Best Season to Visit Kanha
This article talks about the best season to visit Kanha National Park to increase your chances of Sighting the tiger. Also talks about the best time to do birding as well as the best time to enjoy lush green forest per se (as we found out that not everyone is behind the big cat).
Best Season to Visit Kanha for Tiger Sighting
Winter season [November to February] is probably the best time to visit Kanha National Park. However, the best season to sight tigers would be the hotter months (March, April and May). You can check the TSI (Tiger Sighting Index ™) for various months in our app – WildTrails India App. Seems December & January also seems the best time if you go by the TSI.
There is a morning safari and there is a late-afternoon safari and there is a full day safari. We have been asked by numerous tourists on what is the right time to increase the chances of sighting a tiger and our answer is actually dawn and dusk– that’s the time when the big cats go prowling and walking. That makes both morning and evening sessions very critical. So what about whole day safari then, is that a waste? Not really. That’s when the crowd is gone and you have your own quiet peaceful time and can catch Tigers resting and in playful mood, especially when there are cubs. Also more importantly it is not the full-day that gives you better chance but because you have booked full-day safari, you get the opportunity to be inside the park first and to get out last and that additional 15-20 minute period gives you the best opportunity to sight tigers.
Also note there is apart from regular morning and evening & full-day safaris, there is also night safari in Kanha, and Tiger being a nocturnal animal, you can increase your chances of spotting a tiger. We feel it is ideal to book 4 regular safaris, atleast a full-day safari and one or two night safaris.

We should mention that the fact that Kanha like all other Madhya Pradesh sanctuaries, close during Rainy Season (i.e. from July 1 to 30th September every year). The park is also closed one day on Diwali and one day on Holi. Also, like all parks in Madhya Pradesh, it is closed on Wednesday evenings.
