Here most popular mode of safari is jeep safari. In this mode, open safari jeep is provided to maximum 06 person. With the increase in tourism, later canter vehicles are introduced. Canter is just a open bus thus its carrying capacity is more than jeep and visit cost is also less. In addition to this, some national park, having popular river passing through them, offers boat safari like Satpura national park, Panna national park.
