Best Tiger Reserves in Central & West India for Safari Tours
The tiger reserves of Central and West India are among the best tiger national parks in India. Home to vast and mixed forest land characterised by Sal trees and bamboo thickets, the flat land here is scattered by tropical moist dry deciduous vegetation whereas the low lands have grassy meadows; thus making the forests not so dense as you will find in the national parks of the Western Ghats or North East India. This relatively sparse vegetation makes it an ideal place for tiger spotting and safari holidays in India. Also if you are looking for best forest safari experiences in India, then our recommendation will be to visit these top tiger reserves of Central India.
