Kanha Wildlife

Kanha National Park

 

The experts have predicted, that if ever Tiger faces extinction, Kanha will be amongst the last strong foothold of Tigers. What is it about Kanha that makes it a perfect place for Tigers? To beginwith evergreen forest, lot of undergrowth that provides ambush. The rolling grasslands and meandering streams provide food for herbivores. If the prey has food, then it stays put, and the Predators follows. This 940 sq km of paradise is home to many Tigers, Leopards, Indian Gaur, Deers, Monkeys, Dholes, Jackals, voer 300 species of birds. Ccompared to many other parks, i (Sharad Vats) personally feel that tourism is well managed by the forest department of Kanha. If you are looking at a quality experience then this is a must visit park. The weather in Kanha is something you do not expect from a central Indian park. It will surprise you in peak of summers, the mornings will be nippy, and days pleasant under shade of a tree. The tall Sal trees do not allow the sun to touch the ground in a hurry.  

Kanha's sal and bamboo forests, rolling grasslands and meandering streams stretch over 940 sq km in dramatic Deer, Kanha National Park natural splendour. This is original Kipling country, of which he wrote so vividly in his Jungle Book. The same abundance of wildlife species exists today in Kanha National Park, which forms the core of the Kanha Tiger Reserve created in 1974 under Project Tiger. The park is the only habitat of the rare hardground barasingha (Cervus Duvaceli Branderi).


By a special statute in 1955, Kanha National Park came into being. Since then, a series of stringent conservation programmes for the protection of the park's flora and fauna has given Kanha its deserved reputation for being one of the finest and best administered National Parks in Asia, an irresistible attraction for all wildlife lovers and a true haven for its animal and avian population.


Best Season:

February to June, although the cool season is much more comfortable and still very good for wildlife. (The park is closed from July 1 to October 31 because of the monsoon). For those planning a visit, a stay of at least three nights is recommended in order to have a good chance of seeing the more elusive animals - although, of course, a brief visit will also be very interesting.


What to Wear
Cottons, but bring woollens as well, as early mornings and evenings can be chilly, especially in a moving jeep and in the cool season. Try not to wear loud colours.


Food
Kisli has a restaurant and a canteen. The restaurant serves both Indian and western food. The canteen is cheaper, serving reasonably-priced table d' hote meals and snacks. The Kanha Safari Lodge at Mukki is served by a multi-cuisine restaurant.
