KanhaKanha, located in Madhya Pradesh, Central India is one of India's finest reserves. It inspired Rudyard Kipling's epic, the Jungle Book. Home to amazing variety of animals in different habitat, Kanha National Park stands brilliantly in a group of few reserves of gene pool of Indian Flora 'n' Fauna.

The Kanha forest is a unique experience, as the rich tree cover interspersed with open grasslands allows for a rich animal population density similar in scope to the animal rich National Parks of Africa.

Stretching over 940 sq kms (363 sq miles), Kanha promises a unique and satisfying experience. Its forests retain a grandeur of wilderness rarely found elsewhere and is unparalleled with its variety of mammals and birds. It is one of the most well maintained National Parks in Asia and a major attraction for wildlife lovers all over the world. Over the years animals of Kanha have become bolder and more confident, making the park excellent for wildlife viewing and photography.

Project Tiger has yielded remarkable results, from around 48 tigers at the beginning of the Project Tiger, Kanha now boasts around 100 tigers, making it the best place in the world to see tiger. The Kanha National Park also happens to be the sole habitat of the rare hardground Barasingha or Swamp Deer (Cervus durauceli branderi) which has been rescued from the very brink of extincti.

Overall a great tiger and wildlife rescue.
