Madhav National Park

National Park in Gwalior

Madhav National Park, 355 sq km of very degraded forest as well as lakes and grassland, is just east of Shivpuri. It's scattered with relics from the Scindias’ hunting days – a shooting box, hunting lodge and sailing club – and is home to antelopes, deer, sloth bears, langurs and a few leopards. A 20km 4WD tour from the park gate on the edge of town takes two to 2½ hours. Don't expect to see a massive amount of wildlife.
