State Forest Minister Vijay Shah launched the hot air balloon safari in the tiger reserve and said that the activity would be restricted to the buffer zone. During the safari, people will be able to spot tigers, leopards, Indian sloth bear, and other wildlife species from the 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 told media persons after inaugurating the new service by taking a ride.
