Panna National Park
Located in the Panna and Chhatarpur district of Madhya Pradesh, Panna National Park is the most important protected area in the north-central highlands of India. It was created in 1981 and was declared as a Project Tiger Reserve in 1994. A total area of 542.67 km2 is covered by the Panna National park. Panna is India’s 22nd Tiger Reserve and 5th in Madhya Pradesh.
The Ken River, flowing through the reserve from south to north, offers the most mesmerising landscape for tourists. The river is also home to Gharial and Mugger.
Apart from Tigers (Panthera tigris Tigris), who roam freely in this property, seven different species of vultures can be spotted in Panna, in their natural habitat. Other creatures such as leopard, wild dog, wolf, hyena and caracal, and smaller cats can be found in Panna. Sloth bear has his favourite home in the rock escarpments and undisturbed vales. The wooded areas are spotted with sambar- the largest of Indian deers, chital, and chousingha . Nilgal and Chinkara can be spotted in the open areas in the grasslands.
Madla and Hinata are the two major tourist entry zones in Panna. The royal history of this park dates back to the mid 17th Century AD when it became the capital of Maharaja Chhatrasal’s kingdom.
