Tiger tours in Kanha National Park take wildlife lovers into one of India’s top national parks to see the majestic big cat in the nation’s rural heart. Kanha National Park is so full of wildlife it is possible to spend an entire trip from the park, celebrating the animals alongside a profusion of mammal and bird species in a spectacular setting on a plateau at the Mikal Range. A trip to Kanha also gives the potential for a day-trip to Agra, site of the Taj Mahal, in addition to extensions to the local Bharatpur and Ranthambore reservations. The national park was officially Created in 1955, in an area where two sanctuaries – Hallon and Banjar – had previously been located since the 1930s. In 1974 the Kanha Tiger Reserve was created with Kanha National Park currently 940 kilometres square in its center, surrounded by a 1,067 kilometre square buffer zone along with the neighbouring Phin Sanctuary 110 kilometres square, a part of the Project Tiger.
Tours at the national park benefit enormously from the conservation work done over the past decades. Kahn’s most famous success is For the Swamp Deer Barasingha, which was rescued from near extinction from the park. The only people – of about 300 animals – resides in the park; it is a substantial improvement on the populace of 70 from the 1970s and an exceptional highlight. The population of Tigers in Kanha Is sufficiently established that sightings are virtually guaranteed on trips led by expert naturalists. The park is considered among the best places in India to observe the elusive cat. Travelling by jeep and elephant in the early morning and evening, wildlife fans will be treated to sightings in a range of natural habitats – as well as many other animal species.
Mammals flourish in kanha national park, including the iconic Swamp Deer and other deer species like the Sambar and Spotted Deer. Visitors are also treated to potential sightings of Leopard, Dhole Indian Wild Dog, Gaur and Sloth Bear, in addition to Wild Boar, Golden Jackal and several monkeys. Birds are found in profusion in many habitats, from the open state Indian Roller, Painted Francolin, Yellow- and Red-wattled Lapwings, to the forest-dwelling Black-headed Oriole and Malabar Pied Hornbill. Bird watching walks are possible beyond the boundaries of the book or an extension to the local Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary.

It features in Indian historical history as the Carminati, a name meaning ‘the river on whose banks leather is dried’. It is Also informed of in the Mahabharata.
