Satpura Walking, Canoeing & Jeep Safaris,
Satpura National Park
India, Madhya Pradesh
Info : Satpura Walking, Canoeing & Jeep Safaris
If you enjoy visiting wildlife sanctuaries without the crowds, Satpura National Park, deep in Madhya Pradesh, could be a great option. It’s very much the wildlife connoisseurs choice: access is not easy and there are only a few accommodation options (though they are very good!).
Satpura is the only park in India where a variety of safari options are available to you. In addition to the usual Jeep safari; canoeing and boating safaris are also possible, as are walking safaris through the core area of the park. This, combined with the fact that the park attracts very few other visitors, means that you’ll get a much richer and more immersive wildlife experience.
In terms of wildlife, tigers are present, but a tiger sighting is relatively usual. However, sightings of leopards, sloth bears, wild dogs, Indian bison and gaurs (among other mammals) are plentiful and the bird life and flora is impressive.
The park terrain is rugged and extremely varied: from deep valleys to sandstone peaks, gorges, waterfalls, thickly forested areas and a huge reservoir. We’d usually advise staying a few days here, taking advantage of all the different ways one can explore the park and perhaps even camping a night in the buffer zone.
