Panna Tiger Reserve is located in the northern part of Central India. Panna can boast of some of the most ruggedly beautiful scenery, vast flat plateaux separated by steep escarpments. Ken River, which joins the Yamuna, flows through the park forming a perennial source of water in this area. After monsoon rains, the landscape in Panna is dotted with many waterfalls adding beauty to the lush green Vindhyan hills. The main forest types in the park are tropical dry deciduous mixed forest with teak and also considered the northern most limit of teak distribution in India. Among the large predators, tiger is the top carnivore in the reserve with leopard and rarely seen packs of dhole or wild dog. The various habitat types available in these ranges provide haven to good populations of chinkara, nilgai, sloth bear, chital, sambar and wild boar. Panna also boasts of a good population of four-horned antelope, which can be seen mostly in thick grassy areas, patches of good undergrowth and moderate canopy cover. Panna still has a breeding colony of the critically endangered long-billed vulture. Many cliffs of this park have nesting sites of these highly endangered vultures.
