There’s a space for every type of traveler here. Whether you’re a single person, a couple, a group of friends or a family, you can’t help but fall in love with this place! Wild life enthusiasts who are looking for a bit of adventure during their stay, will love this place!

What we love

  • This was the first wildlife lodge that was set up in India and dates back to the 1980s! Legend goes that Rudyard Kipling’s friend was here and she’d write him letters describing the place. He got really inspired by those letters and wrote the world famous Jungle Book!
  • The lodge is located right in the heart of forest! Through the day, monkeys scrounge around for the sweet mahua flowers and once energized, swing from one tree to another, while in the night, tigers, leopards, cheetahs and sambah deer tread a well marked path to the water-body and then rest here, ironically, feeling safe and secure.
  • The lounge or living area is an extremely warm place where people come together for communal meals, to relax and unwind or to just enjoy a drink at the bar. There are also multiple cozy set ups, each with its own fireplace, where small groups exchange stories from the world over. This is a place that will feel like a home away from home.
  • The beautiful cottages are interspersed through the forest area and each with its own sit out area. The cottages are simply furnished and equipped with all the modern amenities to make your stay comfortable.

What to know

  • The multi course meals with scrumptious food and drinks are typically communal in nature where some really interesting stories of sightings are shared.
  • Phone and Internet connectivity is fantastic! (Wifi is intentionally available only in the common areas).
  • There are frequent power cuts throughout the day. However, there is a gen-set that powers electricity, including ACs, during this period of load shedding.
  • Make sure you carry sunglasses, hats, comfortable walking shoes and binoculars.
  • The highlight of this lodge is the elephant! She’s super friendly and has her own very strong personality, loved by anyone who meets her. She goes walking for a bath every evening and guests are welcome to go swimming with her and then bathe her! This is an experience you won’t forget for a long time to come!

Awesome Things to do nearby


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

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.

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!
