Safari with the Team to Kanha National Park | Safari Leader: Sujatro Bhattacharyya

Kanha National Park is spread across an area of 1,949 sq. km, with dense vegetation and several rivers. This makes it one of the best habitats for wildlife in India. The prey density in Kanha is incredibly high, making it very good for tigers, wild dogs and leopards. It is also one of the last remaining strongholds of the Hardground Barasingha, which numbered just 66 in 1970 and today there are more than 500. Kanha is home to nearly 300 species of birds.

Kanha’s lush Sal and bamboo forests provided inspiration to Rudyard Kipling for his famous narrative, “The Jungle Books”.

Kanha is located in the Central Indian Highlands, which are part of the extensive tableland that forms India’s main peninsula. These were once an unending stretch of forests that formed a significant part of the country’s wilderness and wildlife habitats. These forests are now fragmented into parks such as Panna, Bandhavgarh, Kanha, Pench and Sanjay.

During this tour, your Safari Leader will teach you everything they know about wildlife, tracking, understanding the forest and of-course photography if you are interested in that. It will be a really fun experience, full of thrill, adventure and learning. This tour is not for photographers alone, it is for everyone who wants to explore our wild heritage, like never before!!

Experience Itinerary

Our tour will be for 3 nights and 4 days, with five safaris, one guided nature walk, hands-on learning and lots of fun, laughter and adventure. And what better place to do this than in the beautiful sal forests of Kanha National Park.

Parks across Madhya Pradesh now offer night safaris in the buffer zones. This is a fantastic way to explore the beauty of the night sky and also see some of the shy and nocturnal creatures such as sloth bear, civet cat, jungle cat, bengal fox, nightjar and if you are lucky then the leopard and tiger too. We have had many instances where guests on #SafariWithSuyash have seen big cats along with the rare civet cats and bengal fox.

Night safaris are subject to availability and cannot be booked ahead of time. They will be arranged at an additional cost during the tour itself, and the cost is split between the participants.
