Van Vihar National Park, situated in Bhopal, the capital city of Madhya Pradesh, India, is a unique and significant wildlife reserve that offers a natural habitat for a variety of indigenous species in an urban setting. Unlike traditional wildlife sanctuaries, Van Vihar National Park is a modern zoological park that aims to provide a haven for animals while also serving as an educational and recreational space for visitors.

Spread over an area of approximately 4.45 square kilometers (about 1.72 square miles), Van Vihar National Park is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. The park is divided into two main zones: the herbivore section and the carnivore section. Each zone features enclosures and open areas designed to replicate the natural habitats of the animals.

One of the distinctive features of Van Vihar National Park is its emphasis on providing a natural environment for rescued and orphaned animals that cannot be released back into the wild due to various reasons such as injuries, health issues, or habituation to human presence. The park is home to a variety of species, including tigers, lions, leopards, bears, deer, monkeys, and a wide range of bird species.

Visitors to Van Vihar National Park can explore the park through guided safaris or self-guided walking tours along well-marked trails. Interpretive signage and information boards provide insights into the park's wildlife, ecology, and conservation efforts. The park also features amenities such as nature interpretation centers, picnic areas, and children's play areas, making it a popular destination for families, school groups, and nature enthusiasts.

In addition to its conservation and educational initiatives, Van Vihar National Park also plays a crucial role in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation efforts, providing medical care and shelter to injured and distressed animals before releasing them back into the wild whenever possible.

Overall, Van Vihar National Park serves as an important urban oasis that not only conserves biodiversity but also promotes environmental awareness and appreciation for nature among visitors.
