Located in central India, in the eastern part of the Satpura Hills of Madhya Pradesh, Kanha covers a total area of 1,945 square kilometres. Of this, 940 sq km forms the core area and the remaining 1,005 sq km what is known as the buffer zone; 25 per cent of the park's core area is open to visitors and is called the tourism zone. This is the fabled tiger country of Rudyard Kipling and it was here that he got the feel of the Indian forests. It contains a cross section of the incredible Indian wildlife. This area abounded in wildlife and was a favourite hunting ground during the time of the Raj.
