Similipal National Park

Wildlife Reserve in Northern & Northeastern Odisha

The 2750-sq-km Similipal National Park is famous for its tigers, though sightings are relatively rare. Wild elephants on the other hand are far easier to spot. You'll need your own wheels to do a safari. Several lodgings in Baripada, 25km from the park entrance, can arrange transport into the park, as can Odisha Tourism in Bhubaneswar.
