Kanha National Park, seems to be more promising for tiger sightings then other parks in coming next season starting from October. The reason is clear that five tigresses are having cubs. The last quarter, from April 17 to June 17,sightings record suggests that if weather conditions remains calm then this park will witness more sightings then Ranthambore and Bandhavgarh too. However, winters are severe in this area which can be of little hurdle to sightings. Kanha had good mansoon this season so in October 17 will witness less sightings. Hope that from November it will increase.
