Deer

Sambar deer are much more easily seen in Bandhavgarh and seem to have taken over the habitat of the swamp deer of Kanha.
Spotted deer are also numerous
including this old deer that just kept eating the new grass at the edge of the trackway despite the jeep being only a few feet away

Travel

top
To get from Kanha to Bandhavgarh we used some of the minor roads. Most of the locals walked or cycled.

We soon learned that the top animal on the road was the cow even in the middle of a bustling big city!
