From being a private hunting preserve of erstwhile rulers of Panna, Chhatarpur and Bijawar states to being declared a national park in 1981, Panna National Park is now a prominent Tiger Reserve and is the 22nd of its kind in India. Located a mere 25km away from the world heritage site of Khajuraho, Panna National Park has had a fair rise in prominence, attracting visitors who come in to the area for Khajuraho. A region known for its thriving diamond industry, its real gems are the majestic tigers that saunter across the uneven terrain through numerous varieties of trees and shrubs. Drive along the banks of Ken River keeping an eye on the banks for the mugger crocodile and the long snout gharial. Make sure your camera has enough memory space for multiple sightings of sambar, antelope, chital, leopard, wild dogs, wolves, hyenas and many more. Watch the sloth bear scraping rocky escarpments for its bare necessities, or look overhead for over 200 species of birds including the infamous King Vulture. The tigers here, however, are very elusive and only grace the view of those onlookers who are patient enough to wait. Listen to sounds of the jungle and track the tiger?s pugmarks through scorching summers and cool winters. Whether you come here for a quick stopover or for an adventure, Panna will not disappoint. Rent out a jeep andrumble across the dry mixed forest with surprises around every corner. Takea ride on the wild side, oneyou will never forget.
