Madhya Pradesh became the first state to launch India’s first hot air balloon wildlife safari in a tiger reserve on Friday in the world famous Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve.
Forest Minister Vijay Shah said the activity will be restricted to the buffer area and people can watch tigers, leopards, Indian sloth bear and other wild animals from a height.
“One more adventure has been added for tourists coming to Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve with the launch of the hot air balloon wildlife safari. It is the first in any tiger reserve in the country. Now like Africa’s forests, tourists in India will also enjoy hot air balloon wildlife safari” Shah informed.
He said the state was planning to introduce this service in Pench, Kanha, and Panna tiger reserves as well.
