This is one of the best wildlife reserves in India. The park is located in a large forest located to the south of the river Kabini and is in the list of World Wide Fund's Project Tiger areas. The climate of the place supports a wide variety of flora and fauna.
The vegetation to the east of the park comprises stunted trees while the northern edges have deciduous type of vegetation. This wide diversity has encouraged the growth of different species of animals.
There are many animals in the site including spotted deer, antelope, tiger, nilgiri, langur, bear and almost 2000 elephants.
