Located in the heart of the country, Kanha National Park is a four hour drive from the nearest rail and air head, Jabalpur. If you are planning a visit to this amazing game reserve, home to Royal Bengal Tigers, it makes sense to pre-book everything, your accommodation, transportation, and even the game rides.

With only around 1400 tigers left in India, we laud the Forest Department of Madhya Pradesh for doing a commendable job of preserving these natural predators. Kanha National Park remains one of the biggest success stories of Project Tiger. We, as a country, still have a long way to go to protect our ecology. A presentation by Moumita Basu.
