Went on 4 safari drives - the vistas were beautiful, and I saw a tiger for about 10 seconds. Would like to go again, but I think next... More

Three tigers seen in 4 drives, as well as jackals, bison, monkeys, birds, peacocks an deer. Park is spotlessly clean and no off road driving allowed. Very strict with timings which was good. Some of the best landscapes we have seen. The entry to the park is a bit chaotic but the jeep drivers know the routine. The spotters provided... More

according to the local people and the guides it is really difficult to spot a tiger in kanha national park in that particular period but we were really lucky to find a fully grown male tiger.

We had 6 safaris during the stay, morning and evening We saw the TIGER (the one animal all crave to see) on two different occasions. Besides that we saw gaur, jackals, wild... More

We did the safari in our own car instaed of the gypsy. Going in the middle of the jungle, while spotting deers, bisons and may other animals is a thrill. On the elephant safari we were lucky to have spotted a family of tigers! Seeing them at a foots distance by sitting on top of the elephant, was splendid! A... More

Kanha National Park is truely the land of our National Animal Tiger. Appreciate the Govt. of MP, Forest Dept. and its officials for maintaining the sanity of the Park and providing the animals and birds a home of their own. The park has contributed a lot in Project Tiger and owing to which the population of this endangered species is... More

We got really lucky on one drive and saw 5 tigers, including 3 cubs. One thing I did like about Kanha was a tiger nicknamed 'Richard Parker' had... More

We were returning from Mukki after some very disappointing safaries. Since we were in our suv I insisted that we take the Supkhar roaf to reach Bilaspur. It was around 11.30 am. After travelling a little distance my alert husband heard an alert call of a Sambhar dear. We stopped and my elder immediately spotted the huge male tiger .... More
