If one were point to the middle of India, chances are he will pick out the forest of the Banjar and the Halon Balley, the two forming the western and eastern halves of the Kanha Tiger Reserve, which have long been famous for their wide diversity of wildness known as "Maikal Range".
The forests are deciduous, the main tree being the sal, and there are large stands of bamboo. Higher up the steps the forests tend to become dense and mixed with Haldu and Bija trees. Birds in the Park include the Painted Partridge, Shaheen Falcon and Golden Oriole.

The animal is adapted to hard ground unlike swamp deer of the North which live in marshy swamps. Kanha National Park has been instrumental in rescuing the “Swamp Deer” from extinction.
