We hereby present you our Panna Outing.

Panna National Park was established in the year 1981 and officially declared a tiger reserve in 1994, Panna National Park is spread over 542.67 sq km. The sanctuary was formed out of the hunting reserves of the former princely states of Panna, Chhatarpur, and Bijawar, in 1975, most of this area became a part of the Gangau Wildlife Sanctuary. Fourteen out of 17 villages situated in the park were relocated to make the park an outstanding habitat for Tigers. Tiger sightings in the park are as good as they are in more famous Bandhavgarh and Kanha National Parks. Panna has had a checkered history as far as its tiger population is concerned. It had a thriving tiger population in the 1990s but lost them all by early 2009 due to poaching, infanticide, and paucity of female tigers. However, concerted conservation efforts have helped turn the tide. Park has regained its tiger population as a result of translocation of six tigers from other parks including two captive tigresses.

The park now has over 25 tigers. Panna National Park’s topography is a splendid mosaic. Vast expanses of teak forest and savannah grass lands and is fed by the Ken river, which runs for about 55kms within the sanctuary. Beside the big cats, which can be elusive at times, you can also spot several other animals including Sambar, Spotted Deer, Chinkara, Nilgai, Langur, Wild dog, Hyena, Jackal, Sloth Bear, Gharial, Otter and Crocodile.
