Bandhavgarh National Park
national park have a very long history. Set among the Vindhya
hills of Madhya Pradesh with an area of 168 sq miles (437 sq
km), it contains a wide variety of habitats and a high density
of game, including a large number of tigers. Bandhavgarh was
declared Project Tiger Reserve in 1993.
Geography, Flora and Climate: When
originally formed in 1968, Bandhavgarh was a comparatively
small park of only 40 sq miles (105 sq km), but in mid-1986 it
was extended to include two large areas of forest adjoining it
on the northern and southern sides. These extension areas
consist mainly of sal forest. In the north a series of ridges,
inter cut by perennial streams, runs parallel to the main Umaria
road which runs through the park. To the south, gently
undulating forest is interspersed with grazing areas, formerly
agricultural land. more>>
Kanha National Park
Kanha in Madhya Pradesh (five hours
driving from Jabalpur, six from Nagpur) has sometimes been
called the N'Gorongoro of India. The simile is apt, albeit Kanha
is far greener and its cordon of hills far more densely wooded.
Unlike Tanzania's N'Gorongoro, the Kanha valley is not a
volcanic crater, though the enclosing hills are a consequence of
geologically ancient volcanic activity. The horseshoe-shaped
Kanha valley, which accounts for nearly a third and the oldest
part of the Kanha National Park, is bound by two distant spurs
emanating from the main Mekal ridge, forming its southern rim.
The spurs, in their gently tapering traverse, nearly close in
the north leaving but a narrow opening for the meandering Sulkum
or Surpan river, the valley's main drainage. Herds of the Kanha
miscellany, the axis deer (chital), the swamp deer (barasingha),
the blackbuck (hiran), the wild pig and occasionally the gaur,
throng the central parkland of the valley, providing the basis
for the comparison with N'Gorongoro. With its confiding herds
and relatively tolerant predators, Kanha offers an almost
unrivaled scope to a keen photographer of Indian wildlife.
