An early morning safari in Kanha is a wonderful time to soak in the beauty of the forest and catch a glimpse of the animals in their natural habitat. Wake up at 4 a.m. to be in time for the safari and don’t forget to carry a pair of binoculars (or rent one at the gate). The safari booking needs to be done online and while doing that, research in advance about the core and buffer zones at Kanha National Park. Sighting is often rare in the buffer zone, so it is recommended that you opt for a jeep safari in one of the core zones, Kanha, Kisli, Mukki and Sarhi.
Kanha National ParkWe'll continue with our scheduled jungle safari into the park for wildlife watching both morning & evening. Overnight stay in the hotel.Kanha Tiger Reserve created in 1974 under Project Tiger. The playground is the sole habitat of this rare challenging floor barasingha (Cervus Duvauceli Branderi). From the 1930s, the Kanha area was divided into two sanctuaries: Hallon and Banjar, of 250 sq km and 300 sq km each. Though one of these was subsequently disbanded, the area remained a protected one until 1947. Depletion of the tiger population in the years that followed led to the area being made an absolute sanctuary in 1952. By a special statute in 1955, Kanha National Park came into being. Since that time, a set of stringent conservation programs for the security of the park's fauna and flora has awarded Kanha its deserved reputation for being among the best and greatest administered National Parks in Asia, an irresistible attraction for all wildlife lovers and a real sanctuary because of the animal and avian population.Kanha national park is habitat for subsequent wildlife mammals such as tiger, bison, gaur, sambar, chital, barasingha, barking deer, black deer, black buck, chousingha, nilgai, mouse deer, sloth bear, jackal fox, porcupine, hyena, jungle cat, python, pea fowl, hare, monkey, mongoose, tiger, and leopard.

Kanha National Park is Madhya Pradesh's largest tiger reserve. The evergreen sal forests of Kanha provide shelter to leopards, sloth bears, barasinghas, dhole, guar, Indian python, 300 species of birds, and of course, the emperor of the jungle. However, the feel good story of Kanha is associated with the endemic hard ground barasingha, the state animal. Twenty years ago their numbers were dropping like flies. Individuals and organizations worked hard to protect this antelope species and today these magnificent creatures can be seen grazing all around the reserve.
Located in the state of Madhya Pradesh, the Kanha National Park was the inspiration behind Rudyard Kipling's classic Jungle Book. The place is known for its open grassy meadows, where sighting wildlife is easier. The meadows also provide a good backdrop for photography.
