In recent decades, human encroachment has posed a threat to India's wildlife; in response, the system of national parks and protected areas, first established in 1935, was substantially expanded. In 1972, India enacted the wildlife protection act and project tiger to safeguard crucial habitats and further federal protections were promulgated in the 1980s.
There are various National Parks and Reserves in India, where visitors have a good chance of spotting the elusive tigers. Depending on how much time you have, traveling to one or two parks is ideal. This will greatly increase your chances of seeing the tigers and will allow you to appreciate the diverse flora & fauna the various parks have to offer. In terms of the best place to see tigers in India, Bandhavgarh, Ranthambore and Kanha National Parks are fantastic, while Satpura, Tadoba and Pench offer good tiger densities but with more diverse activities also on offer.
You can tilt the odds in your favour by arriving when the escalating heat of late spring drives tigers from the thick jungle scrub to more visible waterholes. Some national parks and wildlife sanctuaries are especially rewarding for visitors during the hot months of April to mid-June. Most of the tiger reserves are closed during the monsoon season (July - September).
