Kishanpur Wildlife Sanctuary

Kishanpur Sanctuary was founded in the year 1972 encompassing 227 sq kms of terai forest and green open meadows. It is located in the North Indian state of Uttar Pradesh in Kishanpur district. It is part of the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve close to the town of Mailini.

Kishanpur is a must for wildlife enthusiasts for the sheer variety of flora and fauna found at the place. The main attractions are tigers and swamp deer. But the park is also famous for the efforts of Indian conservationist Billy Arjan Singh who in 1976 introduced a hand reared Bengal tigress into the park to disprove the fact that zoo bred tigers cannot survive successfully in the wild.

The high dense forests of the Sanctuary are interspersed with extensive stretches of grasslands and wetlands. Here once can find one of the finest Sal forests in India, some over 150 years old shooting at least 70 feet tall.

Main Attractions: The main attraction of Kishanpur Sanctuary is the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve. Dudhwa was declared a tiger reserve in 1988 together with Kishanpur Wildlife Sanctuary, Dudhwa National Park, and the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary. Dudhwa tigers constitute about 1% of India's total wild population. Today, there are an estimated 98 tigers and 1,600 swamp deers in the park.

In 1984, a rare Hispid Hare believed to have become extinct was rediscovered in the park. In the mid 1980s, Indian Rhinoceros was reintroduced at Dudhwa from Assam and Nepal.

Most commonly found faunal species apart from tiger and swamp deer include leopard, hog deer, Bengal florican, barking deer, swamp deer, lesser florican, gharial, wild boar, sambar deer, spotted deer, hog deer, rhinoceros, sloth bear, ratel, jackal, civet, jungle cat, fishing cat, etc. Around 400 species of birds including the swamp francolin, great slaty woodpecker and Bengal florican and many migratory birds in winters such as painted storks, black and white necked storks, Sarus Cranes, woodpeckers, barbets, kingfishers, minivans, bee-eaters, bulbuls and varied night birds of prey fill the skies. Over 90 species of fish have been recorded at the park.

At Dudwa National Park, around half of the world's barasinghas can be found.

Best Time To Visit: Kishanpur Sanctuary can be visited throughout the year but the months from February to April are ideal for visiting.
