This is a small National Park; compact, yet teeming with wildlife.. The density of the
Tiger population at Bandhavgarh is the highest known in India. Bandhavgarh is also
popular for Spotted Deer, Sambhar, Barking Deer, wild boar, jackals and a large variety of birds.
This is also White Tiger country. These have been found in the old state of Rewa for many years.
The last known was captured by Maharajah Martand Singh in 1951. This White Tiger, Mohan, is now stuffed
and on display in the palace of the Maharajahs of Rewa.
Prior to becoming a National park, the forest around Bandhavgarh had long been
maintained as a Shikargah, or game preserve, of the Maharajahs of Rewa.
