Situated 3 hours away from Jabalpur railway station or five hours from Raipur Airport the park suffers from poor access, yet, this is undoubtedly one of your best options if you are looking at a memorable 'wildlife' holiday! About Kanha National Park: * Morning safari between 6.15 AM and 10.30 PM * Evening safari between 3.15 PM and 6 PM... More

This park is just awesome. The light streaming through the trees in the early morning. Plenty of wildlife and evidence of Tiger activity but they are very elusive. We did not see tigers but there is so much more to this park than tigers

Had been to Kanha National Park in Oct 14, just after the park had reopened. Though tiger sightings are limited in this period, we managed to get one real good sighting. Irrespective of the tiger sighting the abundance of flora and fauna at this place is just phenomenal. The entire jungle experience makes the trip completely worth it

Spotting animals is great here! Besides tigers the park is also home to Leopards adn offcourse it's the only place on earth to find hard ground Barasingha's in the wild.

We usually do our safaris from the Kisli gate but this time on we decided to visit the Mukki side of the forest. Had some great sightings on this side too.. We saw a female tiger about an hour into our ride, and she was calling out to her cubs who were somewhere in the vicinity but we didn't have... More

We did a jeep ride in park - early morning ride through the lush forest was a treat for us. We saw bisons, deer, barasinga and tiger footprints - but no tiger.It can be a monotonous 3 hour ride through park since you aren't allowed to step out of the jeep except once or twice for bathroom breaks.

My partner and I loved our Jeep safaris in kanha national park. You will see a huge number of beautiful deer, monkeys, boars, jackals and birds, and we also saw a mongoose, eagle, jungle cat and antelopes. If you're lucky you might see a tiger, we caught a glimpse of one, but they are much harder to see in winter... More

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

Went to Kanha as part of a volunteer project. 8 safaris into the park and saw 3 tigers. A dream come true.
