Bandhavgarh National Park
Location : Umaria District,
The Bandhavgarh jungle, when it is large
enough, becomes a living self-sustaining organism providing its own
climate, atmosphere, water and nutrition through its recycling systems. It
even has a sleep wake cycle. As more light fills the sky, Bandhavgarh
begins to awaken.

Wandering through the Bandhavgarh national park on an
Elephant Back, the chances of seeing a tiger are quite good. Among the

Boar and sometimes a Fox or Jackal.
