Well Done !

Did not see the Magnificent Tiger. However was extremely satisfied with the manner in which the night and day tours are organised. There are strict rules in place to preserve the national park and its inhabitants. Happy to see that.

Like going on safari only in India.
Feb 2020
This is a nice park. The park was well maintained and the guides picked up even the smallest piece of trash we came across which is unlike any place outside the park. They take great care to protect the animals. We even had to complete a questionnaire about recent travel to China because they were concerned we could transmit the coronavirus to the animals. We didn’t see a tiger on our drives, but we heard one growl. We saw a leopard, a jungle cat, a sloth bear, various types of deer, many varieties of birds, wild boar, etc.

I spent 3 days in Panna National Park. We made morning and afternoon game drives every day. It was great safaris with our naturalist guide Jaipal SINGH (in Serai at Toria Lodge) who has an exceptional knowledge on mammals and birds, allowing us to see:
- predators, including: 1) tigers (T141 and T151), leopards (female with cub), sloth bears and golden jackals. Since tigers reintroduction conducted by the famous scientist Raghu CHUNDAWAT in 2009, there are now more than 50 tigers (adults and cubs) in Panna national park!
- other mammals, e.g.: sambar deers, chitals, four horned antelopes, muntjacs, wild pigs…
- plenty of very beautiful birds and raptors
- crocodiles
We also performed night game drive, allowing to see nocturnal animals (e.g.: stripped hyenas, leopards) and birds (thick knees, nightjars,…)
Moreover, the landscape in the park are wonderful and various varied (areas of savannahs, forests and scenic gorges (with vultures living on their rocky slopes).
Taken together, I highly recommend to visit Panna National Park, with few jeeps in the surroundings (disturbing animals).

No Tiger Sighting but Good Fun Day Out
Jan 2020
We went out for two drives and although we saw a lot of tiger prey we did not spot a tiger or a leopard. We did glimpse a sloth bear and saw many birds and forms of antelope. Monkeys and wild boar were also spotted. The picnic in the wild during the morning drive was great and they are building proper restrooms as I write this. The guide was fantastic with a good sense of humor and incredible knowledge.

Indulge in wild life
Dec 2019
It was quite interesting for kids & adults both to see a variety of wild life with open gyp safari to Panna National Park. Spotted dears, peacocks, bears, pigs, monkeys, leopards, nilgay...Make sure to book early during holiday seasons...55 tigers roam in this jungle but we were not so lucky to spot one

An enjoyable place
Dec 2019
Although access to Panna Tiger Reserve is somewhat problematic because the nearest railway station (Satna) about 110 ms away and the nearest airport (Khajuraho) has only a few flights, it is well worth the extra effort. It has a variety of habitats - from wide grasslands to deep gorges, to fairly thick forest with bamboo thickets near the meandering streams. As a consequence it harbours a variety of wildlife from sambar deer, to blue bull, chinkara and four-horned antelope to the tiger and leopard. Though it had lost all its tigers to poachers by 2008, Panna has made a remarkable come-back with tiger re-located from Bandhavgarh and Kanha and breeding successfully. But seeing tigers or leopards is not an open-and-shut matter and one may have to take 4/5 safari trips to see one. The best part of tiger sighting in Panna (as of now) is that there are usually not more than 5/6 jeeps around unlike the crowds of 30-35 jeeps at Tadoba or Bandhavgarh. That makes it all the more enjoyable.

Super staff & beautiful place
Dec 2019 • Family
Unlike other Safari in this safari there is no restriction on the path you take. Honest spotter & driver who want you to have beautiful experience of the jungle. I had lost my wallet while on safari which was found by a local worker & was returned back to me as it is to me. Our naturist was from Taj Sangita who made us very comfortable with spotter once was Kailash & Arvind next time. They have great staff & wide variety of wild life. Managed to spot sloth bear, hyena, jackal & crocodile on Ken river coast. Would recommend to take once evening & once morning safari to have full experience of the jungle

Wow! Another great nature preserve
Nov 2019 • Friends
India has lots to offer in terms of wildlife viewing and Panna turned out to be just wonderful. Tigers, leopards, many other mammals and loads of birds are around the park. It was exciting to see a tiger but truly there is much more to see so don’t go in single minded. In fact there are incredible viewpoints if you drive further into the park and up the hills there is an area that during the rains has huge waterfalls but equally spectacular cliffs when dry.
We found when the jeeps congregated around a potential tiger sighting area it was a bit annoying so keep an open mind about the beauty of all the wildlife (not just tigers) and you will really enjoy yourself.
