Bagdara Black Buck sanctuary - Bagdara is strategically located between Bandhavgarh National Park and Varanasi, and with the coming up of this camp will provide the much required link to the wildlife sector. The camp is being set up on an island on the Son River famous for Crocodiles and Mahaseer.

Bagdara has a good population of Black Bucks, Nilgai, Sloth Bear, Wild Boar, Chinkara, Jackals, Leopards and over 280 bird species. The area is under a lot of pressure from human encroachment and poaching. A wildlife tourism project would encourage conservation and highlight the plight of the park.

This project is modeled around a conservation camp which will be built and managed by the villagers from the park. Tourist influx will not only bring in the much needed fund generation but will also boost up the morale of the forest department. It will offer 12 tents on a 50 acre private island.

Camp Bandobast - Bandobast in the English times was a term commonly used for camp preparation and setup when senior officials used to travel to remote villages and jungles. Their complete team including office staff, cooks, helpers and coolies used to travel for months with great pomp and show and all facilities were catered for the officials. Inspired by the same we bring to you Camp Bandobast, done up in the same Raj style and standards. It promises to take you back to an era almost lost, in style. It is located on the plateaus between Panna and Bandhavgarh National Parks, this area provides the essential corridor between both Tiger Reserves. Being difficult to access it has remained protected from human pressure and poaching. The walking safaris also takes place in the forest of Parasmania Shamgiri. It will offer 2 rooms in the farm house and 6 tents.
