PANNA NATIONAL PARK & Tiger Reserve
About Panna National Park
Panna National Park, also a Tiger Reserve, has been awarded the title of ‘Best Maintained National Park in India’ by the Ministry of tourism in the year 2007.
Panna National Park has also been in the spotlight for housing Ghariyal – a huge reptile found only in the Indian subcontinent. Ken river, which flows through the national park, gives it unparalleled beauty as well as gifts it the highest waterfalls in India. Once, the park had lost a good number of tiger population due to pouching, eventually leaving behind only two tigresses. But an immediate decision was taken to relocate tigers from other national parks with the help of WWF and PATA. Over the next few years, a group of seven tigers was successfully translocated here. These tigers mated several times, eventually increasing the tiger population and also increased tiger sightings.Today, Panna National Park is amongst one of the best places for tiger sightings and a place where one can enjoy its calmness as well as the trill it offers with its varied wildlife.
