Kanha National Park

The Madhya Pradesh state’s Maikal range of Satpuras, which makes up the central Indian highlands, is home to Kanha National Park. It’s fascinating to note that the national park is the Tiger Reserve and hails as one of the best wildlife refuges in the world. Kanha National Park spans two revenue districts, Mandala and Kalaghat. It was established as a reserve forest in 1879 and reclassified as a wildlife sanctuary in 1933. In 1955, it received another promotion and became a national park.

Kanha National Park offers jeep safaris twice a day, in the early morning and the late afternoon. One driver and one naturalist ferry passengers in the national park in a 6-seater open vehicle. Additionally, each shift only permits a certain amount of cars to enter the forest.

Elephant Safari

The most adventurous activity in the national park and the main draw of the Kanha vacation is the elephant safari. The Kanha elephant safari guarantees a hassle-free and secure journey to the wildlife in the tranquil jungle. Moreover, there are certain locations in the national park that connect to the elephants but are inaccessible by jeep. Four people can ride the elephant at once, and it is only possible in the morning. Elephant Safari lasts for 10 to 15 minutes, and make reservations in advance due to the limited availability for full-day safaris.

Safari Zones

The buffer zone and core zone share a border in the middle of the tiger reserve. The forest department strictly protects the conservation of animals and natural resources in the core zone, which is essentially a significant region. The buffer zone is the region that abuts or surrounds the core areas, where compatible human uses of the land or water coexist with the preservation of nature.

  • Kanha, Sarahi, Mukki, and Kisli are the Core Zones of Kanha.
  • Kanha has four buffer zones: Khatia, Sijhora, Phen, and Khapa.

The four central zones, accessible from several entry points. Tourists highly well-like al these central areas.

Besides, you actually reserve a safari zone at the time of booking, but you enter through other gates. Knowing which zones are best to enter by which of the three gates is crucial. We advise you to enter through the Khatia gate if your safari is scheduled for the Kanha or Kisli zones. It is better to access Mukki Zone by Mukki Gate and Sarhi Zone through Sarhi Gate if you have reserved those areas. Although you can technically access any zone by any of the entry gates, the path is too long and difficult to follow.
