En route we will make a brief stop at the UNESCO Heritage site of Bhimbetka. The site is known for cave paintings dating back to approximately 30,000 years. Rock shelters that were home to humans, millennia ago. And a rich flora and fauna surrounding these, indeed, make Bhimbetka a gift to us from our earliest ancestors. An archaeological treasure, Bhimbetka has around 243 rock shelters. The paintings found in the rock shelters here have a striking resemblance to the ones discovered in Kakadu National Park in Australia; to the cave paintings of Bushmen in Kalahari Desert and Upper Palaeolithic Lascaux cave paintings in France. A walkthrough these ancient naturally carved rocks surrounded by dense forests of Bhimbetka will bring alive child-like wonder in you. Drive for another 2 hours to arrive at the lodge. In the afternoon there will be a Safari in the Park.
Nestled in to the beautiful forested hills of Satpura landscape, the Satpura Tiger Reserve is one of the most biodiversity rich areas of Central India. From the small insectivores plants to the Indian Gaur and Tiger, every flora and fauna typical to Central Indian Highlands are found here. The reserve was formed after merging Satpura National Park, Bori Wildlife Sanctuary and Pachmarhi Wildlife Sanctuary together in the year. This is also a part of the Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve which covers almost 4927 sq. km.
