Arrival at your transit point (Khajuraho) and transfer to the hotel where you can enjoy the wilderness at leisure. A short orientation to the Panna National Park will be provided over lunch. In the evening, we head for an intimate walk with the native inhabitants of the landscape, the Pardhis. Skilled hunters, they are now using their skills not to aid poaching but for the preservation of this landscape and will be sharing their knowledge of local herbs, how they track different wildlife and we might even get lucky to sight some of Panna’s wildlife on foot.
We rise just before dawn to get ready for our first morning safari in the Panna Tiger Reserve. A short session with tea and light snacks, where our skippers will help you with any last-minute preparations before we depart for the safari, carrying along a packed breakfast. Return to the hotel post safari for lunch and some rest. We shall then depart for the evening safari. On our return to the hotel, we share our experiences of watching some of the amazing wildlife we would have witnessed over high tea. We have an opportunity. Our skippers would once again be on hand to assist with any queries. We get together once again during dinner and retire for the night.
Same as Day 2. We return from our explorations, remembering the fond memories created, and bring in Christmas Eve with a special dinner under the stars.
Our final safari in the Panna Tiger Reserve today morning before heading back to bid goodbye to the beautiful forests and Ken River until our next wild wandering.
