Panna National Park Safari Booking

Panna National Park Safari 

The Vindhya Hill in northern Madhya Pradesh is home to the Panna Tiger Reserve and there you can witness a rare and captivating tiger habitat. Dynamic dry deciduous forest covers the entire area. Large plateaus and gorges are features of this terrain. It is a place with fascinating waterfalls, the great outdoors, magnificent archaeological sites, and a rich cultural heritage. Additionally, the Ken River runs through it, giving it an unrivaled beauty. Natural barriers, such as the teak forest in the north and the teak-Kardhai mixed forest in the east boards this property. Wild animal populations in the east and west are connected by the NE-SW-oriented Vindhya Hill ranges.

Along with his companion animals, the leopard, wild dog, wolf, hyena, and smaller cats, the tiger, the king of the jungle, freely roams. Sloth bears prefer to live in limestone escarpments and uninhabited valleys. Sambar, the largest Indian deer, chital, and chowsingha are all over the woodland areas. In most open regions of the grasslands, especially on the edges, one may clearly see Blue Bull and Chinkara.

Flora and Fauna

In Panna National Park, you can witness more than 200 kinds of birds in the avifauna, many of which are migratory. The place is home to a number of birds such as white-necked storks, Bar-headed gees, Honey Buzzards, Blossom-Headed Parakeets, Paradise Flycatchers, Slaty-Headed Scimitar Babblers, and 5 kinds of vultures. They all can be seen here.

Dry Teak and dry mixed forests have developed as a result of the combination of a dry, hot environment and shallow Vindhyan soils. Miscellaneous Dry Deciduous Forest interspersed with Grassland Areas is the predominant vegetation type. Riverine, open grasslands, open woodlands with tall grasses, and thorny woodlands are additional significant forest types.

Tree species including Tectona grandis, Diospyros melanoxylon, Madhuca indica, Buchnania latifolia, Anogeissus latifolia, Anogeissus pendula, Lanneacoro mandelic, Boswellia serrata, etc. are among the distinctive floral species of this region. Lantana camera, Grewia sp., Nyctanthusarbortristis, Ixora sp., Zyziphusmauritiana, Zyziphusoenoplea, etc. are some examples of important shrub species. Apludamutica, Themedaquadrivalvis, Meteropogoncontortus, Arishtida sp., etc. are the main grass species.

Safari Types

Open Jeep Safari

In all of the Panna Tiger Reserve’s zones, open Jeep safaris are easily accessible, however, you must schedule your safari in advance to ensure that the chosen gate will be open for greater big cat sightings.

Canter Safari

Canter Safari is well-known in the Madla zone. However, it is only advised that you go on a Canter Safari if you do not have a permit for the Open Jeep Safari.

Elephant Safari

Another tempting choice is the elephant safari. When you do your Panna National Park Safari Booking, make sure you do not miss out on this one. You can have an elephant ride and take a tour of the area to get up and personal with wild Panna family members, which is quite fascinating.

Night Safari in the Ganga region is ready to challenge and excite you if you happen to be an extremely daring person.

Panna National Park Safari Booking Procedure

Arrange a free consultation with one of our specialists to learn about the ideal safari zone to book based on your area of interest. If you want to book an all-inclusive safari package that includes airport transportation, lodging, meals, and internal transfers, Banzaara Travels can help you with all of it.

To secure the finest zones for sightings, it is advisable to organize your trip far in advance. If you need any help booking your Panna Safari and are unsure which gates to choose, please mail us or get in touch with Banzaara Travels.
