Buffer Area Tourism

Ecotourism provides the tourists with the opportunities to appreciate nature and wildlife in an undisturbed environment; at the same time it also creates opportunities to enhance the livelihood options for local communities. Participation of local communities who have sacrificed the most for protecting wildlife, must be the major beneficiaries of the fruits of tourism.

Madhya Pradesh Ecotourism Development Board has therefore taken steps to link these communities with the tourists through the concept of Buffer Area Tourism. It is a holistic approach towards tourism whose mandate is not only to provide unique experiences to tourists, but also to manage the spill over wildlife population from the core areas, rejuvenate degraded forests lands and to develop suitable habitat in the buffer areas.
