Activities at Kanha
What can you do at Kanha National Park?
A very common question our guests ask is - What can we do at Kanha? Kanha Tiger Reserve is famous for Tiger safari and wildlife photography and most visitors to this beautiful tiger reserve come with these in mind. But, we have so many other activities which normally most hotels in kanha national park do not offer to keep you and your children busy.
We will make a special tailor made package for Kanha as per your requirement. Along with wildlife safari we will include activities which are more sustainable and give a much better experience and make your visit a memorable one.
