We visited 4 National Parks on our recent visit and I loved Kahna. It has recently been extended so you now drive through the buffer zone before entering the park proper at what was the old entrance/exit. The guides were knowledgeable and keen to impart information and the drivers were keen to ensure everyone could see any animals we stopped... More

We were lucky to see a Sloth Bear and a Tiger, VERY close, on our first visit! We were also lucky that the spotters (guides) that we had not only worked well with the drivers but were very good at their jobs and pointed out not only big game animals but also different birds that we saw. They stopped when... More

Kanha is a stunning and varied park with dense forest, steep valleys and large rolling grass meadows. The light is simply amazing as it cuts through the forest. It's also big which means that your guide/driver can get you away from the crowds and sightings can be a bit more private than in other parks. If I could return to... More

Midway upon the journey of our life I found myself within a forest dark... This comes not from Kipling extolling the virtues of this part of India, but Dante who surely must have been to Kanha when he was writing his Inferno. This is a badly run and poorly managed wildlife park that offers little to enjoy and will most... More

Beautiful beautiful landscape, lush green forest, sweeping grasslands with delightful birds, butterflies and animals. The safaris are restricted to avoid rush. We were told there is a high chance of spotting the tiger. But even when we didnt get to spot the elusive king of the jungle the other features made for a memorable holiday. There is a nature's walk... More

This National forest is a treat to a tourists eye. Apart from tigers this forest has a lot to offer consisting of landscaping, birds & the morning mist is just beautiful. Kudos to MP government to have maintained this forest.

went with a group of 35 pax . 6 gypsy but no sighting due to sudden rise in temperature . The place is more good during summer for animal sighting it is just that more chances to see animals in water holes . Over all great experience. Come with pre booking of safari on forest website you can also try... More

From our 4X4, breathing very fresh countryside air, we photographed in totally refreshing silence. The beautiful scene before us: A small lake filled with ducks, herons, shorebirds and two varieties of foraging deer was a wonderful introduction to Kanha National Park. Our 4 drive visit to the Mukki section of the park ultimately yielded sightings of over 70 bird species,... More

Kanha National Park is the very best.... If you’re looking for tigers in India, I would strongly suggest Kanha National Park. It has one of the largest, (and continuing to grow,) number of tigers in a natural habitat. The park has beautiful old growth forest, and very tall trees. Beautiful orchids plants hang from the bark of many of the... More

One of the best forest and game reserves in India. Variety of wild life and bird life is amazing. Well organised, now crowds and great guides. Some of the best wild life guides in the country
