Once Upon A Forest

Once Upon A Forest

Listen to the tales of Central India's forests

At the heart of every forest, moreso with forests like those in Central India that are as old as time, zealously guarded by gnarled, old roots and dense canopy, lies a story.

The Once Upon A Forest itinerary will take you through 6 jungles: the lesser-known Panna forests with its geologic resources of diamonds and emeralds, the once-glorious Gond kingdom of Bandhavgarh, the popular, well-explored Kanha that features on every wildlifer’s list, the Pench corridor that forms a continuum with Kanha, and the offbeat Satpura National Park that is emerging as a veritable sanctuary for wildlife today, ending with Tadoba Tiger Project with its revolutionary conservation model in Maharashtra, each with their own stories.

Satpura

Day: 1-3

arow

Fly from Delhi / Mumbai to Bhopal. A four hour drive will bring you to Satpura National Park.

The Satpura National Park is a government-run initiative to protect India’s greenest corridor for biodiversity, whose zones are irrigated by the Denwa and Sone rivers. The Satpura region is named after a west-to-east running hill range that divides India into two sections: the northern river plains and the mountains, and the southern peninsula. Part of the mosaic of central Indian forests, Satpura hosts a wide variety of biodiversity and provides a refuge for species like the common leopard, the wild dogs, the Indian bison or gaur, the sloth bear, among others. The area is also a haven for bird life, with forest-dwelling and river-dependent species and a rich diversity of raptors. Nighttime also comes alive to the sound to nightjars and bats, and one can ponder over mysterious scuffles in the undergrowth under a starry velvet sky.

During your stay in Satpura, you can choose to encounter wildlife in a number of ways:
