It is located just adjacent to the Upper Lake in Bhopal, near Shymala Hills. The animals here are kept closest to their natural habitats, making it a haven for people who love nature. You can spot a vast variety of animals including leopards, cheetah, Neelgai, panthers, etc. as well as birds such as kingfishers, bulbuls, wagtails, and some migratory species. The best time to visit here is between July and September when the chances of seeing a white tiger are the highest. Sprawling over a vast area of 4.45 sq.km, this protected area ensures complete security to animals from poaching and other illegal activities.
The national park categorises animals in 2 categories, i.e., carnivores and herbivores. Herbivores are allowed to roam freely whereas carnivores are kept in enclosed areas. The land is strictly under protection so as to safeguard its flora and fauna. A visit to Van Vihar National Park becomes more enjoyable when you take the safari ride. Furthermore, the adjoining upper lake enhances the beauty of this park. It gets even prettier during the winter season when its time for the birds to migrate. Sightseeing around the park is quite easy as it gives access to its visitors via a network of roads passing through it.
