Kanha national park cum Tiger reserve is spread over an area of over 1,940 Sq. Kms. of which 940 Sq. Kms. is core area and the rest buffer, located in the Mandla and Balaghat districts of Madhya Pradesh. Tourism is conducted in 4 zones Kanha, Kisli, Sarhi and Mukki zones which comprises almost 20% of total area. This is one of those national parks where buffer forest zone has been declared, a decision which helped the forest department in saving the forest and its denizens.

The major feature of this region's interesting topography is the horseshoe shape valley, the whole park area is surrounded by the spurs of the Mekal range. The Surpan River meanders through Kanha's central Maidans (grasslands also known as meadows) that cover the extensive plateau. Sal and bamboo forests and rolling grasslands (maidans), are by far the most striking features of this region where sighting Swamp deer (Barasingha), Sambhar, Spotted deer, Gaur, Tiger, Leopard, Sloth Bear and other denizens of jungle is common.

At Kanha you can enjoy the creations of God, free roaming wild animals in its all its color and splendor. Tiger - the king is certainly the first followed by Leopard, Gaur, Sambhar, Chital, Barasingha, Barking deer, Black buck, Sloth bear, Jackal, Fox, Porcupine, Jungle cat, Python, Hare, Monkey, Mongoose, etc., including many birds, reptiles, insects and butterflies.

The birds species include Storks, Teals, Pintails, Herons, Egrets, Peacock, Pea fowl, Jungle fowl, Spur fowl, Partridges, Quails, Doves, parakeets, Green pigeons, Cuckoos, Rollers, Bee-eater, Hoopoes, Drongos, Warblers, Kingfishers, Woodpeckers, Finches, Orioles, Owls, and Fly catchers amongst many others. Kanha national park is known as bird watchers paradise also with more than 270 species.

However, if one animal species were to represent Kanha, it would almost certainly be the Hard ground Barasingha or the swamp deer. This species of Barasingha (commonly known as swamp deer) found at Kanha is only one of its kind, as they have adopted themselves to the plains of central India and inhabit the large open tracts of grass amidst the forests of sal and bamboo. A few decades ago, the Barasingha was faced with extinction but conservation measures taken by the forest department saved them and today their population has risen from meager 66 to around 400.

Kanha wildlife reserve is a paradise for nature lovers and wildlife photographers who can spot and photograph more than 22 species of mammals, 117 species of butterflies, 27 species of birds along with other flora and fauna in this well protected forest. Sal and Bamboo is the most common species of trees found in this world famous tiger reserve along with hundreds of trees, plants, shrubs and bushes which have medicinal properties.


Jeep Safaris
Jeep Safaris are the best way to experience Kanha’s wildlife and wild habitats. Safaris are conducted early morning and in the late afternoon by qualified and experienced naturalists in open 4x4 Suzuki jeeps that have been specially fitted with front-facing, elevated seats to enhance the safari experience. Kanha opens from sunrise till 11:00am and then from the late afternoon until sunset. The park permits entry only after sunrise while exits must be before sunset, so timings tend to change with the season. Places of interest inside the park include Shravan Tal, Bahaman i Banjar, Kanha Meadows and the Interpretation Centre.


Birding walks, nature trails and cycling
Birding walks, nature trails and cycling are conducted on request by our lodge naturalists in the forests adjoining the lodge. Guests can visit several small lakes, the Banjaar River and Gond tribal homes during these excursions


A weekly market
A weekly market is held every Friday at Sarekha village and on Wednesdays at Kumadehi village, both of which make interesting visits.


Elephant safaris
Elephant safaris as joy rides (1 hour) or half-day excursions (4 hours) can be organized through the forest department.
