Kanha National Park – From The Pages of Jungle Book
Yes this is exactly the jungle, that inspired Rudyard Kipling to write the much loved Jungle book. Don't get amazed when your guide gives you this little piece of information, because this is true. This is indeed the land of Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo and of course the harrowing Sher Khan. The name of the sanctuary is believed to have been derived from the name of a saint who resided here, a long time ago.

This is the most protected wildlife parks in the world and is a very green and dense wooded forest. Located in the Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh, it sprawls over an area of 1,940-sq-kms. This is perhaps the best place to sight the tigers. This horseshoe shaped valley is the home to 22 species of mammals the most common ones are tigers, Sloth Bears, Spotted Dears, Jackals and Wild Indian Dogs.the Sal and Bamboo trees adds to the natural splendor.

As far as the history is concerned, Kanha was divided into two sanctuaries in the year in 1930's. However, due to the constant declivity in the number of tigers, it was again declared an absolute sanctuary in 1947 and it officially came into existence in the year 1952. it is also supposed to be the best administered wildlife park in Asia. Today it is an irresistible attraction for all wildlife savvy and a true shelter for its animal and birds population.

Safari Excursions
The Kanha has made the provision of Jeep and elephant safari for its tourist. Though jeeps can be hired for reconnaissance of the remotest corners of the forest, tiger spotting can be best done while sitting on an elephant. Being an open country is the additional boon to explore the forest on elephant's back. Guides of the forest department are available for the tourists. Safari timings hangers on the seasonal effects.
