Kanha National Park 

        Indian visitor's

        Visitor's from Abroad

 

Located in the Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh, the Kanha National Park is a Tier Reserve that extends over 1945 sq. km. of undulating country. Elevations range from 450 to 900 metres. 

A horse-shoe shaped valley bounded by the spurs of the Mekal ridge gives Kanha an interesting topography.

Kanha National Park 

The Surpan River meanders through Kanha’s central maidans – grasslands that cover the extensive plateaus. Steep rocky escarpments along their edges offer breathtaking views of the valleys below.            

The grasslands at Kanha interspersed with forests of sal, teeming with varieties of deer – the barasingha, chital (spotted deer), chousingha, nilgai, the majestic gaur (Indian bison) and wild pig, is ‘tiger country’. It is ideal for viewing both the predator and the prey.  

It was here at Kanha that the first ever scientific study of the tiger was undertaken by the eminent zoologist George Schaller. Another landmark at Kanha is the preservation of the ‘hard ground’ barasingha (cervus duvauceli branderi) – the only surviving population of this Central Indian subspecies. This was achieved by extending the grasslands, relocating villages and by increasing the habitat.   

The animals at Kanha are best observed from elephant back and the open country makes the chance of sightings reasonably good. Deer are seen along the maidans and gaur at Bamhnidadar or in the Bishanpura-Sondhar-Ghorella area of the Mukki range. This area is also ideal for spotting the dhole or wild dog. Langurs, wild boar, water fowl and birds are also commonly seen.
