Best time to spot Royal Bengal Tiger in Bandhavgarh and Kanha National Park
The park is open from 15th of October till 30th June. Months of April, May and June are considered the best time to watch Royal Bengal Tiger. During this time, we can expect of tigers as heat causes animals to remain close to water sources. Limited water sources will enable us to predict the animal location more accurately. During this time all Zones have good number of active water sources and the area have hills of sand-stone that retain water from long time and also felt cool during day time so Royal Bengal Tiger sighting chances in these Zones are far better than any other tourist National Park. Close to water source, we may be lucky enough to find unusual spting of Royal Bengal Tiger making kill or resting in water etc.
The opening hours are scheduled to accord roughly with the seasonal variations in climate, as well as with the length of the day at different seasons. There is always a mid - day break, so that employees may eat lunch and rest and the animals may have respite to the jungle. The hours are subjected to change because of special conditions; if there is a heavy rain, the park tourism routes will be temporarily hazardous, or official activities such as census taking May scheduled. In practice, "sunrise" and "sunset" are interpreted “dawn" and "dusk" with vehicles being admitted at 6:30 A.M., for example, if sunrise occurs at 6:50. The gate attendants tend to be stricter about exit times, since darkness follows sunset quite rapidly at this latitude.

Facts to Know About the Royal Bengal Tiger
Night vision of the tiger is approximately six times better than humans
To mark their territories, they scratch trees and use their urine.
Unlike other members of the cat family tigers are good swimmers and can go easily inside water for cooling themselves and in the pursuit of prey.
A tiger’s brain may weigh over 300g which is believed to be the largest among carnivores after the polar bears.
Just like human fingerprints, the stripes on each tiger are unique.
For trapping their prey, tigers are often found imitating the sound of other animals. Bears constitute a major part of the tigers’ diet as very often their habitats overlap.
There are very small numbers of tigers who develop a taste for human flesh.
Tigers’ saliva contains antiseptic elements. That is why they lick their wounds to disinfect them.
Tigresses become fertile for only four to five days in the entire year.
Tigers can guess the gender, age and reproductive status of other tigers smelling their urine markings.
It takes 30-40 days for a human to die of starvation whereas a tiger will die within two or three weeks.
Tigers have a better memory than any other animals including humans. They have a hundred times better memory than dogs and dozens of times better memory than primates.
Tigers can run at a speed of approximately 60km/h for short distances.
Tigers are conscious about the rights of females and kids. That is why when several tigers assemble around a kill, they wait for the females and kids to eat first. Whereas, it is just the opposite in the case of lions.
About Sunderban National Park
