Corbett, Kanha & Bandhavgarh Tour

Destinations Covered

Tour Overview

Familiarize with the denizens of thick Indian Jungle on this Tiger Safari in India. It includes some of the most sought-after wildlife destinations in the country like Corbett National Park in the north along with Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Park in Central India.

Corbett is known as the land of the Roar, Trumpet and Song, rightly so since it is the diverse land that homes the Royal Bengal Tiger, Asian Elephant and close to 600 species of birds! What more, is that all of this wildlife converges in the laps of the Himalayan Foothills and clear waters of the Ramganga River. More so, you get the chance of staying amidst wilderness in the 100 year old forest rest house, in one of the most sacred locations in the forest, the Dhikala Zone.

After Corbett, you also get the opportunity to witness the vistas of Central India. Kanha National Park homes some of the biggest Tigers in the country while Bandhavgarh has one of the highest Tiger densities.

Witness this spectacular panorama on this exclusive Corbett, Kanha and Bandhavgarh Tour.

Joy! This was my FIRST tiger safari! My best friend and I chose Nature Safari India to organize our trip to Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks. I have nothing but rave reviews for Nature Safari India. Deepkul, our agent, was phenomenal! Deepkul arranged everything for us, with attention to details we had no clue about. Deepkul was always available for any questions via whatsapp chat/calls, helped us with flights, getting our visas and provided helpful tips. I was impressed BEFORE leaving the USA. During our time in India, all the staff at Nature Safari India were courteous, friendly and helpful.

After a very succesfull Tiger-safari with "Nature Safari India" in 2022 we decided to return to India this year. This time we focussed on bird-watching and bird-photography, together with Mr Deepkul Chetri, who was always very quick to respond and gave us very good advice, we set up a 3-week programme in the Nort-East of India. We visited Nameri NP, Kaziranga NP (with a lot of Rhino's!!), Mishmi Hills, Dibru Saikhowa, Dihing Patkai where we did amazing birding trips, nature walks and boat-safari's. Again it was a very succesfull adventure, everything was perfect organized.

Unbelievable experience and a wonderful company to work with. We spent 3 weeks in India, visiting 4 tiger reserves as well as some of the cities. Can't recommend this company enough - Sharad was always very quick to respond to my questions and nothing was too much trouble. At every turn we were met and escorted by either a driver or, while in Delhi by Deep who was always there, smiling, to greet or farewell us on the next sector of our trip. During our visit to Vrindavan for the Holi festival, we were guided and protected by another member of the team, whose patience and care was just amazing.I would return to India just to book with Nature Safaris again.

Awesome Experience! Top notch and will use them again! We did the 4 day 3 night Jim Corbett National Park Tiger Safari. We left and returned to Delhi. It was an awesome and one of the highlights of our three weeks in India! Our guide VJ and driver Savage were very friendly and knowledgeable. With four separate tiger sightings (along with plenty of deer, antelope, elephants and birds and two of the six safaris were in the rain). We’ve done safaris in Africa and Sri Lanka – this experience ranks with the best. Sharad’s customer service was top notch and very proactive. There were some bumps in the road – it is India of course, but Sharad always reached out proactivity.

Five weeks in India, 20 tigers, and so much more. All that said, the trip was amazing. We ended up seeing 20 tigers in 28 game drives. We were always doing game drives in the park's core zones. We did game drives in 5 parks (Tadoba, Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Jim Corbett, and Kaziranga). We got over jet lag in a Kerala house boat. We toured Delhi, Mumbai, Arangabad (Ajunta & Ellora Caves), and Agra. We celebrated Holi in the birthplace of Krishna. And we spent 4 days on the Brahmaputra River in Assam. We were not ready to return home at the end of our 5 weeks!

Due to the location of the Reserve in the foothills of the central Himalayas, both Himalayan and peninsular flora and fauna are found in the Reserve.

Established initially as Hailey National Park on August 8, 1936, in honor of Sir Malcolm Hailey, the then governor of the United Provinces, the park’s name was later changed to Ramganga National Park in 1952 and subsequently to Corbett National Park in honor and memory of the late Jim Corbett, the legendary hunter, naturalist-turned-author and photographer, who had helped in setting up the park and in the demarcation of its boundaries.

The reptile population in the park includes Cobras, Kraits, Vipers, Rat snakes, Pythons, Monitor Lizards, and turtles while The two-primate species – the rhesus macaque and the Hanuman langur – inhabit the dense forests of Bandhavgarh. The park has been a center of human activity and settlement for over 2000 years. There are references to it in ancient books such as the Narad-Panch Ratra and the Shiva Purana.  

The oldest sign of habitation in the park is the caves dug into the sandstone to the north of the fort. Several contain Brahmi inscriptions dating back to the 1st century BCE. Various dynasties have ruled the fort, for example, the Maghas from the 1st century CE. the Vakatakas from the 3rd century CE. From there on, Bandhavgarh was ruled by a succession of dynasties including the Chandela. After independence from the British, Bandhavgarh remained the private property of the Maharaja of Rewa until he gave it to the state for the formation of the National Park in 1968. After the park was created, poaching and hunting were brought under control and the numbers of wildlife rose dramatically. The Tigers in particular prospered and the 1986 extension provided much-needed forest to accommodate them.

"Amazingly well-organized trip with many outstanding sights"

Since we live in Germany, we haven’t had any experience with an Indian travel provider before. However, the professional and polite communication. When we arrived at the airport or were changing locations the shuttle was always ready in time, so we could fully rely on the organization. Our naturalist guides were very knowledgeable and showed us a wide variety of bird species, tigers, and many other mammals. All in all, Nature Safari India did a great job to make our stay in India a great experience, from the moment we arrived at the airport until we returned there to catch our flight home. We can definitely recommend them without any hesitation and will travel with them again when we come to India next time.

"Superb safari experience with the best tour operator imaginable"

We had a truly fantastic experience on our trip which was neatly organized into the smallest detail. We had great stays in lovely lodges in Tadoba, Pench, Kanha and Sundarbans during our 2-wk tour. From the drivers hired for transports between the destinations, over the naturalist accompanying our safaris to the staff during accommodation- everything was perfect and we're so happy that we went with Nature Safari as they provided a world-class holiday and top-notch customer care. Sharad, Deepkul and Abhishek were speedy in their replies, very helpful and checked in several times about how it's going. We can highly recommend booking with them, worth every penny!

"Beyond Expectations! An amazing wildlife experience!!"

My time in India was made perfect thanks to Tiger Safari India, every step of my journey was made smoothly and comfortably. The accommodation was of very high standard and the service from every staff member was exceptional. Food was freshly made and by very talented chefs. I came to India to see Tigers and it did not disappoint. In 10 days I saw 11 Tigers! I was very successful thanks to the fantastic guides and drivers, who had excellent skills to locate all sorts of wildlife and could predict a good spot to see the tigers. The parks were stunningly beautiful, filled with mist and large areas of forest and meadows. I already miss watching the sun rising through that scenery. This trip was an...

"Super safari experience"

We did 5 days of safaris with Sharad Vats's team, in Kanha and Pench, in April. Right from the planning to the actual execution, Sharad was accessible, knowledgeable and helpful, to ensure we got a good experience. Not only was the itinerary planned and tweaked multiple times to suit us, but our accommodation and food needs were also taken care of well. We enjoyed the trip immensely, especially because Sharas understood that we were not just after tiger sightings, but enjoyed birds and trees and other wildlife too...
