Attraction Tadoba National
Pench National Park
Pench National Park lies nestled in the lower southern reaches
of the Satpura hills, on the southern boundary of Madhya
Pradesh. Earlier a wildlife sanctuary, Pench was given the
status of a tiger reserve in the year 1992, when it was
included under the umbrella of "Project Tiger". Spread over an
area of approximately 758 sq km, the national park has been
named after the Pench River, which flows inside its premises
from north to south. The best time for visiting the park is
November to March.
Landscape and Flora
The flora of the Pench Wildlife Sanctuary is basically made up
of Southern Indian tropical moist deciduous forest. However,
one can also find tropical dry deciduous teak trees making up
its vegetation. One can see a number of seasonal streams and
nallahs crisscrossing through the landscape of the wildlife
park. The Pench River, which is the major source of water for
the rich fauna of the Pench Tiger Reserve, usually experiences
shortage of water around the end of April and mostly, dries up
during this time.
Tigers can be found inhabiting the area around the Pench
River, since it has a very high concentration of preys. As per
an estimate, there are around 25 tigers in the park. If you
want to see leopards, then the peripheral areas of Pench
National Park are your best bet, though they can occasionally
be seen in the deep forest too. Leopard Cats, Small Indian
Civets and Palm Civets are also not seen easily in the open.
Amongst the commonly seen wild animals at the wildlife
sanctuary are Jungle Cats, Cheetal, Sambar, Nilgai, Jackals,
Wild Dogs, Gaurs, Sloth Bear, Chinkara, Langoors.
Kanha National Park
Kanha in Madhya Pradesh (five hours driving from Jabalpur, six
from Nagpur) has sometimes been called the N'Gorongoro of
India. The simile is apt, albeit Kanha is far greener and its
cordon of hills far more densely wooded. Unlike Tanzania's
N'Gorongoro, the Kanha valley is not a volcanic crater, though
the enclosing hills are a consequence of geologically ancient
volcanic activity. The horseshoe-shaped Kanha valley, which
accounts for nearly a third and the oldest part of the Kanha
National Park, is bound by two distant spurs emanating from
the main Mekal ridge, forming its southern rim. The spurs, in
their gently tapering traverse, nearly close in the north
leaving but a narrow opening for the meandering Sulkum or
Surpan river, the valley's main drainage. Herds of the Kanha
miscellany, the axis deer (chital), the swamp deer (barasingha),
the blackbuck (hiran), the wild pig and occasionally the gaur,
throng the central parkland of the valley, providing the basis
for the comparison with N'Gorongoro. With its confiding herds
and relatively tolerant predators, Kanha offers an almost
unrivaled scope to a keen photographer of Indian wildlife.
Pavnar comes under the Wardha district and lies right on the
edge of the Dham River. It is significant from historical
point of view and is counted amongst the most prehistoric
colonies in the district. Pavnar, which lies around 65 km from
Nagpur, is known for Gandhi Kuti and the Paramdham Ashram of
Khekranala, located amidst the Khapra range forests of
Maharashtra, is situated approximately 55 km from the heart of
Nagpur. One of the major attractions of this place comprises
of a magnificent dam, located in picturesque surroundings. The
lush greenery of Khekranala, combined with its pristine
locales and wholesome environment, draws tourists from various
parts of the state.
Ambhora is a very small town, situated at a distance of around
74 km Nagpur. It lies just at the threshold of Vainganga River
and serves as the venue of three fairs, held on annual basis.
The other attractions of the town consist of the famous temple
of Chaitanyesvara. Then, there is the tomb of Har Har Swami, a
