This program is a very comprehensive wildlife tour showcasing the best of India Wildlife. The central Indian parks of Bandhavgarh will give you opportunities to see and photograh the Tiger in its prime habitat. Bandhavgarh came into limelight in early 90s after National Geographic made a film on this park, this film resulted in tourists coming to see the legendary Tiger called Charger and Sita. Ever since not only Bandhavgarh has produced one legendary Tiger after another, but it has not let down the tourists by consistently pleasing them by its Tigers. Even today Bandhavgarh stands tallest when you compare it with Tiger sightings in any other park of India.

Kaziranga on the other hand is the last home of the One Horned Rhinos in the world. Very strict conservation rules here have revived the Rhino population here to over 2500 Rhinos now. The hog deer, the swamp deer, Asian Elephants, Water buffalo, and many more endemic species have enjoyed the serenity of Kaziranga.

Various dynasties have ruled the fort, for example, the Maghas from the 1st century A.D., the Vakatakas from the 3rd century A.D., From that time onwards Bandhavgarh was ruled by a succession of dynasties including the Chandela Kings Bandhavgarh became more and more deserted until forest overran the area band it became the royal hunting reserve. This helped to preserve the forest and its wildlife, although the Maharajas made full use of their rights. At independence Bandhavgarh remained the private property of the Maharaja until he gave it to the state for the formation of the National Park in 1968. After the park was created poaching and hunting was brought under control and the number of animals rose dramatically. Small dams and waterholes were built to solve the problem of water shortage. Grazing by local cattle was stopped and the village within the park boundaries was relocated. The Tigers in particular prospered and the 1986 extension provided much needed forest to accommodate them. Overnight at the resort
