Welcome to Panna Tiger Reserve
Tigers are making a comeback after being reintroduced in 2009 to Panna Tiger Reserve from other Madhya Pradesh reserves; there are now thought to be more than 35 tigers here. There's a fair chance of seeing leopards, sloth bears or tigers while on safari, but what this park really excels at is birdlife, with over 200 species recorded, including many waterbirds not easily seen in other parks. You can also enjoy a more diverse safari offering than in the region's bigger tiger parks and escape the confines of the safari 4WD to head out in a small boat on the crocodile-inhabited Ken (Karnavati) River. You can visit on an excursion from Khajuraho, or stay in one of the lodges near the reserve's main gate at Madla, 26km southeast of Khajuraho.
