After a long train trip and 2 hours drive from Katni to Bandhavgarh, we finally arrive to the Nature Heritage Resort, the jungle lodge where we will be call “home” for the next 5 days. Situated just 2 minutes from the main gate of the park, this lodge, owned by Mr. Raj Sharma, is the best place to be if you want to photograph the tigers.
The game drives led by Mr. Raj and his friend Mr. Deepak Talan are all focused on providing the best photography opportunities of the park main attraction. We have been really astonished with their knowledge of the tiger behavior and the professionalism and ability to track them in the jungle.
The other side of the work of Mr. Raj and Mr. Deepak and the lodge is all about the wildlife conservation. Being founders of Tiger Guards conservation program, they play a very important role for the park conservation and to the safety of the tigers in Bandhavgarh as a source of extra funds for the park patrolling guards.
For more information about the lodge and the conservation program visit the Nature Heritage Resort homepage.
We would like to thank Mr. Raj and to Mr. Deepak for the perfect experience we had in Bandhavgarh (in the next posts in this blog you will see why). It has been a privilege to have the best tiger experts team with us, also with the excellent driver Dino, what we called the “Dream Team” of the Nature Heritage Resort, providing so many excellent photography opportunities in absolute all game drives we had, and for sharing with us the so much interesting stories about the tiger characters of Bandhavgarh.
Bahut, bahut shukryia!
