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 were 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.

 

Kings Lodge and Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve

Kings Lodge is nestled between Sal forested hills of Bandhavgarh National Park in a large natural forested estate of 14 hectares in a small tribal village. Kings lodge is environmentally sensitive, harmonious with the natural features of the site and accentuates natural daylight to all facilities. Local knowledge and art has been incorporated in the development and the lodge has been constructed using local manpower. Our guests benefit from our incredible location, outstanding hospitality, an experienced naturalist team, our commitment towards conservation and local communities.
Bandhavgarh was established in 1968 as a National Park and is spread over an area of 448 sq. kms. This national park was declared as a tiger reserve under Project Tiger in the year 1993. It is predominantly covered with vegetation like SAL, SALI, DHOBIN and has vast stretches of grasslands spread over 32 hills, the region though smaller than other wildlife parks has one of the highest density of tigers in the world.

 

Kanha Earth Lodge and Kanha Tiger Reserve

Kanha Earth Lodge is spread in a forested area of 16 acres adjoining the buffer zone of Kanha in a small tribal hamlet. The lodge architecture has been inspired by the Gond tribal villages situated on the fringes of Kanha. The lodge has been built with high standards towards eco-sensitivity, local village cooperation, and a great wilderness experience. As a conscious decision, the lodge is situated remotely, away from the tourism hub, yet close enough for easy access to the park.
Kanha Tiger Reserve’s spectacular Sal and Bamboo forest, rolling grasslands and meandering streams stretch over 1945 sq. km. in the heart of central highlands. This is the original Kipling country so fondly written about in the Jungle Book. The park is the only home to the rare Hard Ground Barasingha found in its large grasslands. Kanha is also home to Tiger, Leopard, Sloth Bear, Deer, Ungulates, Lesser Cats and close to 300 bird species.

 

Pench Tree Lodge & Pench Tiger Reserve

Pench Tree Lodge is a unique boutique experience, set in one of the least explored areas of the Pench National Park. Located in the picturesque village of Sarahiri. The lodge offers its guests proximity to the Karmajhiri gate, and closer home, access to 16 hectares of private forested land to explore and observe the occasional wildlife at close quarters.
While at the lodge, the tastefully done up Tree Houses offer a serene slice of wildlife heaven, perched high up on a tree, surrounded by undisturbed rolling acres of jungle shrub and trees. The six tree houses are private cocoons and yet, are at an easy distance from the dining and recreational spaces. Pench National Park established in 1975 harbors one of the highest densities of prey animals, chased by an estimated 65 Tigers. The landscapes of scrublands, deciduous forest of Teaks and many lakes, streams and Pench River can be instantly associated with the incidents and wild mentions of the animal life in the jungle book of Sir Rudyard Kipling. Pench is popular for Tiger, Wild Dog, Indian Gaur, Jackal & Leopard besides many other mammals & birds.

 

Denwa Backwater Escape and Satpura Tiger Reserve

Denwa Backwater Escape is located overlooking the mesmerizing backwaters of a dam built on Denwa River in Satpura National Park, the area is popularly known as Madhai. It is built on 10 acres of forested land along the river and across the river is the national park which is approached by a boat and then by jeeps to go deeper into the forest. The lodge offers stunning views of the Denwa River, grasslands across and rolling Pachmari hills.
Satpura National Park is spread over 1427 sq km and was formed in 1981 after joining Satpura, Pachmari and Bori sanctuaries and is a unique habitat from about 200 feet to 4000 feet. The terrain of the national park is extremely rugged and consists of fascinating deep valleys, sandstone peaks, narrow gorges, rivulets, waterfalls, thickly dense green forest of Sal and other medicinal herbs, it also has large tracts of Teak forests. Its common fauna comprises Spotted Deer, Indian Bison(Gaur), Tiger, Leopard, Wild Boar, Wild Dog (locally called Dhole), Sloth bear, Black Buck, Sambhar, Four Horned Antelope (Chowsingha), Marsh Crocodile, Malabar Squirrel & Langur Monkey.
