Kanha is famous for
Wildlife at it's best !!
I had done my stay booking with Club Mahindra Kanha which is a RCI affiliated property.
We drove through Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh States with overnight halt at Betul and arrived at the resort on the 13th.
On the 15th, we took a early morning, 06:15 hrs, Kanha Tiger Safari (Sarai region, core sector). It was a guided, open top SUV, 4 hour ride through the protected jungle. Deers, Antelopes, Barasingas, Spitsbergen deers, wild boars and variety of birds were sighted in abundance. We did see lone tiger - it was walking away from us. It was so thrilling and educating experience indeed.
Next day we planned a trip to Bhedaghat, which is a Cliffy area through which river Narmada flows. The cliffs are of marble and the view is breathtaking! One traverses this section in a row boat and it lasts for an hour. Rowers also act as a guide and they do a great job of it. Dhuandar waterfalls is nearby and attracts loads of tourists.
Club Mahindra Kanha resort is an apartment stay facility which is 5 star property. We stayed in a 1 bedroom serviced apartment with kitchenette.
There are many resorts in the vicinity. State tourism department also has a resort here and they conduct Tours to many destinations in MP.
This was a relaxing and endearing experience for all of us! Highly recommend this destination.
Lovely place in nature's lap

History of Kanha
During the British rule in India, the areas of Banjar and Halon served as a hunting ground and according to records, Kanha housed a large population of Swamp Deer or better known in India by the name of Hard-ground Barasingha. However, hunting here was prohibited in the year 1931 due to heavy decline in the population of deer. It was after this that development of Kanha as a wildlife sanctuary started, and by the year 1935, expansion of the sanctuary started by attaching the neighbouring area of Supkhar with Kanha.
