Panna Tiger Reserve is situated in Vindhyan Hills in northern Madhya Pradesh. In 1994, it was announced as the twenty-second Tiger reserve in the country and the fifth in Madhya Pradesh. The national park is home to several wildlife animals such as the Bengal tiger, Indian leopard, chital, chinkara, nilgai, Sambar deer and sloth bear, rusty-spotted cat, and Asian palm civet. Also, more than 200 bird species, including the bar-headed goose, crested honey buzzard, red-headed vulture, blossom-headed parakeet, and changeable hawk-eagle. 

105-years old Vatsala, a retired matriarch in Madhya Pradesh’s Panna Tiger Reserve, is believed to be the oldest surviving elephant in the world. The Ministry of Tourism of India delivered PTR the Award of Excellence in 2007 as the best-maintained national park in India. Watch the video.
