Resorts in Kanha Tiger Reserve

Dyna Resorts

Kanha is in Madhya Pradesh (five hours drive from Jabalpur and six hours from Nagpur) has some times been called the N'Gorongoro of India. The simile is apt, albeit Kanha is far greener and its cordon of hills far more densely wooded. Unlike Tanzania's N'Gorongoro, the Kanha Valley is not a volcanic crater, though the enclosing hills are a consequence of geologically ancient volcanic activity. Herds of the Kanha miscellany, the axis deer (Chital), the Swamp deer (Barasingha), the Blackbuck (Hiran), the wild pig and occasionally the Gaur, throng the central park land of the valley, providing the basis for the comparison with N'Gorongoro. With its confiding herds and relatively tolerant predators, Kanha offers an almost unrivaled scope to a keen tourist of Indian wildlife. The forests of the Banjar Valley and the Halon valley, respectively forming Kanha's Western and Eastern halves, had, even at the turn of the Century, been long famous for their deer and tiger.
