Located in the Mandla and Balaghat districts of Madhya Pradesh, India, Kanha National Park is a wild life sanctuary and virtually a tiger land, with several tigresses occupying traditionally famous natal areas. Kanha National Park was created on 1 June, 1955 and today it stretches over an area of 940 square kilometres.
The most precious animal of Kanha is the Central Indian Barasingha. This Swamp deer is the last world population of the hard ground subspecies, which has virtually been saved from extinction owing to concerned efforts under Project Tiger. Other common animals found in the reserve are leopard, spotted deer, sambar, wild pigs, grey langur and more than 300 species of birds. Shravan Tal, Shravan Chita, Macha Dongar, Bamni Dadar, grasslands of Mukki and Sonf are some of the major places of attractions out here.
