Spread over an area of 542.67 square kilometers or 209.53 square miles, Panna National Park is one of the best maintained National Parks in India. Even though the Tiger reserve has lost almost all of its Tiger population due to poaching by 2007, two female tigers were moved to this Tiger reserve from Kanha National Park and Bandhavgarh National Park in 2009. A male Tiger was brought from Pench Tiger Reserve. However, the male tiger started moving back to its original habitat. It was again brought back to this Tiger Reserve and it has now established its territory and started mating the female tigers here. Presently, there are around 10 cubs and 4 Tigers at the Panna Tiger Reserve.

Panna National Park is famous for the Panna tiger reserve safari package, offered by some of the local tourism operators. The National Park cum Tiger reserve is home to a large species of animals. Raneh falls and Pandav falls are two nearby falls to the National Park.
