Dominated by lush tropical forests, picturesque gorges and cascading waterfalls, Panna is one of the few large forested habitats left in the north-central highlands of India and is the most easily accessible park in this region. Since 2010, an extensive repopulation programme has begun to see an increase in the numbers of Bengal tigers in the park and jeep safaris offers the best possibility of sightings. Other wildlife here includes leopards, sloth bears, nilgais, chinkaras and hyenas, while the open grasslands are punctuated with dry deciduous forests that support more than 200 bird species.
