Day 18: KANHA

The moonlight was blocked out of the mouth of the cave, for Share Khan's great square head and shoulders were thrust into the entrance. The tiger's roar filled the cave with thunder. Mother Wolf shook herself clear of the cubs and sprang forward, her eyes, like two green moons in the darkness, facing the blazing eyes of Shere Khan – These extracts from The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling describe Kanha National Park for you.

Morning: Early in the morning tea / coffee will be served at the resort at the wake-up call. Go for Exclusive Jeep Safari into the jungles for Tiger Tracking by Open Gypsy (4WD) escorted by English speaking guide and local naturalist. Spotting wild animals is always a matter of luck but Kanha is so rich in wildlife that the odds are titled in your favor. First time visitors are often so keen to spot the larger animals that they overlook the smaller ones. There are 175 varieties of birds in Kanha. So if you happen to be bird watcher, look forward to a full bird show. After tiger viewing; return back to the Resort for breakfast and some rest.

Noon: Lunch will be served at the resort followed by yet another Game Viewing ride inside the Jungles by Open Gypsy. Most people are keener to meet Kanha's major attraction, the Tiger; still one has to be patient to spot one. But while on a mission to find a tiger, one can easily catch glimpses of all the grazers, a Porcupine, many Gray Langurs, Mongoose, Hyena, Jungle Cat, even a Leopard. Other wild attractions in this Tiger country include varieties of Deer - the Barasingha, Chital or Spotted Deer, Chousingha, Nilgai, as well as the majestic Gaur or Indian Bison and wild Pig. Return back to the resort later in the day after the Jungle Safari.

Evening: Tea / Coffee will be served at the resort. Enjoy the evening at your own. You have free time for leisure activities at the resort or visit the museum at Kanha depicting attributes and activities of the park and tribal culture. After dinner over bonfire you may go off to sleep.
