Tiger Safari on Budget

Bandhavgarh National Park and tiger reserve is one of the finest tiger heavens in India. Wildlife enthusiasts and holiday makers yearn to see the tiger in the wild. Pssst it is one of the finest birding destination as well. And for history buffs, monuments dating back to 2000 years and more are lying in decrepit ruins and some in preserved state are a treat to the eyes.

Tiger safari in India anywhere is costly until unless you plan in advance and are well informed. If you land up in Bandhavgarh without planning you will most certainly find it expensive. The local guidance you get will not enable to manage your money well.

So plan in advance!

Book your safari online since a permit is necessary to enter the park. Choose the best zones and leave out the zones in the buffer. For this visit FaceBook pages or other websites for information, or contact some one who has already been there. The permit cost is always fixed but advisable to book in advance.

For saving money try to book a single seat on the jeep or book on a canter. In the 1st option you share the jeep safari cost with others and the latter is cheaper anyway. Hiring a jeep by yourself will be costly but will offer greater independence. Remember safari on foot is not allowed in the Indian tiger reserves.

If you are into birding visit buffer zones as well since this may be less costly and avian are everywhere.

Travelling to Bandhavgarh has few options but the bus and train ride is cheaper. You can travel by overnight rail to Umaria and take a bus to Tala. You can also travel to Jabalpur by overnight train. From Jabalpur you can travel by bus to Katni and then Umaria which is 32 km from Tala Gate of the park. The distance is approximately 180 km.

Luxury resorts offer costly dining experience hence there are many roadside restaurants of dhabas that offer cheaper meals. Eaten hot and recently cooked they are safe. But always use packaged water from reputed company no compromise here.

There are many guest houses and budget hotels in the periphery of the National Park for accommodation. Until unless there is a rush you will have no difficulty in reservations. The best is to explore a list of hotels in Bandhavgarh for accommodation. The websites offer rates as well as amenities provided. Choose the most economical ones that fits the bill and then discuss online with the management before final booking.

In winters no climate control is required whence the room is well insulated. Seek a nice clean property for a stay. Luxurious offerings will cost money fourfold so avoid them while travelling on budget.

Best time to travel is in winters for overseas visitors, but the summer rates are less. In order to get the best rates do not travel during the festivals and New Year.
