Kanha offers a wealth of unique adventures in the wild. Designed around guest preferences, these wondrous experiences are supported by our dedicated staff and guides.
Experience the rich offerings of the mystical Kanha forests on an unbridled, yet meditative jeep safari.
Jeep safari is an exclusive experience of sighting Kanha’s teeming wildlife and flourishing natural habitat.
Navigate through the core or buffer forests of Kanha in this open top jeep safari, which offers a getaway to new vistas in exploration and adventure. Ride off at the crack of the dawn, or venture out in the afternoons as the sun beats a retreat into the transiting evening sky.
Our qualified and experienced naturalists accompany you in our open 4x4 jeeps, specially fitted with front-facing, elevated seats to enhance the safari experience.
Kanha opens from sunrise till 11:30 am and then from late afternoon until sunset. The park permits entry only after sunrise, while exits must be before sunset. Timings do tend to change with the seasons. Places of interest inside the park include Shravan Tal, Kanha Meadows and the Interpretation Centre.
Kanha tiger reserve is also the forest that inspired the popular novel by Rudyard Kipling ‘The Jungle Book’ about a boy who was raised by wolves. It is also famously known as ‘Kipling’s Country’. You would still find Baloo, the sloth bear nosing around for termites, Bagheera, the leopard hunting silently; and the langurs swinging from tree to tree. The mighty Sher Khan still roams free in these magical forests, that comprise one of the last strongholds of this most magnificent of cats, the Royal Bengal Tiger.
Birding walks, nature trails and cycling jaunts.
Witness the exotic flora and fauna unfold on exclusive nature trails, birding, and cycling expeditions. Nature walks can be therapeutic, revving your well-being and your innate connection with flora and fauna. A guided walk through the lush greenery might throw up surprises, of birds and bird sounds you never experienced before. Or the most insignificant beings that home in the pristine wild.
Redefine and reinvent your bond with nature by exploring wild life on foot, a fascinating experience that helps you stumble upon the finer offerings of the wilderness.
The nature trails, birding walks, and cycling expeditions are conducted in the forests adjoining the lodge, with one of our experienced naturalist’s for company. You can also spend some unique moments exploring a few small lakes nearby, the Banjaar River and also the Gond tribal villages during these excursions.
Walk through the natural forests of our buffer zone, through the villages and mud settlements; to reach a scenic hilltop with a flat, expansive plateau. Get floored by the birds eye view of the expansive Kanha National Park, and the forests connecting Pench.
A tribal market or haat (as it is locally called) is a perfect way to soak in the local flavours. Bustling with activity and bursting with a riot of colours, these bazars showcase a fascinating array of display.
These may include local artefacts, pottery, tribal jewellery, fresh organic greens or the catch of the day. These bazaars can be accessed on foot, on a bicycle ride, or you may request for a lodge jeep to ferry you back and forth.
Enjoy the pleasures of pottery and painting through these fun, therapeutic workshops that help you build on a new skill, and take home tangible memories.
Craft workshops with local potters, a painting workshops with Gond painters and artisans; are all very relaxing experiences. These workshops can be only organised on prior request.
Enjoy an alfresco meal while watching the morning sun render its serene glow upon the forests, or as the evening sinks into the ochre sky.
Our personal staff makes the experience eclectic, while serving our gourmet dishes or rustling up a sumptuous meal straight from the grill. Unwind with your dear ones under the star spangled sky, and savour the eclectic experience of a Bush dinner, amidst the mysterious forests sounds.
Bush dinners can be organised only on prior bookings.
