An international body working for tiger tourism and conservation TOFT, (Tiger for Tourism) awarded the "Best Tourism friendly Destination" Award to Satpura Tiger Reserve in 2014, and had written following description for Satpura Tiger Reserve.
"Satpura has set an extraordinary example in its approach, planning for tourism early in its opening to visitors, working in partnership with tourism owners, seeking alternative activities to the usual game drives, and enabling canoeing, camping safaris and guided walks in some of Central India's most fabulous landscape. Today some of its greatest successes come from its efforts to rehabilitate buffer forests using visitors on night drives to monitor activities, and day time bike rides in the buffer areas. The park is a superb example of how with vision and foresight one can offer nature travellers exceptional experiences in the natural world, while enhancing conservation objectives."

NTCA AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE (2010-11)
Village Relocation and Resettlement

Existence of human population and honey combing type of settlements are the main destructive factors for the loss of biodiversity. In order to conserve biodiversity and the ecosystem as a whole, relocation of these settlements is the main challenge and priority. Previously there were 65 villages inside the protected area. The relocation process was initiated in 2004-05 with the relocation of forest village Dhai, subsequently forest villages Bori, Sakot and Khakrapura were relocated in 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 respectively. Due to successful resettlement and the development works a total of 37 villages have been relocated and settled at various sites, up to July 2015. The total relocation effort in 37 villages amounted to 3125 relocation units, 2371 in option I(all cash) and 754 units in option II (land to land). These relocation efforts created a inviolate habitat of about 800sq. km., ideal for tigers, co-predators and herbivorous wild animals. This resulted in conservation and improvement of Biodiversity of Satpura Reserve that includes both rare and endangered plant life and wild animals.
