Kanha National Park

Kanha National Park is divided in to 12 ranges, but only three ranges are open for the tourists, and these are Kanha, Kisli, and Mukki ranges. People can enter into the park by two gates, the Khatia gate and the Mukki gate.

Kanha National Park was conceived in 1955 and is spread over an area of more than 935 square kilometers. It got recognized as a tiger reserve under Project Tiger in 1974. It is also considered as one of the most well maintained national parks in Asia.

Kanha National Park was exclusive hunting grounds for the British. These areas supported large numbers of the swamp deer or hardground Barasingha. When overhunting led to their numbers being depleted, the forests were closed to Shikar in 1931.

In 1933, Kanha valley was gazetted as a sanctuary with an area of about 250 square kilometers (96 square miles). In 1935, the adjoining Halon valley around Supkhar with an area of 300 squar kilometers (116 square miles) was given the status of a sanctuary and was attached to Kanha.

In Kanha National Park is Bamni Dadar (plateau), and most tourist who comes to the national park visit there. This place is also known as the sunset point. The Kanha National Park is at its scenic best at this point. The sunset from this spot is mesmerizing. The grazing sambhar, barking deer, gaurs, and other animals make the ambience magical.

Kanha Tiger Reserve is constituted on a “core-buffer” strategy. The entire national park area of 940 square kilometers is the core zone, free from biotic disturbances of any sort.

There is a buffer zone of 1,005 square kilometers falling in four forest divisions, Mandla, Balaghat, Kawardha, and Dindori, which surrounds the core zone.

This buffer zone is treated as a “multiple use area”, with 40 percent being forest area and the rest being revenue land. This total conservation unit encompassing 1,945 square kilometers (750 square miles) is called Kanha Tiger Reserve.

In the heart of Kanha, there is a museum which tells about the history of Kanha and the skeletons of the animals that have been found in Kanha. Tourists can read the reports in the museum. In the past, the museum was the rest house for the hunters, and now the room has been converted into the museum.

Kanha meadows is a good place to see tigers as most of the tigers share their territory in the meadows. Most of the tigers is seen in Kanha, and in the evening, tigers relax in the grassland under the trees to prtotect them from heat.

Bandhavgarh National Park

Bandhavgarh National Park is a wildlife sanctuary where history and nature meet. Set amidst the Vindhya ranges, the park has a series of ridges running through it. Bandhavgarh is very rich in forests and has the highest density of tigers in the world.

The terrain is broken, with rocky hill ranges, running roughly east west, interspersed with grassy swamps and forested valleys. Bandhavgarh has about 32 mammals, 250 birds and 72 butterflies providing an excellent outlet for tourists looking for adventure and wildlife.

Total coverage area of the park is 437 square kilometers (44,884 hectares or 168 square miles). In addition to the wildlife, Bandhavgarh also has a rich heritage. There are evidences of human settlements dating back to 2,000 years old and later rulers from the Kalchuri and the Baghel clans have left their rich culture for everyone to see.

Much of the park is covered in Sal forest, replaced by mixed forests in the higher elevations of the hills. There are extensive stands of bamboo and grasslands. More than 40 tigers are estimated to be living in the park.

It experiences winter from November to February, summer from March to mid-June and monsoon from mid-June to early October with an average annual rainfall of about 1,200 millimeters with temperature ranging from 2 degree Celsius to 44 degree Celsius.

A lot of migratory birds visit the park during the winter months from November to February. The foliage is mostly green and the weather is extremely pleasant.

March is a great month for wildlife viewing and the temperatures are not very high. During the summer months from April to June, as a lot of the water holes dry up, tiger sightings are relatively easier than in winter months.

Some of the best known locations of Bandhavgarh are as the Chakradhara Meadows, Rajbahera and Sidhbaba all fall in the Tala Zone. The Bandhavgarh Fort, the Shesh Shaiya and the ancient caves also fall in the Tala Zone. The grassy meadows of Tala are always great for tiger sightings.

Apart from tigers, jackals, the occasional sloth bear and the shy and elusive jungle cat are the predators that can be seen here. The Gopalpur pond in Tala is excellent for birds such as storks, kingfishers, and waterfowl. Tala is also very good for seeing and photographing vultures.

Magadhi zone offers good opportunities to see the tiger, wild dogs, and gaur among other wildlife and birds. The Khitauli zone is excellent for bird watching.
