A wildlife sanctuary and nature reserve in central India has the highest concentration of Bengal tigers on Earth. Indeed, about 50 of the fierce felines roam Bandhavgarh National Park, and a jeep safari is an ideal way to catch a glimpse of them. (I will not suggest just strolling around through the forests here, for obvious reasons.) The park gets its name from an ancient fort seated at the top of a small hill in the center of the reserve. The Tigers are the star attraction here, but if you visit, keep an eye out for leopards, sloth bears, wild boars, and the remarkable grey Langurs- made memorable from the days of the Ramayana.
