The time when Kanha national park was not much popular among wildlife lovers, it was the only zone in which tourists used to do jeep safari. This zone is primarily visited through Khatia entrance gate. From this gate, safari vehicles can enter into this zone in both morning & evening safari rounds. Where as if we are staying in resort near Mukki entrance gate or Sarhi entrance gate, than we can visit this zone during morning safari round only. For evening Kanha zone safari, tourists will not be permitted through these gates. In this safari zone, we can find all kind of landscapes like valleys, plains, meadow areas, some hilly terrains, water bodies etc. Jungle of this zone is beautiful so it is considered as an ideal forest for nature photography.
