About Kanha & Pench National park

Kanha is tucked away in the Eastern part of the Central-Indian Satpura Range. Legendary for its wilderness and tiger sightings, the reserve was immortalized by Rudyard Kipling, who set his 1894 Jungle Book adventure of Mowgli in these very forests. The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), the world's premier conservation institute, have rated Kanha as the best managed park in Asia. It stretches over an area of 940 km² in the two districts Mandla and Balaghat. Together with a surrounding buffer zone of 1009 km² and the neighboring 110 km² Phen Sanctuary it forms the Kanha Tiger Reserve.

Immensely rich in game, Kanha has the distinction of harboring the last of the highly endangered Hard Ground Barasingha. The vast size of the park makes extended explorations possible and Kanha is a favourite with photographers for its sheer quality of wildlife viewing. Tiger sightings are frequent and meadows abound with large herds of Chital and Barasingha. The park is also a good place to see the Leopard, Sloth Bear, Asiatic Wild Dog and Indian Bison.

About Pench Tiger Reserve

Pench Tiger reserve is fondly recalled as the true Kipling country-it is named after the Pench river which flows across the entire park.Pench's claim to a wild tiger country comes from the fact that it has the highest density of herbivore population like the chital, Sambhar etc.. The excellent prey base keeps the Tiger population at a healthy level- sighting the Tiger in all its glory is what makes Pench one of the most beautiful teak jungles of central India.

It is also makes excellent Leopard habitat and is one of few places where Leopard sightings are not out of order. It shot to celebrity status when the BBC wildlife team filmed the brilliant documentary "Tiger- Spy in the Jungle" detailing the life of tigers in Pench.
