Satpura national park

Madhai Zone


Madhai is actually the name of local village market area at Sarangpur village, on the bank of Denwa river. When Satpura forest was visited by British Indian officers, they choose this village as a point to cross the Denwa river and erect a rest house for night stay, helpful in forest management and hunting expedition trips. This building is still intact to reveal the past of Satpura tiger resrve forest. Now with the passage of time, when India gained freedom, this rest house was still used as entry gateway to this forest. Due to its across the river location, it offers inconvenience to normal visitors and was a challenge for tourism development thus a separate bulding was made in Sarangpur village to attend visitors and do official formalities. For better management, tiger reserve was diveded in to zones and naming was done as per popular local attractions thus Madhai zone was created. Today it is main tourism point for visiting Satpura national park.
