Panna National Park, Madhya Pradesh

4.0
#3 of 12 in Wildlife in Madhya Pradesh
Take a safari ride through 543 sq km (210 sq mi) of Panna National Park, one of India's best-managed tiger reserves. In addition to observing these big cats roaming free, you may encounter deer, wild boars, sloth bears, jackals, monkeys, vultures, and even crocodiles. Neolithic-era stone paintings testify to an early link between humans and animals here, and the Ken River creates a number of whooshing waterfalls and cascades over rocky cliffs. Consider taking an hour-long boat ride to appreciate the park from a different perspective. Bring plenty of water, a pair of binoculars, and a camera with a zoom lens. You can rent a private vehicle to get here at Khajuraho, some 25 km (16 mi) away. Take a look at our Khajuraho trip maker app to schedule your visit to Panna National Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • It's life time experience to travel in Open Maruti Gypsy n watching the natural heritage..... Tiger.... Can plan ur visit if you are coming to Khajuraho.....
  • We went in spring of this year in April when there is hardly any leaf present in the trees and because of this we got to see abundant of Animals and Birds. Must visit. We are lucky to see One adult and one cube tiger during jeep safari.
  • Panna is My Home and People Love the place they where Born, to Live and Die their only.
  • Very good but beware of the guides. They ask for money for tiger sightings. Even without that they expect you to pay some money per head.
  • Excellent place to visit if you love nature. Sighting tigers are quite possible most of the time. I wa lucky to see tiger cubs in their natural habitat.

Where to stay in Khajuraho

The worldwide fame of the Khajuraho temples has given rise to a vibrant tourist industry; consequently, this relatively small town offers a range of accommodation facilities. Most hotels concentrate along the airport road and main temple road, varying from luxury international chains to low budget lodgings. Five-star deluxe outlets with spas, pools, landscape gardens, and views of temples tend to lie closer to the airport, while economy accommodations surround the eastern group of temples and follow the Khudar River. Some family-friendly, affordable establishments have good views of the temples, and a few of the mid-range hotels feature lovely rooftop restaurants.
