As of now, only two ranges-- Kohora and Bagori, are being re-opened for jeep safari whereas Agoratoli and Burhapur range and elephant safari will be re-opened later. The park was closed due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent monsoon season.

Last month, 13 animal casualties were reported due to drowning at the national park after incessant rain in the area. Rains have also lead to poorer road conditions in the national park creating hindrances to undertake the famous safari in the park.
