On October 1, the wildlife reserves of Madhya Pradesh re-opened for public after the monsoon break. The three famed national parks of the state, Kanha, Pench and Bandhavgarh have been thrown open for wildlife lovers.
As per the report, the visitors of Kanha National Park have been lucky with the spotting of 5 tigers in its Mukki and Kisli Zone. About 37 tourists visited Kanha on 8 vehicles in the morning safari and 4 vehicles carried 16 people in the evening to the Mukki Zone. In Kisli Zone, 15 vehicles in the morning time and 11 in the evening carried tourists on the very first day. It is to be noted that, the park will remain open throughout the year as the proposal for allowing safari in three buffer zones and at night is likely to be passed.
In Bandhavgarh National Park, which opened on the same day, tourists have been quite unlucky with sighting the tiger. The park which is known for its dense population of tigers was a bit disappointing for tourists as no tiger was spotted in any of its three zones. However, wildlife lovers enjoyed the sight of deer, chital, blue bull, peacocks and bison. Around 31 vehicles entered the park on the first day of re-opening.
Pench received comparatively less footfall, however the visitors were fortunate enough to witness animals like bison, deer, chital, leopard and peacock. It is to be noted Route No. 1 is still closed in Pench due to poor road conditions.
