If you're a wildlife lover, a highlight of any tour is a jeep safari through a beautiful national park to spot all creatures great and small.
The beautiful Kanha National Park is noted as being one of the parks to have inspired Rudyard Kipling to write the Jungle Book, and it's hard not to picture the characters or hum one of the film tunes as you travel through the glorious forests and meadows. Also known as Kanha Tiger Reserve, it is one of the best maintained National Parks in Asia, operating a stringent conservation programme to protect the medley of inhabitants. These include the famous Royal Bengal Tigers, along with the deer and antelopes they hunt, alongside the Indian Elephant, sloth bear and a variety of flora and birdlife.
For bird enthusiasts, the tropical serene environment offers a wide range of birds including water birds, common ground birds, birds of prey, scavengers and nocturnal birds.
Elephant safaris are operated inside Kanha National Park helping visitors to access areas not possible by jeep. Full day elephant back safaris need to be booked at least a month in advance.
The park is closed during summer and it is best to visit during the winter months, between mid-October and end of June.
