Ken River Lodge and Panna Tiger Reserve

Ken River Lodge made a humble start in 1986 – one of the pioneers of wildlife tourism in the country. The forested estate is home to many mammals, birds, and reptiles. The accommodation is simple and rustic with few mod cons thrown in. The 6 huts and 6 cottages are spread out in a 50-acre mixed jungle in undulating terrain, giving a jungle experience which few in the country can parallel. The lodge also boasts of a 3000 sq.ft. machaan where the meals are served. The machaan popularly known as the Tree House overlooks the Ken River and offers fresh home-cooked meals.
Panna National Park spread over 543 sq. km. was carved out of the hunting reserves of the erstwhile Panna, Chattarpur and Bijawar states. Panna was accorded sanctuary status in 1975 and in 1994 it became India’s 22nd Tiger Reserve. Panna is situated at the junction of the Gangetic plains and the Deccan peninsula. The Panna hills provide the catchment area for the Ken River, which is the lifeline of the park. It is predominantly an open forest, offering a great opportunity to see the tiger and other mammals. It also supports closed-canopy forests, open forest with short grass and undercover, open Savannah woodlands which reflect sub-Saharan habitats, tall grasslands, and degraded scrub.
