Bandhavgarh used to be the hunting reserve of the royal family of Rewa, though its history goes back two millennia. In caves you can still see paintings by the ancients. It is a retreat where history and nature meet.

Covering about 450 sq km, about half the park comprises sal forests, while mixed forests are found in the higher reaches of the hills. Stretches of bamboo and grasslands extend to the north. The main viewing area is still in the core of the Park with its 32 picturesque, wooded hills. An ancient fort up on a precipice, 800 metres high, dominates the Park.

This is where the famous white tigers of Rewa were discovered. Also to be seen here are nilgai, chousingha, chital, chinkara, wild boar, foxes, jackals, the jungle cat, ratel, hyena, porcupine, the rhesus macaque and the black-faced langur.
