Kanha National Park - Madhya Pradesh

Discover Kanha National Park

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 Kanha National Park is spread over an impressive 940 sq km in the Maikal Hills located in the heart of India that forms the Central Indian Highlands. Established as a National Park in 1955, the park is considered to be one of the best managed in Asia and in 1974 it became one of the first to be part of Project Tiger.

With its lush green meadows and thick sal forests, the park is home to the majestic Royal Bengal Tiger as well as a host of other animals including leopards, barasingha (swamp deer), barasingha (swamp deer), sloth bears and sambar deer.

The beautiful Kanha National Park is noted having 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. As one of the best maintained National Parks in Asia, it operates 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.

The park is closed during summer and it is best to visit during the winter months, between mid October and end of June.
