At the heart of India is Madhya Pradesh – home to the Vindhyas and the Satpuras, to forested plateaus and winding rivers. It is home, too, to a fifth of the world’s tiger population. Bandhavgarh National Park is tiger country at its best: 448 sq km of deciduous forest and grasslands, laced through with perennial streams and springs.
CONSERVATION AT MONSOON FOREST
A reforestation project that has taken on a piece of barren land, devastated by overgrazing and logging. We have succeeded in bringing back the forest but to make it a sanctuary for the rare and fast disappearing indigenous trees and plants of the jungles of central India, one of the last remaining homes of tigers in the wild. A walk through our botanical sanctuary, reforestation project and small farm. It will bring alive the many myths and legends surrounding the diverse flora and fauna of Central India and a chance for direct contact with the local community who are integral to all aspects of the project.
'WILD ABOUT PLANTS’ NURSERY OF INDIGENOUS TREES
In the heart of the project is a large nursery of indigenous plants that provides growing stock for other deficient areas and reforestation projects nearby. With more than 90 species of indigenous trees and annuals, the nursery is the backbone of the reforestation project. Nearly all the plants have been grown from seed at the nursery. We encourage guest to plant trees and help us grow the forests.
