The best way to reach Kanha is by hiring a vehicle from Jabalpur (in Madhya Pradesh) or Nagpur (in Maharashtra). There are also regular buses from Jabalpur to Kisli via Mandla. Vehicles can be hired for the entire trip along with a driver. It is difficult to get self-driven vehicles for hire. If you are staying at one of the bigger resorts, they may, upon request, arrange for transport for you beforehand.
