Where can we see black panthers in India?
Black panthers in India (or in general) are actually leopards and are not any separate species but melanistic variation of the common Leopard. Thus where ever there is a natural range of Leopards there is a slight possibility of a Black leopard being there but are rare.

Black Panthers in India
Today we can get to see them in
- Kabini Nagarhole National Park (Approx. 240 kms from Bangalore)
- Dandeli Anshi Tiger Reserve (Approx. 410 kms from Bangalore)
- Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary (Approx. 275 kms from Bangalore) and
- Sharavathi Wildlife Sanctuary (Approx. 420 kms from Bangalore)
Kabini and Dandeli are more frequent than the other (w.r.t sightings). If you go by safari sightings, Kabini rules and if you go by camera trap sightings Dandeli-Anshi rules.
