Kanha National Park is one of the tiger reserves of India and the largest national park in the state of Madhya Pradesh. Located in the scenic Maikal Range of Madhya Pradesh, the Kanha National Park has, for the longest time, been a prime destination for tourists who are enthusiastic about nature and wildlife safaris. The fauna in the park and its wondrous setting served as inspiration for a young Kipling to write "The Jungle Book." Witness wildlife close to your jungle lodge by riding on a 4x4 open jeep safari and an elephant ride with a resident naturalist and forest guide.

Day 1: Delhi | Fly to Raipur | Kanha National Park

After breakfast, transfer to the airport to board the flight to Raipur. Upon arrival in Raipur, drive to Kanha.

The drive takes you through the rural countryside & colorful towns & villages. Stop in the sleepy town of Mandla, also known as the "Sacred city for Gond tribes, where the Narmada River, the second holiest to the Ganges, is the center of activity. En route and enjoys your picnic lunch & arrive at Kanha and check-in at Lodge.

Kanha National Park is located on The Chhota Nagpur Plateau in Madhya Pradesh. It provides breathtaking vistas of grassy plains and strands of sal forests. This 366 sq mile preserve is set to save two endangered species of Tiger and The Barasingha, also called swamp deer. This National park is one of the largest and most scenic and an ideal habitat for both tigers and their prey. These lush sal and bamboo forests, grassy meadows, and ravines of Kanha sheltered a significant population of rare species such as tigers, leopards, sloth bears, Barasingha, wild dogs, and other animals. Kanha's mixed forests are scattered with vast meadows known as maidens, and perennial streams run through several grasslands providing a source of water for wildlife even in the hot summers. 

Kanha is well known for its endangered swamp deer, or hard water barasingha, which populate the large open grass amidst the forests of teak and bamboo. Brought back from the brink of extinction, these handsome animals are a remarkable conservation success story for Kanha Sal trees, and open grasslands dominate the lowlands of Kanha. These grasslands, also known as maidans, are the outcome of Project Tiger's earlier relocation of settlements. These nationwide projects were started In 1971 to safeguard tigers and their habitat. One of its initiatives was to control man-animal conflict by moving villages from core areas into the buffer, and corridors can be linked once again. Hence, these maidens are live examples of successful relocation of villages which have now turned into grasslands allowing a successful growth of prey base for predators.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
