Panna National Park is a
very popular wild life reserve. Located in the central Indian
province of Madhya Pradesh, this national park is at a
distance of almost 57 km from Khajuraho. Among the better
known tiger reserves in India, Panna National Park is one of

the leopards. Tourists who visit Khajuraho, make it a point to
get to the Panna National Park to see the majestic cats in the
wild. The landscape is rocky, the terrain is uneven and the

The density of tigers in this park was less compared to
Bandhavgarh or Ranthambore. Sightings of tigers in Panna have
fallen over recent years, and official tiger population
figures are disputed by naturalists. There were plans to
relocate two tigresses to Panna in 2009 , which actually
happened, but the last male tiger meanwhile disappeared.
The reserve is home to a wide variety of other animals,
many of which can be seen at closer quarters than in other
reserves, because Panna has fewer visitors. There are jungle
