Visit the land of sloth bears and wild dogs on this gentle and rewarding walking safari, surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve.
Satpura National Park is one of the rare places in India where you can experience a safari on foot. Although tigers have been spotted inside the park, the lush vegetation makes the occasional encounter rare. Daily walks in different parts of Satpura and Pachmari with expert naturalist guides are an unmissable opportunity for a true wilderness experience of India’s diverse fauna and flora. And for the tiger fans, a visit to Pench at the end of your trip will drench your thirst with almost guaranteed sighting from your safari vehicle.
