Reasons to go to Panna

1To find Pandava caves inside a National Park
To find Pandava caves inside a National Park

HolidayIQ Reviewer Saranya Devanathan shares, “One has to book a gypsy to go to Panna...The park opens at 5:30 am. Better to start before 5 am since it is 40 km from Khajuraho. It is very cold and to avoid the frostbite, it is advisable to carry an ointment. One has to pack breakfast from the hotel and take it with them as nothing except hot tea is available at the national park...Pandava caves are definitely worth a visit.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Lakshmi Sharath adds, “Beautiful forest but pray for sightings. You can spot bears here and they are really adorable creatures. Chital, nilgai, sambhar pose for you. The River Ken flows through the forest. You can also spot lots of raptors and vultures besides black storks and other water and jungle birds. You can spot crocodiles in the water as well. Wear warm clothes for the safaris. Carry a mask and cover your cameras as there is a lot of dust. Bring a water bottle with you.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nivedith Gajapathy says, “Panna National Park is located in Madhya Pradesh, this national park is 50 km from Khajuraho. Apart from the leopard, the sloth bear is the main attraction here and you can find them in their natural habitat.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Monica Rai adds, “An African jungle safari experience in India! It is like none other in its natural beauty. The Ken River which flows across the forest is a natural wonder and is breathtaking too. It besieges a plethora of fauna and flora. The wildlife is vulnerable yet untouched by the effects of modern civilization, in complete harmony with nature's balance. The topography of the forest changes from region to region. It sometimes appears like the Savannah in Africa and like the Amazon on the other. The crocodiles in their unique environment display acts of amusement and fury. ”

5Proud hunters, Pardhis of Panna
Proud hunters, Pardhis of Panna

Panna, a land of forests, ravines, gorges and rivers, ruled by the Tiger. This collage of landscapes and treasure trove of wildlife is also home to the nomadic Pardhi tribe. Evitced from the forest, first for dimond mining and then when the national park was created, these people are fiercely protective of their pride. Mainly subsisting on hunting and sporadic farming they worship forest gods and have a very inclusive social life.

Monica: It is like none other in its natural beauty. The Ken River which flows across the forest is a natural wonder and is breathtaking too. It besieges a plethora of fauna and flora. The wildlife is vulnerable yet untouched by the affects of modern civilization, in complete harmony with nature's balance.

A gem in itself

Panna is known throughout the world for it's diamond mines but it won't be an overstatement to say that Panna is a gem in itself. Ken river flows through this lovely place and the Panna Tiger Reserve is an attraction for every wildlife lover. The bio-diversity in this national park is very rich. Other than the powerful and huge tigers & leopard, the park also has wolves, chitals, sloth bears, chinkara and sambar. There are about 300 different varieties of birds which make this national park a must visit for every ornithologist.

We stayed the Jungle camp right next to the Tiger reserve. The hotel had every possible amenity that one could think of and yet retained the charm of camping. Food at the in-house restaurant is worth trying!
