Bandhavgarh National Park Safari

Elephant Rides and Full Day Safaris

Elephant back rides at Bandhavgarh National Park is yet another very popular activity that wildlife enthusiasts and photographers look forward to. The Wildflower Resort's team would be delighted to arrange an elephant back safari should you want to have this wonderful experience. As this excursion isn't always available and cannot be booked online or in advance the hotels in bandhavgarh play a crucial role to facilitate this. The available variants for this activity at Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve are either a Half hour elephant back joy ride or a Three hour elephant safari. A short elephant ride lasting for 30 minutes is possible if you hold a valid safari permit for the same zone where the elephant rides are being made available, a matter of sheer coincidence. As the safari experts at our bandhogarh resorts are well informed about the intricacies of the procedure, you must stay at The Wildflower Resort, where your safari itinerary would be designed in a way that these possibilities convert into reality. You must be aware that wild elephants are not found in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The forest administration at various national parks in Madhya Pradesh like Bandhavgarh national park, Pench National Park, Kanha National park, Panna national park, Satpura National Park etc.have tamed elephants for surveillance and rescue purposes. These elephants are made available for research, photography and tourism purposes only as a secondary priority. The terms, conditions and procedure involved is so difficult that it is not easy for normal visitor to hire them to enjoy elephant safari in Bandhavgarh. Although we cannot ensure the visitors they will get the elephant ride for sure, but the success rate with us is significantly higher than most other resorts in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve.

As our resorts in bandhavgarh host wildlifers and photographers and conducts wildlife photography tours on a regular basis, your staying at our wildlife lodges in Bandhavgarh is your best bet.
