Kanha is the daddy of Indian tiger parks, and is the most famous national park of the State, perhaps in all of India.

The park encompasses nearly 940 sq km of pristine sal forest interspersed with grasslands created by the relocation of 26 tribal villages in the seventies and eighties. Apart from the enchanting scenery, the main attractions of the park are the tigers, leopards, spotted deer, sambar deer, gaur and swamp deer (barasingha).

The park hosts the only surviving population of nearly 300 swamp deer in the world. The region is also inhabited by the gond and baiga tribes.
