Tiger Tours IndiaWhile this lushly forested country is immediately familiar to readers of Rudyard Kipling, it has also recently been the site of extensive research on the ecology of tigers, deer, langour, Barasingha deer, gaur and wild dogs.

North of Kanha is Bandhavgarh National Park where the first white tiger was captured and most of the white tigers in captivity have descended from that tiger. In former times Bandhavgarh was the exclusive hunting preserve of the Mharaja of Rewa. Tigers are looked for on elephant back and their sighting is good. Past history pervades the forest in the form of immense sculpture of the Hindu god Vishnu, caves and a fort. Both the National Parks are country's prime Tiger Reserve under Tiger project.

Not far from Bandhavgarh are the Temples of Khajuraho. They are the Master pieces of Temple architecture. Of the temples many have exquisitely and explicity carved scenes from Kamasutra. Build in the 10th to 11th century by the chandella dynasty, they are in a marvelous state of preservation.

Tiger Tours IndiaKanha National Park : Kanha's sal and bamboo forests, rolling grasslands and meandering streams stretch over 940 sq km in dramatic natural splendor. This is original Kipling country, of which he wrote so vividly in his Jungle Book. The same abundance of wildlife species exists today in Kanha National Park, which forms the core of the Kanha Tiger Reserve created in 1974 under Project Tiger. The park is the only habitat of the rare hardground barasingha (Cervus Duvaceli Branderi). In the 1930s, the Kanha area was divided into two sanctuaries: Hallon and Banjar, of 250 sq km and 300 sq km each. Though one of these was subsequently disbanded, the area remained a protected one until 1947. Depletion of the tiger population in the years that followed led to the area being made an absolute sanctuary in 1952. By a special statute in 1955, Kanha National Park came into being. Since then, a series of stringent conservation programmes for the protection of the park's flora and fauna has given Kanha its deserved reputation for being one of the finest and best administered National Parks in Asia, an irresistible attraction for all wildlife lovers and a true haven for its animal and avian population
