It is situated in the Central Indian Highlands, which are part of the extensive tableland that forms India’s main peninsula. Kanha’s beautiful landscape is dotted with dense groves of vegetation, hillocks and meadows. Kanha’s meadows are it's lifeline, as they sustain large numbers of Chital, Sambar, Barasingha and Gaur, which in turn support populations of predators and co-predators. Kanha Tiger Reserve is primarily a moist Sal and moist mixed deciduous forest featuring Sal, Bamboo, Tendu, Jamun, Arjun and Lendia. It is home to over 1,000 species of flowering plants and about 350 species of birds (Painted Spurfowl, Rufous Bellied Eagle, Red Headed Vulture, Black Stork etc. )

It's greatest achievement has been the preservation of Hard Ground Swamp Deer or Barasingha from near extinction (they numbered just 66 in 1970). Today, they number more than 400 and are the only surviving population of Barasingha in the wild. The park has a significant population of the Royal Bengal Tiger, Indian Leopard, Sloth Bear, Barasingha and Indian Wild Dog. The famous novel by Rudyard Kipling, 'The Jungle Book', is said to be based on the jungles of this reserve.
