Satpura National Park holidays

One of the best kept secrets of central India, the Satpura National Park characterised by thick dry-deciduous forests with water bodies of the Tara reservoir and striking landscapes, provides a varied ecosystem. Although Satpura is officially a tiger reserve, the tiger population is relatively smaller than most parks in the region and the chances of tiger sightings are limited. While the park authorities have limited the network of trails within the reserve, this is perhaps the only park in central India where walking safaris can be organised within the core area of the park. Naturally, Satpura appeals to those keen to observe the other wildlife that thrive here. The park’s limited exposure to human population, combined with the option of walking safaris in the core area ,means Satpura is arguably the only place in India that offers an intimate wilderness experience. Other than the small tiger population, the park’s natural habitat is home to leopards, wild dogs, sloth bears, wild boars, langurs and Indian gaurs among others. Birding here is also excellent and many raptors, as well as kingfishers and terns, can be spotted.
