Kanha Bandhavgarh Pench Packages

Kanha: Formerly a national park and now a tiger reserve as well, the wilderness of Kanha is among the hot spots of wildlife lovers with all the elements of Nature on the display. Like Pench National Park, Kanha is also associated with The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, as the fundamental elements of both the parks are similar. Kanha-Pench corridor is in fact one of the most important area facilitating tiger dispersal and thus contributing in natural behavior of these exotic felids for gaining new territory or extending the present one.

 

Bandhavgarh: The Tiger Reserve with highest density of the national animal of India is none other than Bandhavgarh National Park. Situated in the Umaria District of the state of Madhya Pradesh, the wilderness is also known for the spotting of white tigers, the very first of which was hunted by the Maharaja of Rewa in 1951.  Serving as a game sanctuary for the rulers of the princely states of the areas around the jungle, the park now has sustained conservation efforts to keep the population of the stripped cats in healthy state.

 

Pench: The national Park is known for its spectacular beauty and wilderness, but more than that, it is known for being the inspirational ground for the Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book with its main character Mowgli. The districts which this national park covers are Seoni and Chindwada in the state of Madhya Pradesh.

Kanha National Park : Kanha's sal and bamboo forests, rolling grasslands and meandering streams stretch over 940 sq km in dramatic natural splendor. This is original Kipling country, of which he wrote so vividly in his Jungle Book. The same abundance of wildlife species exists today in Kanha National Park, which forms the core of the Kanha Tiger Reserve created in 1974 under Project Tiger. The park is the only habitat of the rare hardground barasingha (Cervus Duvaceli Branderi). In the 1930s, the Kanha area was divided into two sanctuaries: Hallon and Banjar, of 250 sq km and 300 sq km each. Though one of these was subsequently disbanded, the area remained a protected one until 1947. Depletion of the tiger population in the years that followed led to the area being made an absolute sanctuary in 1952. By a special statute in 1955, Kanha National Park came into being. Since then, a series of stringent conservation programmes for the protection of the park's flora and fauna has given Kanha its deserved reputation for being one of the finest and best administered National Parks in Asia, an irresistible attraction for all wildlife lovers and a true haven for its animal and avian population.
