Situated in the marvellous Vindhya mountain range, Panna, the 22nd Tiger Reserve of India, is one amongst the six in India. Covering an area of over 542 square kilometres, this reserve is situated beside the Ken river in the centrally located state of India, Madhya Pradesh. It is also only a short while away from Khajuraho, a world heritage site. The Ken river runs through the reserve, giving birth to numerous waterfalls along the way.
Established in the year of 1981 by the government of India, it was declared a Project Tiger Reserve in the year 1984. Although the reserve lost most of its tigers to poaching in 2008, it was gradually revamped with help from WWF and PATA. With 2 tigers initially translocated to the reserve, the officials focused on the reproduction of cubs with meticulous scientific input to keep up the numbers.
