The park and surrounding forests have a rich and varied bird life; hornbills, partridges, golden orioles, blossom headed parakeets, golden eagle, falcons, hawks and sun birds.

As a park for game viewing, Bandhavgarh is considered by many as one of the best in India. The park is undulating and situated in the Vindhya Range of hills, which stretch across central India.
