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.

Hunting was carried out by the Maharajahs and their guests - otherwise the wildlife was relatively well-protected.

It was considered a good omen for a Maharajah of Rewa to shoot 109 Tigers. His Highness Maharajah Venkat Raman Singh shot 111 Tigers by 1914.

Covering 448 sq km, Bandhavgarh is situated in Shadol district among the outlying hills of the Vindhya range. At the centre of the park is the Bandhavgrah hill rising 811 metres above sea level, surrounding it our a large number of smaller hills separated by gently sloping valleys.

The vegetation is chiefly of Sal forest in the valleys and on the lower slopes, gradually changing to mixed deciduous forest on the hills, also bamboo is found throughout.
