I simply love the kanha flora. I am amazed by the forest. We went in end may and the forest areas was raining every day eventhough the rains had not arrived in India. It is a true saying that forests needs to be preserved to save life. 50 kms from forest was a dry belt. Everything within 50kms of forest... More

Verdant, sprawling unspoilt forest with magnificient sal trees. The park teems with chital, gaur, barasingha, peacocks and sambhar. We saw a tiger too, but from far and we did not carry any binoculars. Kanha section of the park has a very good museum, canteen and public utilities.

Please book the safari in advance to make it economic. As it is with jeep, guide and permit it becomes quite expensive. Even in... More

My personal recommendation regarding best time for these forests is summer. Having visiting few forests in India and after seeing Kanha, Kanha is and will be my personal favorite. Each... More
