About Satpura National Park
Satpura is a very important part of The Highlands of Central India. Captain James Forsyth spent a considerable time in the area in the mid-19th century. One can camp along the river, an experience which lasts for 2 nights, 3 days. There are varied ways to explore Satpura’s flora and fauna – the usual jeep safaris, boat safaris and interesting walking safaris. Tigers call Satpura a home for sure, but their sightings are bleak. However, you are almost assured a Leopard and a Sloth Bear sighting in Satpura. With an extremely contrasting landscape, Satpura imbibes everything; from hills to gorges and the ravines and plains of Churna.
Should you want to stay inside the national park, you can spend a night in Churna Camp and get a feel of staying in the heart of the forest. So, if you have accomplished doing regular morning and evening safaris, Satpura offers a lot of activities. It encapsulates the complete wilderness experience. The highest point of the Highlands is just about a 2-hour drive from the national park, called Panchmarhi.

Satpura National Park conducts jeep safaris. A half day jeep safaris can be further categorized as a morning safari and an evening safari. The morning safaris start around 0600 hours depending on the sunrise time and lasts for about 3-3.5 hours. After the morning safari, the guest heads back to the lodge/resort. You can freshen up, eat a quick lunch, relax for a bit and later head back in to the jungle for your evening safari. The evening safari lasts for about 3 – 3.5 hours depending on the time of sunset. Post your evening safari, you head back to the lodge for dinner and take the rest of the evening at leisure.
Satpura National Park also offers walking safaris on guided tiger trails within the buffer zone of the park. Here, the guest is accompanied by a naturalist and a forest guard. On the trail, you are acquainted with the best of flora and fauna by expert naturalists and guides the park has to offer. These trails are fruitful for people who wish to take a break from regular jeep safaris and explore the park vegetation at close quarters.
