Satpura Tiger Reserve

It is hailed as one of World’s finest wildlife destinations. Today, it is famous for its tigers and is one of the best places in the country to see these majestic predators in the wild. The Park covers an area of nearly 524 sq. km. and is set along with the adjoining Bori and Pachmarhi wildlife sanctuaries. Its deciduous forests were once a part of the magnificent jungles of Central India.

The terrain of the national park is extremely rugged and consists of sandstone peaks, narrow gorges, ravines and dense forests. The animals here include leopard, sambar, chital, Indian muntjac, nilgai, four-horned antelope, Chinkara, wild boar, bear, black buck, fox, porcupine, flying squirrel, mouse deer, and Indian giant squirrel. There are a variety of birds. Hornbills and peafowl are common birds found here.

The flora consists of mainly sal, teak, tendu, Phyllanthus emblica, mahua, bel, bamboo, and grasses and medicinal plants.

In previous years, there have been sightings of tigers, dholes, Indian gaur and barasingha, although these are rare.
