Panna tiger reserve


Panna is the twenty second Tiger Reserve of India and fifth in Madhya Pradesh . The reserve is situated in the Vindhyan Ranges and spreads over Panna and Chhatarpur districts in the north of the Madhya Pradesh state in India.

Panna National Park was created in 1981 and was declared a Project Tiger Reserve by Government of India in 1994. The National Park consists of areas from the former Gangau Wildlife Sanctuary created in 1975. This sanctuary comprised of territorial forests of the present North and South Panna Forest Division to which a portion of the adjoining Chhatarpur forest division was added later.


The reserved forests of the Park in Panna district and some protected forests on Chhatarpur side were the hunting preserves of the erstwhile rulers of Panna, Chhatarpur and Bijawar princely states in the past.


The Ken river , which flows through the Reserve from south to north, is home for Gharial and Mugger, and other aquatic fauna and is one of the least polluted rivers and a tributary of Yamuna. It is one of the sixteen perennial rivers of Madhya Pradesh and is truly the life line of the Reserve. Ken offers some of the most spectacular scenery to the visitor while it meanders for some 55 km through the reserve.

The terrain of the reserve is characterized by extensive plateaus and gorges. The reserve can broadly be divided into three distinct tablelands on Panna side: the upper Talgaon Plateau, the middle Hinnauta plateau and the Ken valley. Series of undulating hills and plateaus rise on the other side of Ken river in Chhatarpur district.


The best time to visit the park is during the months of January to May. The best time to visit the park is early morning, and drive in an open jeep through the thick, wild vegetation.
