Kanha has a large, healthy population of tigers. But this park features more than tigers; it supports the full range of Indian wildlife described in The Jungle Books. The variety and abundance of wildlife in Kanha is remarkable. The park is famous for its herds of hard-ground Barasingha – also called swamp deer, a large and beautiful endemic animal with 12-point antlers (it has probably been saved from extinction by careful management in Kanha). Also found are herds of the beautiful chital (common name is spotted deer), and sambar, the biggest of the Indian deer. Other commonly seen herbivores include barking deer, nilgai antelope, four-horned antelope, wild boar, and the imposing gaur (also called the Indian bison), which is considered the largest wild bovine in the world. A gaur bull can stand over six feet tall at the shoulder and weigh more than a ton!
Morning will be spent on intriguing jungle game drives in the National Park as you discover the mysteries of wildlife. Rest of the day is free at leisure or enjoy the facilities available at resort.
Please note: The park is closed for afternoon safaris on Wednesdays.

Morning after breakfast proceed for guided city tour of Kolkata. Kolkata is an ‘in your face’ city that shocks and charms the unsuspecting visitor. Long known as the cultural capital of India and home to the Bengal Renaissance, Kolkata continues to spawn generations of poets, writers and film directors. As the former capital of British India, Kolkata retains a feast of dramatic colonial architecture, with more than a few fine buildings in photogenic states of semi-collapse. Love it or hate it, you definitely won’t forget the city on the Hooghly river bank.
Flower Market, 125 years old, the Kolkata Flower Market is eastern India’s largest flower market with hundreds of stalls and many more sitting on the ground. Thousands of flower sellers, who gather daily below the Howrah Bridge from sunrise until sunset to sell their garlands, provide a colorful and eye catching display of bright orange and yellow marigolds carried on the arms, heads and piled on the ground.
Victoria Memorial, one of the renowned monuments in Kolkata, was built in the loving memory of Queen Victoria in 1921. It is an impressive edifice, which is made in white marble and is a perfect blend of Mughal and European architectural styles. It is also a museum that houses some rare pictures of men and women who played a prominent part in the history of India, queen’s dress, along with several artillery weapons from the Battle of Plassey, the Whispering Gallery in the dome and the famed Rosewood piano.
Later, visit the Indian museum, the house of various wonderful and awe inspiring discoveries and excavations undertaken by mankind. Considered one of the oldest and largest museums in the country, the Indian museum and its 60 galleries are replete with a dazzling collection of geographical, archaeological, textile and botanical objects. Be prepared to be stunned by the skeletal remains straight from the sites from Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa, Buddhist stupa, various rare antiques, and a big collection of meteorites.
Marble Palace is an art gallery, depicting history in arts, photographs, oil paintings and beautiful sculptures. The star attractions of the Marble Palace are undoubtedly the collection of masterpieces by Reuben and the paintings by various renowned international artists such as Reynolds, Van Gogh and Rembrandt.
