Kanha National Park, Mandla

4.6
#2 of 12 in Wildlife in Madhya Pradesh
Take a journey into the jungle and get close to rare animals at Kanha National Park. Established in 1974, the park is said to be where Rudyard Kipling took inspiration for his famous novel “The Jungle Book.” Take a safari through the thick jungle, open grasslands, and sprawling meadows to discover an abundance of plant and animal life. Spanning over 940 sq km (363 sq mi), the reserve offers sanctuary to a large population of royal Bengal tigers and Indian leopards; if you’re lucky, you might spot one on your visit. Learn how, in recent years, the park has played an instrumental part in saving swamp deer from extinction. At the end of your safari, stop by Bamni Dadar (translated as "Sunset Point") to admire the magnificent sunset. Take a look at our Mandla tour itinerary planning app to schedule your visit to Kanha National Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The chance of seeing a tiger is very small in the months november december. It is a beautiful park, particularly large Barasingha stag is a particular deer. The fog in the morning gives a very special effect. Here we have in 6 game drives, ca 20 hours driving around, 2 times a glimpse of a tiger. This is because of the dense forestation.
