Kanha National Park is divided under zones for easy maintenance and management of the reserve area. Tourism is conducted in 20% of total area under 4 zones namely Kanha, Kisli, Mukki and Sarhi zones. Kanha zone is also called the premium zone because it is located in the middle of the core area and to enter here for safari tourists have to pay extra fees for entry permit.
All tourism zones have limited roads where tourists are allowed to take wildlife safaris in core area of Kanha Tiger Reserve and these roads are also opened or closed as per management requirement and policy. Here we are providing road maps of all four tourism zones of Kanha. This zonal system also helps in spreading the number of vehicles entering the park as required by Eco Tourism guidelines declared by National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) thus decreasing the impact on fragile Eco system and biodiversity of Kanha Tiger Reserve.

To see, enjoy and explore the flora and fauna of Kanha National Park it is good if all zones can be covered with at least 2 safaris in each zone and 2 Jungle treks in buffer zone of the tiger reserve. This needs a minimum 5 night 6 days stay and chances of seeing Tiger, Leopard, Sloth Bear, Wild Dog and other wild creatures are very high. Stay in Kanha for a day or two only with a single safari will not do justice to your holiday. Here above is a map of Kanha national park showing major villages around and demarcation of core and buffer of the reserve.
