About the Reserve

Sanjay-Dubri Tiger Reserve is wildlife paradise located in Sidhi district of Madhya Pradesh. The National park was established in 1975. The world famous white tigers “MOHAN” was found and rescued from the forest of this landscape by Maharaja of Rewa in 1951. He was later reared in an enclosure in Govindgarh and bred to tigress Radha. She delivered first white tigers in captivity, and most of the white tigers present in the zoo across the world are their progeny only. In remembrance, one of the park Range has been named after this White Tiger, “Mohan”.
Now these beautiful Sal forests are not only home for Tigers and hundreds of other species of wild animals but they also form wildlife corridor, connecting Bandhavgarh and Palamau Tiger Reserve. Occasionally the wild elephants from neighboring Chhatisgarh area venture into the forests of tiger reserve for temporary shelter.
