Day 2: We had booked a Jeep for Safari to Panna National park from a travel agent shop we found enroute to our hotel. He came to pick us up at the hotel early morning at 5 am. It was a cool, peaceful and an enchanting drive in the open Jeep. As part of the package a forest guide accompanied us. To our amazement he was really informed and showed us a variety of birds, trees and animals. The flora and fauna is similar to bandhavgarh with fewer tigers. We were able to spot a thirsty female leopard. Ken river passes through the national park which is very clean and serene, one can take a boat ride in it. Overall it was educational and adventurous. It took us around 4 hours to complete the safari.
