Kanha National Park covers over 900 square kilometres and has two entry points — at Kisli and the more remote Mukki gate — with accommodation options at each.
Over 200 bird species and 22 species of mammal, including tiger, leopard, the Indian wild dog and swamp deer, have been recorded and some can be seen over breakfast in the meadows during your morning game drive.
There is a healthy population of tiger and sloth bear although the bear’s crepuscular habits mean it is rarely seen outside the hours of dawn or dusk.
Kanha can be reached from Raipur and Nagpur airports or Jabalpur train station but incorporating visits to the more accessible Bandhavgarh or Pench reduces journey times and enables you to experience the contrasts that each park has to offer.
