After Safari Life At Kanha Resort in India
Posted: Jan 31, 2021
One of the most visited tiger reserve in India, Kanha National Park is a wild holiday destination. It is popular for tigers and hence safari which take place almost daily except in the Wednesday evening. Tourists spend days here on excursions in the park sighting tigers and other animals and indulging in photography. While the wildlife enthusiasts carry out their mission to the point of exhaustion, the itinerant holiday makers and those on a fun trip take time off from daily rounds and laze around the resort where they stay.
But the destination does not provide access to sightseeing anywhere near but one can visit the villages and go on nature trek of bird watching. In fact whence you are not on a safari in the park in the core you can opt for the safari in the buffer at least for bird watching and discovering new habitat with visibility of some less seen mammals or reptiles.
Big cat sighting in the buffer is rare but can occur with luck. The third option is to visit the buffer on a night safari. Kanha provides excursions for a limited period usually in the period just after twilight till 10.30 pm. Night time is best for wildlife watching tours in India. The mammals and reptiles emerge after sunset and you can also sight small carnivores and ant anteaters like porcupine. On bush you can come across a civet or even a sleepy leopard..
Life for the lazy is within the four walls of the resorts in Kanha. Nevertheless they provide excellent recreation and relaxation, I mean the good ones. Eat drink and sleep but that is no life with so much to experience even sitting in the library will refurbish your knowledge about nature.
Better than laze around on the hammock while imbibing some chilled mocktail is to dip in the pool. Yes here to you can hold a can in the shallow end of the pool. Lunch after heavy breakfast is delayed but not really Kanha makes you hungry early as food is digested quickly. Off to lunch in the bush or right next to the pool in the sun lit morning. This is a real relaxation with friends to share experiences of safaris and travels. As the dishes pour in slumber takes over and now is the time to laze on the hammock under the Banyan tree.
A short walk in the confines of the hamlets or in the dense forests will enrich you with bird sightings and may be small mammal or a leopard. The evenings are reserved for sun downers by the fire. You can enjoy the still of the night and twinkling stars under the bush besides the warmth of the campfire.
Now this is life in jungle resort at Kanha National Park in India. The right accommodation leads to rich dividend with exciting tiger sightings and bird watching experience. Winter or even early summer is the best time to visit the National Park. Book your ticket to New Delhi fly from there to Jabalpur and drive down to the park.
