Ken River Lodge, Panna National Park, Tiger Reserve, India

Panna National Park

Rated 3/5    

Panna, is located around 45 minutes’ drive east of the world famous temple town of Khajuraho and spreads over a landscape of rocky hills and ravines, covered by scrubby deciduous teak, bamboo and sal forest. The Ken River runs for about 55 km within the sanctuary. 

From safaris to boat rides from spotting crocodiles to tigers and sloth bears, Panna offers many exciting opportunities to the wildlife lover. Panna hosts a huge range of wildlife including tiger, jungle cat, leopard, hyena, wild dog, wolf and sloth bear. Along with many mammals, over 200 species of bird have been identified, which include a host of winter migratory birds. Panna is a first choice for birders. 
Panna has been flourishing with many young cubs spotted this season (May 2015) taking the total number of tigers in the park to 26. Although sightings are rare, the numbers are on the increase which is exciting.

Panna is accessible by flight from Delhi and Varanasi, followed by a short drive by private air conditioned vehicle. Combines well with a visit to Bandhavgarh.
