India > Kanha National Park


Kanha National Park, created in 1955, is considered as Indian’s greatest park and hosts many mammals and bird species. There is a mixture of lowland and highland forests, which are tropical dry deciduous types with bamboo slopes. A very good looking Indian ghost tree (kullu) can also be seen in the dense reserve. Herds of animals are found in the central parklands where approximately 22 animal species are spotted, including the more unique species such as the three-striped palm squirrel, common langur, jackal, wild pig and black buck-striped hyena, leopard mouse deer and porcupine. Besides the Project Tiger, the park is also home of the highly endangered deer. Kanha features approximately 70 tree species and is a bird watcher’s paradise with over 200 recorded bird species.
