India - Panna National Park
Some 12 miles (27 kilometers) from the ancient temple city of Khajuraho, Panna National Park is a series of teak, ebony, and gum forests punctuated by a series of grasslands. Like many other tiger reserves and national parks in India, Panna was once a hunting ground for the local aristocracy. Panna, however, gained notoriety in 2009 after government authorities learned that poachers had colluded with park authorities and wiped out the entire tiger population. Thankfully, these majestic cats were re-introduced in 2011, and roam the grounds of the park once more.
