there is a lot of dust. Bring a water bottle with you.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Dipti P Kindo shares, “Go and explore the wild animals and migratory birds freely in the peaceful wild environment with just the chirping of the birds and the sound of rushing water because for visiting different sites you will have to travel merely sitting on the deck of your boat as you float through mangrove forests. It is an unforgettably wistful journey watching the serene beauty. - It is better to go in between December to February with the hope and higher chances of viewing the Royal Bengal tiger. - If you love Hilsha Fish or you can say “Ilish Maach”, visit in August during the Hilsa Food Festival. - If you have planned with HolidayIQ or any other travelling agency, then there will be no issues. Otherwise, you will have to take prior permissions for the entrance to National Park and hire boats as per the availability. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Monica Rai shares, “Imagine an endless dense forest teeming with millions of wildebeest, towering boulders sprawling with tawny tigers and cubs, and the earthy smell seized by the monsoon brimming with mist. Imagine a place completely unaware of civilization where wildlife still reigns supreme. It is hard to believe a place like this still exists, but it does. It is called Tadoba. The first time I experienced this wilderness, it captured my soul. I felt compelled to share this travel experience with others. Whether one gets to see the tiger or not but there is no guarantee except one will lose all track of time as the sun rises and sets over the breath taking landscape.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer bilat Singh adds, “Quite apart from the chance of seeing a tiger, the national park itself is a sight to see, with a diverse ecosystem and many other creatures that subsist on it. For birdwatchers, this is a place to visit, although chances are that constantly peering up at the numerous species hiding away in the tall Sal trees will leave you with a crick in the neck. We counted at least 25 species of birds that we had not seen before including the ungainly looking yellow- footed green pigeon and the elegant grey hornbill. The park is quite well-managed with a limited number of jeeps allowed into each safari, and divided into zones, to prevent over-crowding. When a tiger is sighted, some commotion is inevitable.” Read Full Review
