Hard Ground Barasingha, the state animal and specialty of Kanha National Park, is found in a large density in Kanha Tiger Reserve. This species was almost extinct from the world. It was the sheer effort of the forest department which has brought their population to over 500 barasinghas. Kanha National Park is blessed with around 100 tigers, 80 sloth bears, 145 leopards, 43 mammal species, 300 bird species, 500 insect species, and 26 reptile species.
There are 8 tourism zones in Kanha National Park. The buffer zone consists of Khapa, Khatia, Phen and Sijora, and the core zone has Kanha, Kisli, Sarhi, and Mukki zones. Mukki and Khatia are two gates for jungle safari. Khatia gate has flexibility to choose other core areas in each shift.

There is no such facility in core areas of Kanha National Park. There are only a few small guest houses at the entry gate and you can book them from the department office.

Both Khatia and Mukki gates have private hotels. Kanha National Park opens from October 1 to June 30 and remains closed in July, August and September. On Wednesday, evening safari is not available. In addition, the park also remains closed on the occasion of Holi in March.

There are basically three categories of jungle safari in Kanha –

Normal Safari – There are 6-seater Jeeps available in Kanha for jungle safari and only 2 canters (an open bus with 20 seats). The canter and jeep safaris are available in two shifts only. Kanha morning safari is usually longer and lasts till 11 AM, while Kanha evening safari is shorter and fewer jeeps are permitted.

Note – Jeeps are mainly booked on an exclusive basis in Kanha National Park. You can also book jeep safari on an individual seat basis. You have to go to the entry gate because jeeps won’t pick you up at the hotel. In case of individual passengers, if there are fewer than 6 passengers, the rest of the passengers will contribute the total cost of the safari.

Tatkal Safaris – These safaris can be booked in premium zones. There is no specific number of jeeps available in this category. In this quota, you can book only those jeeps which were cancelled. The tatkal quota opens at 5 PM for the next morning and afternoon. Keep in mind that the cost is a bit higher than advance booking or normal quota jeeps.

Premium Safaris – There is no concept of half-day safari in Kanha. The national park offers only full-day safaris in the premium category. You can explore all zones in this category but it is a bit costly. You also need to contact the Field Director for special permission.

Jeep safari in Kanha is available from October 16 to June 30. The park remains closed for tourists during monsoons.

I recently traveled with MP Tour Packages and had a fantastic experience overall. The hotel was super comfortable, the food was delicious, and the places we visited were amazing. However, the cab service was not up to par, and I hope that they can improve this aspect of their service in the future. Nonetheless, I highly recommend MP Tour Packages for their excellent travel packages and wonderful destinations. Last but not the least, special thanks to @kshma 💕
