Kanha Safari Guides

kanha park safari

Wildlife Safari is the most exciting and enjoying part of any wildlife holiday tour. in Kanha National Park, maximum two game drives can be undertaken in a single day, one in early morning (begins before sunrise) & second one in afternoon (ends before sunset). Game drive duration of morning safari is longer in comparison to afternoon park safari of Kanha Tiger Reserve.

In each Safari Jeep, one naturalist or guide is compulsory to go with visitors. Safari Guide or Naturalist is the person who can make your game drive a memorable one or can spoil the whole charm of wildlife trip to Kanha. So naturalist plays a key role in success of wildlife safari tour. Fee paid for game drive or safari includes rent of the vehicle, tiger reserve entrance charge and guide fee. Generally wildlife resorts have their own licensed in-house Naturalists whose services are available to guest when he is staying in Jungle Plan or request made for game drive to resort manager in advance. For those who wish to do game drives by their own, without any assistance of resort, they can get naturalist at the entrance gate of Kanha Tiger Reserve, at the time of entrance.

Naturalist/Guides are generally freelancer young men who have passed a written & oral test of their knowledge of flora & fauna of park. Their attentiveness, way of expressing knowledge & communication skill vary somewhat but knowledge level is always good indeed. English language knowledge in-house resort guides are generally better than freelancer guides and are mostly from other locations of India. Most of the freelancer naturalists are from local tribal areas, making use of their natural skill & knowledge of local flora & fauna which is an added advantage over in-house naturalists of resorts. In some of the luxury resorts of Kanha National Park, naturalist also drives the vehicle. During monsoon season, when tiger reserves remain closed for visitors either they work for forest department on daily-wage basis or return back to their homes. Resort naturalists do take part in other activities of resort like account management or go on long-leave during monsoon season. The good thing about these naturalists, whether he is from luxury resort or a freelancer they often exchange information when any two safari jeeps pass-by, mostly about tiger-sighting or wild-calls for the tigers. Such information exchange play important role in locating tiger in forest.

Many Naturalists, working as freelancers, get attached with one or more resorts & lodges to get availed at the time of requirement. It has been seen that some of the well known naturalists have direct links with travel agencies to do all arrangements of Game Drive without any involvement of Resorts & lodges as this would be cheaper option for tour operators and for visitors also. Safari Booking through resorts is generally expensive and often on charge of exclusive safari, resort offers shared jungle safari. It would be better to book safari through local agents as it would ensure exclusive safari unless resort management is also offering exclusive safari or having team of highly trained naturalists.
