Best tiger safari park in the middle of India. We visited in January this year and booked online 2 months in advance because its too tough to book on window. Kanha gate is d best option to enter in this beautiful forest. We were lucky of having dedicated guide and a jeep driver. They managed to see us two tigers... More

The forest was so beautiful. Everyone should visit this beautiful Jungle. One kind advice, Kanha means not only a tiger, there are other species around and jungle and they were very beautiful. The guides and the drivers always take initiative to show the tiger but it depends upon the luck as well. The forest at Kanha is very well-maintained. Kudos... More

Kanha is the most well maintained and disciplined tiger reserve in India. We took safari in Kanha, Mukki and Kisli zones. Saw lots of deers, peacocks, various birds, bisons, jackals, sambhars and barasingha both in Kanha and Mukki zones which are a mix of forests and meadows. We were not able to see many animals in Kisli but driving thru... More

SUMMATION: Large Park with many animals, but unfortunately, artificially managed for tourism to the neglect of the environment. You will have a guide/driver from the Lodge, 1 or 2 Rangers from the Park, and sometimes a villager. They will all ignore you and only talk with each other, but all will expect tips. We observed 16 Tigers (a female and... More

Early online bookings and early going to the jungle increases the chance of seeing the king of the jungle, seeing the tiger depends upon the luck and may not be guaranteed, however there is a large variety of flora and fauna like bison, deer, sambar, wild boar, wild dog, and if you are lucky enough you can also get to...

Our first open safari and it was worthy, after 3 hours of patience, we where able to spot a tiger and site him at a distance of 50-75 meters, Thanks to our forest guide Mr Kemleshwar. Mobiles are not allowed in the park. One must visit the forest, to get a glance of beautiful forest and animal.

If you are a wildlife fan then Kanha is a must visit place. The tiger reserve is located in Madhya Pradesh and has very good chances of tiger sighting. Kanha is reported to have up to 100 tigers densely located in the forest area. The forest is very dense and thrilling, and Kanha happen to have the best weather for... More

I have been to this place thrice, and have never been bored with anything 'too much'. The jungle is splendid by any standards, and places even 50 kms away would be simmering in the heat of the summer, you will feel a distinct chill when you venture for the morning safari. The safari jeep drivers and the tourist guides are... More
