Unveiling the Splendors of Kanha National Park: Your Ultimate Guide

In the heart of Madhya Pradesh lies a wildlife haven that has captured the imagination of nature enthusiasts and literary greats alike. Kanha National Park (KNP), the very backdrop that inspired Rudyard Kipling's timeless classic, The Jungle Book, stands as a testament to the marvels of nature. Established in 1955 and later designated as the Kanha Tiger Reserve in 1973, this sanctuary beckons adventurers to explore its diverse landscapes and abundant wildlife.

Exploring the Topography

Covering an expansive area of 940 sq km, including a buffer zone of 1067 sq km and the additional Phen Sanctuary spanning 110 sq km, Kanha Tiger Reserve unfolds a breathtaking canvas of nature. The Surpan River meanders through the grasslands, adorned with Sal trees, bamboo forests, and a vibrant array of fauna. From the majestic swamp deer (Barasingha) to the elusive leopards, every corner of KNP welcomes wildlife enthusiasts into a mesmerizing realm. [Discover the thrill of Wildlife Safaris in India]
