Around 20% of Kanha National Park is open for tourists and Wildlife Safari is allowed in registered open gypsys in pre-set routes. For the tourists, the park is divided into 4 zones – Kanha, Kisli, Mukki and Sarhi. It is said that the fauna of Kanha Tiger Reserve is one of the best across all forests in Asia and was the inspiration behind Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. Sighting of Tigers is not very rare in Kanha and just one glance of the majestic big cat changes the childhood perception about the Tiger depicted as the nasty Sher Khan of the Mogli's jungle. Sighting a Tiger in the wild is an experience, which people carry with them for their lifetime, enticing them to visit Kanha again…..back again.
