Now there are about 46 to 52 tigers one can spot here. The bandhavgarh jungle, when it is large enough, becomes a living self-sustaining organism providing its own climate, atmosphere, water and nutrition through its recycling systems. It even has a sleep wake cycle. As more light fills the sky, bandhavgarh begins to awaken.
Initially just 105.40-sq-kms in area, bandhavgarh with 25 resident tigers was noted for its high-density tiger population. Today, it has been extended to an area of 437-sq-kms. About half the bandhavgarh park is covered with fine trees of sal, while mixed forests are found in the higher reaches of the hills. Stretches of bamboo and grasslands extend to the north.

The romance of the kanha national park has not reduced over time-it is still as beautiful. If one were to point to the middle of india, chances are he will pick out the forests of the banjar and the halon valley, the two forming the western and eastern halves of the kanha tiger reserve, which have long been famous for their wide diversity of wildlife.
The park was created in 1955 by a special law and, since then, it has dedicated itself in preserving a variety of animal species. Many endangered species have indeed been saved here. Today kanha is among the few most scenic and beautiful wildlife reserves in asia. This 'tiger country' is the ideal home for both predator and prey. By far the most striking features of this region are the open grassy meadows, where sighting blackbuck, swamp deer, sambhar and chital is common. And, if one can transcend into time, a barefooted mowgli would perhaps come padding along the dusty trail, for this is the land of kipling's jungle book.
