Night Safari Introduced in Madhya Pradesh
Madhya Pradesh has introduced night safari tours in three national parks in Madhya Pradesh on March 4, 2021. Highlights:
With the introduction of night safaris in the three national parks of Madhya Pradesh, wildlife lovers can now experience majestic animals at night.
The three parks include Bandhavgarh National Park, Kanha National Park and Pench National Park.
Usually, day trips are carried out during the day, because tourists feel safer during the day. But because of the day trip, tourists missed the opportunity to witness nocturnal animals in their natural habitat.
Therefore, the state now hopes to organize hunting activities in a controlled manner. Under the safari park, the route will be determined by the state. They will ensure that neither animals nor tourists are harmed.
Reservation for Night Safari can be booked on the Wildlife Safari Reservation portal. The portal is operated by the State Forestry Department.
