Recognized as one of the best national parks in Asia, Kanha National Park is the largest National Park in Central India, which has a total area of over 940 square kilometers.

Unlike most of the wildlife destinations, Kanha is not covered with tall trees and dense interiors. Instead, it is bestowed with open meadows with picturesque sights of the natural landscape until the distance your eyes can go. The park, since its establishment in the year 1955, has actively contributed to the preservation of many endangered species. Abundant in flora and fauna, Kanha National Park houses one of the rarest species of deer- the Barasingha, a species that was once on the verge of extinction and has played a major role in its conservation. Today, the park is one of the most scenic wildlife reserves in Asia and is known across the world through Rudyard Kipling’s book- The Jungle Book.

Kanha National Park will give you the glimpses of numerous endangered species of wildlife as well as varied species of birds found here.
