Madhya Pradesh Tourism Board has launched the #BufferMeinSafar campaign for wildlife lovers. The campaign aims to attract more tourists to the National Parks and wildlife sanctuaries in the state which are ready to host tourists following all the safety guidelines and precautionary measures.
During the monsoon months from July to September, the core areas of the forests are closed but the buffer areas of the forest remain open for access and exploration. The campaign title #BufferMeinSafar itself highlights that Madhya Pradesh Tourism will now offer activities in its buffer areas such as Wildlife Safaris, Bird Watching etc. Besides the thrill of spotting various species in the buffer zones, the extensive greenery is a sight for the sore eyes.
