Overall amazing experience, mesmerizing jungle,second to none , comparable to corbett with plenty of Animals as well as birds.
Even with kids we were able to spot tigers, we saw almost all kinds of animals including panther.

TravelGleam Wild (9958993316 , 9899954675) were very professional right from the beginning and they provided us with seamless services for safari, mentioning there number also,As your Driver and guide matters the most during a jungle safari.

We did 4 morning safari,you can spot a tiger anytime in a jungle a however the best time to see the Big cat is early morning 5 to 7 ,after 7 your chances of spotting one gets thin specially during Summers.

it is a life time experience, specially if you get to see the tiger upclose.

The forest is beautiful- green even in summer. Lovely place. The museum is also Great for kids ,i will certainly plan again during winters this time.

Kanha is a beautiful forest and I love coming here. This is our 3rd visit and 10th safari at kanha. I have given this rating not to the forest but for the GUIDE MR YADAV. He is a man of few words but only with guests. He kept on talking with the driver..He had poor judgements and seemed to talkative with other drivers and guide as well but less about sightings and more jokes.he did not have the sense of sighting or the interest of showing us anything. He did not have any keen interest neither did he give us any information about the forest flora and fauna.
Inspire of knowing the female tigress Naina and her cubs will be seen (where she had hunted for a bison) and there will be movement he kept wasting time here n there. My husband spotted a monitor lizard (ghotak) but d driver didn’t notice it..as he was busy talking and sitting with his black sun glasses. He only showed us peacocks and Barasingha which were anyways very evidently seen
We have never been disappointed with Kanha if we had a tiger sighting or No but this time the guide disappointed us terribly with his attitude.

Overall nice experience, beautiful jungle with plenty of Animals as well as birds.
Kanha is famous for the tigers, we saw almost all kinds of animals.

It's a good place to rejuvenate and spend time with friends and family.
The jungle safari is little costly but it is a good one time experience, specially if you get to see the tiger.

The forest is beautiful- green even in summer. Lovely place. The museum has some interesting stuff too.

1. We (visited Kanha National Park between 13th May to 15th May 2022 (for 2N / 3D). And stayed at a resort on Mukki side of the jungle.
2. Mukki is about 190 kms (3.5 to 4 hours) from Jabalpur and 190 kms (5 to 6 hours) from Raipur and 240 kms (5 to 6 hours) from Nagpur
3. The morning safari starts at 5.30 am and ends at 11.30 am (duration of almost 5 hours)
4. The afternoon safari starts at 4 pm and ends at 6.45 pm (duration of 2hours and 45 minutes only).
5. The safari charges comprise of the following elements Online booking charges + Gypsy charges + Guide charges. The charges for weekend (SAT & SUN) are Rs 3050+3000+500 = Rs 6550/- for Indian tourists. The charges for a weekday (MON to FRI) are Rs 2400+3000+500 = Rs 5900/-. The guide charges can be Rs 600/- if a Senior Guide accompanies you for the safari.
6. The charges for the morning safari and afternoon safari are the same even though the duration of the afternoon safari is shorter.
7. Kanha National Park (KNP) is divided into 4 zones i.e. Kanha / Mukki / Kisli / Sarhi.
8. One can book for entry from Mukki gate and opt (at time of online booking) for safari in Mukki zone or Kanha zone or Kisli zone. Please note that one has to travel around 25 kms from Mukki gate through the forest to reach the Kanha zone. SO IF YOU ARE STAYING IN MUKKI, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO BOOK MOST OF YOUR SAFARIS IN MUKKI ZONE.
9. Please book your hotel for stay closer to the gate from which majority of your safaris are booked.
10. Currently the tigers getting sighted in Mukki Zone are DB3 (male tiger / DJ (female tigress Dhawa Jhandi / MV 3 (female tigress with 2 month old cubs) / Choti Mada (with 4 month old cubs) and a couple of other tigers
11. In Kanha zone Tigress Neelam (with sub adult cubs) / male tiger Bajrang / Tigress Naina (with cubs) and a couple of other tigers are getting sighted
12. We managed to see the Tigress DJ (Dhawa Jhandi) and male tiger DB3.
13. The sightings of tigers are lesser as compared to other National Parks in Central India. Kanha National Park is a beautiful forest. Do enjoy the forest and the other inhabitants like the Barasingha / Jackals / Dholes / Indian Gaur / Vultures / Orioles / Serpent Eagles etc
14. Kanha NP is much more beautiful to visit during the winter months of Nov to Feb. The forest is dense and greener during this period. Some of gthe best sightings of the tiger happens during this period when the tiger can be seen walking on the road / close to the road (unlike the summers where the tigers are often seen resting near the water hole or cooling itself in the water holes.

This is the largest national park in Central India. A must visit destimation. The park is full of variety of animals. We got to see, Tigers (twice in our 3 safaris), Barasinghas, Gaurs, Jackals, Wild Boars, Monkeys, Barking Deer, Peacocks and peahens, Vultures, Eagles, Kingfisher, thousands of spotted deers (Chital), Sambhar deers and some more.

The park is very well maintained and regularly patrolled. Some of the guides are highly informed, The drivers are quite disciplined. They have designated canteens, toilets and souvenir shops (very clean) inside the park.

We loved it through and through and would love to return someday.

Safari bookings can be made through the MP forest department's website. The vehicle and guides can be arranged by your hotel itself. I stayed in MPT Safari Lodge Mukki who arranged everything for us. These days maximum tiger sightings are in Mukki Zone. We sighted one in Mukki Zone and the other in Kisli Zone. Didn't get lucky in Kanha Zone.

Sambar, Barasingha, Barking deer, Spotted deer, Black Buck, Chital, Wild boar, Gaur, Langur, Leopard, Sloth Bear and Tiger. It is very nice is really good for bird watching, I recommend spending your money to go here.

Probably the best forest in India when it comes to its natural beauty. You instantly fall in love with the jungle. Sighting a tiger becomes an icing on the cake. Was able to spot the wild cats and enjoy the forest as well. I stayed @club Mahindra and booked my safaris through TravelGleam Wild (9958993316 , 9899954675). The process was smooth and reliable and Saurabh was very responsive . Did Mukki and Kanha zone morning 6:15-11:30. But sighting a tiger is luck and patience. So don't get discouraged if you don't. Just enjoy the beautiful forest. Airtel and Jio provide best connectivity whole Vodafone struggles. You don't need to pack too much breakfast as all zones have center points where snacks are available and you are not allowed to eat while sightings anyways. The Binoculars on rent really help for those far sightings.

My friends and I visited Kanha over NYE 2021-22. It was our first ever jungle safari experience. Being in the forest, the fresh air, it was beautiful in itself. Honestly though, we were keen on seeing a tiger. After s near miss on our first safari, we spotted Junior Bajrangi on January 1, making it a great start to our (otherwise dull so far) year!

We used the help of an agency to book safari permits and gypsies - TravelGleam Wild (Sourabh Garg- 9958993316 , 9899954675). It was a smooth experience.

Accommodation - We stayed at MPT Bagheera Jungle Resort. The facilities and service here are decent, the food can be better. We opted for the river facing AC Deluxe rooms based on other Trip Advisor reviews, which have an attached balcony.

The entire safari experience depends on how good the guide is (guides are allotted randomly at the gates). We thankfully got a great guide for Safari #2, and should have tried to keep him with us for the next day's safari also (there is a way to pay extra and do this). Being first timers, we did not know this earlier but will not repeat our mistake next time. There will definitely be a next time for we enjoyed the thrill of the jungle!
It was great to see female gypsies and guides as well, hopefully we will see more women workers in the jungle soon.

What is worth appreciating is the tremendous effort put in by the forest department in reviving the almost extinct population of Barasingha, There is a breeding facility here and total population has risen to 800. There is a plan to introduce them in Bandhavgarh NP.
