GREAT FOR

    Perfect spot for couples or those looking to spend their time in a beautiful and quiet setting. Can work really well for a group of family/ friends of 8 to 10.

What we love

  • The minute you walk into this place, it will take your heart away! The location is breathtaking with the forest reserve on the other side and the Banjaar River flowing right under the property.
  • The place is also designed with a very high level of aesthetic using a combination of wood, red, mud and whites. With the assistance of the local tribe in the area, the owner couple has created a magical place that one can only imagine until not visited!
  • Each of the gorgeously decorated cottages comes with a patio overlooking the river and the forest reserve. Sip a cup of hot tea or just watch the incredible variety of birds that fly from one tree to another.
  • The cottages are tastefully furnished with four-poster beds and interesting wood furniture, very different from what you might have seen before. The bathroom is equipped with all the modern amenities and also has an outdoor waterfall shower area!
  • Once the sun goes down, your eyes will automatically move towards the star lit sky or the million fireflies that make you want to give up the city life!
  • Such a beautiful place could not have emerged without wonderful people behind it. The owners go out of their way to protect the wildlife in the region, provide employment to the local community and empower the women by teaching them new skills.

What to know

  • The multi course meals with scrumptious food and drinks are typically communal in nature where some really interesting stories are shared from the world over. However, should you want something more private and romantic, you just need to mention it and wait to be surprised!
  • Internet connectivity is limited. You may not be able to do much beyond checking emails.
  • There are frequent power cuts throughout the day. A gen-set powers the electricity during the load shedding.
  • The Banjaar river may not have much water in the months of April, May and June.
  • There are two villages in the surrounding are that sometimes play loud music.
  • The closest market is about 30 minutes away. Plan well and carry whatever you need during the stay with you.
  • Make sure you carry ODOMOS, sunglasses, hats, comfortable walking shoes and binoculars.
  • If you’re someone who cannot handle anything other than the human species, give this place a miss!

Kanha National Park

​​Kanha Tiger Reserve is located in the Maikal Hills of the Satpuras. The lush green sal and bamboo forests, grassy meadows and ravines of Kanha provided inspiration to Rudyard Kipling for his famous novel The Jungle Book.

Kanha is virtually a tiger land, with several tigresses occupying traditionally famous natal areas. Several pockets of high density areas lead to competition amongst tigers for food and space with several signs indicating their presence.

The most precious animal of Kanha is the Central Indian Barasingha also called the swamp deer. The other common animals found in the reserve are leopard, Spotted deer, Sambar, Wild pigs, Grey langur and more than 300 species of birds.

Best Season - November to April

Closed: 1 July to 15 October

Tribal Village Walk

The tribal villages that surround the lush green forests will leave you amazed. Almost all the mud huts are painted blue as the tribes believe in just Lord Shiva, the God who consumed poison that turned his throat blue.

The villages are immaculately clean and beautiful as are the people who reside in them. Each tribe has a unique tattoo design that can be seen on every member typically on the head, arms and legs.

Take a guided walk down any one of these villages and we assure you, it’ll leave a tattoo on your mind as well. Both men and women leave for work early on in the day, so do rise and shine early if you want to have a quick chat with them!

Birdwatching in Madhya Pradesh

Indian Roller. Black Francolin. Painted Francolin. Rain Quail. Blue Breasted Quail. Little Egret. Darters. Stork-billed Kingfisher. Oriental White-eye. Indian Robin. Grey Wagtail. White-throated Kingfisher. And the list goes on…watch small birds, big birds, colourful birds as they fly around from one place to another. Feast for the eyes and senses to say the very least.
