Elephant Safari

Elephant Safari is another adventurous way to explore Kanha National Park. Tourists prefer elephant backs because inaccessible areas can also be explored. It happens in the morning hours and only for four people. It lasts for 10 to 15 minutes or a full-day safari, depending on the kind of slot you have booked in advance.

Safari booking procedure

You can book Kanha Safari tickets in two ways: online and offline. For online bookings, Banzaara Travels will assist you with all the details and ensure a smooth process. Tickets are also available at the entrance of Kanha National Park, but only if there are spots left. Remember, a separate ticket is needed for the Jeep safari.

There is a limit to the number of vehicles allowed in the forest during each shift.

From March to June, it functions from 6 AM to 10 AM and in the afternoon from 3 PM to 6 PM. The safari doesn’t function on Wednesday evenings, Holi, Diwali, and during the monsoon.

Safari zones

  • Mukki Zone

Mukki is the most popular zone because it is favourable for tiger spotting and other wildlife sightings. Here, you can look out for Tigers, Hard Ground Swamp Deer, Indian Bison, Wild Dogs, and Leopards. Even the water streams are home to many water birds. This territory is less hilly and has marshy grasslands at Sounder and Bishanpura.

  • Kanha Zone

Kanha is the premium zone, as tourists need to pay extra fees to do a safari here. This zone is consistent with the Sal belt, mixed forests, grassy meadows, and abundant water bodies like Sarvan Taal. The meadows are preferable for tiger safaris because there are maximum tiger spottings here. You can also enjoy elephant rides and tiger shows in this zone.

  • Kisli Zone

The Kisli Zone lies adjacent to the Kanha Zone and has a similar habitat. Although these meadows are smaller, tiger sightings are equally good. This road also leads to the Bhamni Dadar sightseeing point. The Nakti is apt for bird watching and offers a chance to see tigers in dense forests.

  • Sarhai Zone

Sarai Zone is a newer addition to the tourism infrastructure at Kanha. Here, you will find dense mixed forests that are scenic. However, this gate does not have accommodations; therefore, tourists stay at the Khatia village. The entry for the tiger safari in the Sarhai zone is through the Khatia Gate, which is also used for entry into the Kanha and Kisli Zones. Here, you will find the Nilgai or Blue Bull antelope alongside tigers.

Flora and fauna

The flora and fauna of Kanha National Park are magnificent. There are more than 1000 species plant species found here. This includes sal, bamboo, mixed forest trees, meadows, climbers, herbs, and shrubs. There are also aquatic plants in the lakes. The flora includes tiger, leopard, bison, gaur, and exquisite deer species. The wildlife present here includes barasingha, blackbuck, and swamp deer. Other animals like foxes, hyenas, honey badgers, Indian wolves, sloth bears, wild boars, jungle cats, langurs, and macaques can also be found.

Do’s and don’ts

  • Kindly keep a safe distance from the animals.

  • Do not litter, and keep the park pollution-free. Carry a litter bag and dump all your non-biodegradable litter into the bag
  • You should hire guides well before the exploration tour of the national park.
  • Do not smoke in the forest, as accidental fires are known to destroy the natural habitat of wildlife species.
