Overview

Recommended for Age Group 10 - 16 years.

Panna, the Emerald Forest of India, is home to the rare and exotic flora and fauna of India. Located in the Panna and Chhatarpur districts of Madhya Pradesh, the national park hosts some of the most scenic views in the country. One of the crowning glories of Panna is its successful reintroduction of tigers in the reserve. From 2 tigers in 2009 to more than 40 tigers at present, Panna is a true inspiration for active nature conservation. Take a trip through this land of the Chital, Chinkara, Nilgai, amongst the dense jamun, Sal, and crocodile bark trees.  The grassland areas are home to the tiger, leopard, chital, chinkara, nilgai, sambhar and sloth bear. The park also has over 200 species of birds including the Peregrine falcon, Oriental Honey buzzard, eagles and vultures.

Another characteristic feature of the Panna National Reserve is the active involvement of the local Pardhi community in the conservation efforts of the park. The once poachers have now turned protectors and contribute immensely towards preserving the biodiversity of the national park. Grab this unique opportunity to explore the offbeat shades of Panna with us this summer!
