About Panna National Park

Panna National Park created history in Tiger conservation. Having lost all Tigers to systematic poaching from the year 2006 to 2008, it successfully relocated 3 tiger from other reserves in the year 2009. These Tigers made Panna their home, and today with dedicated efforts of Mr. Murthy the then Field Director the Tiger population has reached 55 Tigers (cubs included). This park is now home to Tigers, Leopards, Sloth Bears, Crocodiles, Gharials, over 300 species of birds, Deers, and monkeys. Apart from Jeep safaris, boat safaris are a good option to observe the Crocodiles and riverine birds in the Ken.

A diamond mine to India, this park has the amazing superpower to both thrill you and calm you. A boat ride on the Ken is all it takes to discover that the forest is indeed a gem hidden, harboring diversity in its belly, and protecting its land since the recent past of 2008. After years of poaching, Panna stands on the virgin grounds of a broad leaf dry deciduous forest.
